A high-quality Geography curriculum inspires, in pupils, a life-long curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s fundamental physical and human processes and a depth of understanding of the interaction between them. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features, at different scales, are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
The National Curriculum for Geography aims to ensure that all pupils:
• develop locational knowledge of globally significant places (terrestrial and marine).
• understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human features of the world, how they are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time.
• are competent in geographical skills, including collecting, analysing and communicating data gathered through fieldwork.
• have opportunities to interpret a range of sources of geographical information including maps, diagrams, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
• communicate geographically, through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length
