The teaching of geography should provide children with the cultural capital that they will need to succeed in their lives beyond primary education.

Through trips, visits and discussions of current affairs, children should become engaged with the world around them, at a local, national and international level. We want our pupils to develop a sense of agency and responsibility, as well as pride in their local community.

We want them to be able to speak in a confident and knowledgeable manner about a range of geographical topics. 


As children progress through school, skills should be built upon each year in order to develop a deep and precise understanding of the geography curriculum. The cyclical nature of the Geography National Curriculum means that topics are revisited in different year groups. We need to ensure that there is a clear progression in skills which is clearly mapped in our progression of skills documents starting from EYFS to year 2.
