Welcome to Our School!



Curriculum Intent

In Geography we inspire children to ask and answer questions about places, the human and physical processes that shape them and the people who live in them.  Through Geography we are able to help pupils make sense of their surroundings and develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world.

Through Geography our children will encounter different societies and cultures. This helps them to ‘think globally’, realise how nations rely on each other and can inspire them to think about their own place in the world and their responsibilities to the environment.
