To ensure all pupils:

  • Understand the importance of good relationships with the local and wider community, and to promote the active co-operation of teachers, non-teaching staff, governors, parents, advisors and inspectors in achieving the aims of the school. 
  • Develop knowledge and understanding of ideas, processes and skills and relate these to everyday experiences.
  •  Learn about ways of thinking and of finding out about and communicating ideas.
  •  Explore values and attitudes through Geography.


  • Geography education begins in Early Years through Understanding the World and continues to build in terms of vocabulary, inspiring in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching of geography equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge provides the tools and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. Fieldwork studies should strengthen children’s understanding of their own and wider communities in order to develop a sense of pride and willingness to protect the world around them for the future.
