"The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together". Barack Obama

 Geography is an enquiry led practice that seeks to answer fundamental questions about the world around us. We provide the core skills of geography, using the national curriculum as a starting point to engage in meaningful and relevant dialogue. Geography provides knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deeper understanding of the Earth's key physical and human processes.

We provide a coherent scheme of work to ensure that pupils build on previous learning and make links with other subjects and connections to issues in the wider world. Pupils use the skills of measurement, interpretation, fluent specialist knowledge and vocabulary in order to communicate geographical information in a variety of ways. We are fortunate to have extensive school grounds and a plethora of local areas of geographical interest. The inclusion of fieldwork is an essential element that enables pupils to connect with their local community and environment and bring subjects to life.

Core knowledge provides the foundations from which to explore deeper understanding, differing perspectives and a starting point for geographical conversations. Geography deepens pupils understanding of what places are like, how and why places are changing and the connections and interdependent relationship between them. From this learning they form a deeper connection with the world and an understanding of their place within it.
