Curriculum Statement: Geography

Geography promotes curiosity of cultural differences and the impact human civilisation has on our planet. 

At our school, pupils will explore a wide range of geographical concepts and as they do this they will develop an ethos of mutual respect and inclusion.  Through fieldwork and engaging in active discussion, learners will be equipped with skills that will prepare them for the challenges ahead, embracing technology and promoting a life-long love of learning. By utilising both indoor and outdoor learning environments children will develop independence, resilience and a positive attitude towards Geography. 

Together we will:

  • Work in partnership with the wider community to achieve the highest standards of learning. 
  • Develop and maintain an ethos of mutual respect between communities and promote self-esteem, responsibility, independence and confidence  
  • Promote positive attitudes and understanding towards Geography
  • Provide a learning environment which enables children to become happy, secure and resilient.
  • Build on the positive relationships with national and global communities to promote respect and inclusion for all.
  • Prepare all children for the challenges ahead, embracing technology and promoting a life-long love of learning. 

Children are immersed into the subject using a variety of practical and cross-curricular learning opportunities. Due to our school’s location, learners are able to investigate and explore a wide range of concepts that can be applied within their local area. 

At New Brighton Primary School we provide unique opportunities for children to explore the diverse environments within our locality. We encourage a wide use of ICT resources to explore countries and lifestyles that differ to our own. Further to this we invite local experts and professionals in to school, to enrich children’s learning and to highlight the importance of geographical concepts in the real world.
