Intent/What we aim to do through our Geography Curriculum

In Geography, children are given the opportunity to learn about their local environment and the wider world. We believe that this is important so that the children can develop an understanding of how they fit into the global community and can carry out their Catholic duties of being stewards of the Earth. Adaptations are made to Geography lessons to ensure that all children are able to access the curriculum and are not disadvantaged by Special Educational Needs or Disability. We focus on:

  • Locational knowledge
  • Knowledge of different places
  • Human and Physical Geography
  • Geographical skills and fieldwork
