Geography

Intent

‘A high quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.’

At St Francis of Assisi C of E Primary School, we believe that a high-quality, and engaging, geography curriculum will inspire children to explore and develop a deeper understanding of both natural and human aspects of the world. We endeavour to continuously develop the children’s geographical knowledge and understanding to ensure that they have the skills needed to explore and appreciate the world around them.

Through both geography specific lessons and the wider curriculum, we strive to equip the children with a deeper knowledge of the interactions between physical and human processes that have shaped the landscapes and environments of the world, as well as the local community that they live in. By incorporating the teaching of the Global Goals, we strive to shape our children into global citizens and provide them with the knowledge, understanding and passion to help make the world more sustainable for today and for generations to come.

By the time they leave St Francis of Assisi C of E Primary School, children will be competent in the geographical skills needed to:  collect and analyse a range of geographical data, interpret a wide range of geographical sources of information, and present and communicate geographical information in a variety of ways. To achieve this, we aim to develop curiosity of the world and a love of geography, both inside and outside the classroom. We provide children with hands on experience of their local area, allowing them to implement and continue to develop their geographical skills and knowledge.
