The Geography Curriculum Intent:
The Geography curriculum is designed to provide pupils with a strong foundation of skills and content that will enable them to achieve their full potential in as students of the discipline but also also to make them conscientious local and global citizens.
Therefore the curriculum is also designed to promote an awareness and interest in both the human and physical world. We want pupils to be able to see a clear link between what is taught in class and their everyday lives. Furthermore we strive to get them to be able to think critically about a whole host of important issues. These range from climate change to child labour, right through to deforestation. We also are keen to develop an understanding of the physical environment. From simple questions such as why does it rain?; to more complex ones, such as how do plate tectonics shape our world? Geography is a subject that is alive and relevant and our teaching reflects this.
