"Working together to achieve value and recognise the strengths of all"
Geography - Our Vision
The school follows the National Curriculum as defined by the Department for Education in geography.
The study of geography involves pupils in exploring the relationship and interactions between people and the environments in which they live and upon which they depend. Many of the pupils who now attend our school will live to see the next century and inhabit a world of potentially 11 billion people. The many opportunities and challenges they will face during their lifetime will be very much about geography – personal, local, national and global so it is fundamental that our children need to know about geography and to think like geographers.
Geography helps to prepare them for life in the 21st century with all of its currently unknown possibilities. We aim to develop young geographers who can make connections between the natural world and human activity and to understand the kind of questions geographers ask.
We ensure that what our pupils learn in Geography and how they learn it not only inspires and stretches them intellectually, but also helps to develop their spiritual, moral, cultural and physical development to help prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in the 21st century.
As a church school we use our Christian Ethos when studying other cultures. This helps children to empathise and understand the sometimes vast injustices caused by the geographical differences of our planet.
