As a values-led school, our curriculum is underpinned by promoting inclusion, happiness and raising aspirations. It is through these values that we develop the whole child. We believe that the skills we equip our children with will enable them to go into the world as curious, independent thinkers who are able to appraise and consider any views they are exposed to.
Geography Subject Intent
It is our intent that Geography will inspire our children to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, specifically the environment and communities that they live in. In Geography, we aim to broaden children’s real-life experiences, providing a comprehensive curriculum for all our learners. Developing a global understanding, students will pose questions and seek answers as they explore their local area and develop connections to the wider world through their own heritage and experiences making cross curricular links. We believe in equipping our students with the skills they will need to become global citizens, interacting with the world with care, being proud of the community they live in.
