At St Mark’s Church of England Primary School, it is our intention that our Geography curriculum will inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world around them, how its processes fit together and how to make a difference and become positive contributors to it. The teaching of Geography will be both stimulating and motivating in order to capture our pupil’s inquisitive and curious minds to in turn fuel their motivation to learn. It should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Through the teaching of Geography, it is reinforced and understood that diversity is celebrated and equally practised whether this be on a local or global scale. As a Church of England school our Christian faith values of Respect, Responsibility, Trust, Understanding and Fairness are at the heart of teaching and learning in Geography. It is our intention that Geography will promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development helping them to have a greater understanding of their place in the world and their rights and responsibilities to other people and to the environment. Together we strive for the highest standards in learning and work and we recognise the value that a high-quality enriched Geography curriculum can offer to our pupils. We aim to enrich our pupil’s cultural capital and encourage them to continue to build their knowledge and undertake new life experiences throughout their life.
