The school’s vision is modelled in the Geography curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all.

We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential.

We want our students to be successful members of the community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of the curriculum to enable this.

Core Values across the curriculum Geography

Updated: 17/01/2023 748 KB

Our curriculum intent is:

  • Coherently plan, sequence and adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer breadth of study at KS3 that is sequential in leading to study at GCSE level; all students will be stretched and challenged over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
  • Develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through digital technology creating learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for life.
  • Embed a range of wider enrichment opportunities and experiences, at least one per year, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values through the Geography curriculum.

As a result, the Geography curriculum will:

  • Ensure that our students have a broad range of Geographical Knowledge including awareness of both Human and Physical aspects of the Earth’s development.
  • Ensure that our students develop Geographical Understanding of Human and Physical interactions on Earth including both positive and negative impacts.
  • Ensure that our students develop Geographical Skills including mapwork, fieldwork, spatial and temporal awareness plus analysis and interpretation of graphs, diagrams and photographs.
  • Ensure that our students develop a love of and empathy for the planet they live on via an active, dynamic and experimental curriculum delivered with passion by knowledgeable staff.
  • Develop digital skills to remove all barriers to learning so that all students achieve and ensure that our students appreciate the importance of Geography in the development of skills for life and employability.
  • Ensure students are challenged and stretched by developing their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills in order to provide foundations for every aspect of school life.
