Subject Leader Statement

"Geography equips children with the knowledge and understanding they need to become active and engaged global citizens, ready to tackle the challenges of the 21st century."


Geography is taught through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) scheme which enables children to approach learning by developing the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to confidently explore the physical and human geographical features of their local area and the wider world. Through the IPC units, learning provides pupils with opportunities to learn about the world as it is now and the many ways that it has been influenced by human activity. In addition, they will acquire the skills to analyse maps and create their own, use technical vocabulary to describe geographical processes, collect and present data that draws conclusions about places and geographical issues, and use aerial photography to explain the physical and human processes that occur in a geographical region.

The IPC has been integrated with the National Curriculum to ensure pupils meet the statutory requirements in a creative and stimulating way. When planning for the IPC, teachers adapt the units of work to create half-termly or termly topics that pupils can relate to and that cater to their specific interests. They are adapted to meet the needs of every child and provide challenge to all.
