The Geography curriculum is planned to ensure that students make progress in their learning and are equipped with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
Pupils will build on their knowledge of globes, maps and atlases and apply and develop this knowledge routinely in the classroom and in the field. They will interpret Ordnance Survey Maps, focusing on grid references and scale, topographical mapping and aerial and satellite photos. They will also utilise GIS to view, analyse and interpret places.
Resources are differentiated and engaging to ensure that all of our students are inspired to learn and to foster an enjoyment of Geography.
We provide our young people with the skills to cope and succeed in the wider world by embedding cultural capital and celebrating diversity through a wide range of texts and resources.
Literacy and communication skills are developed throughout the curriculum and assessment is used regularly to ensure Geography targets are achieved and exceeded.
