Geography Statement of Intent

Geography provides the foundation for understanding the world around us. It can not only teach pupils about the world they live in, but also how to study it and make sense of various natural phenomena.

In geography, we aim to inspire all children to be curious and interested to gain a deeper understanding of the world God created and the ways humans have influenced, changed and shaped it so far, both positively and negatively. They will be taught about the Catholic responsibility to look after each other, who are our neighbours and our world. They will be encouraged to become responsible citizens, understanding the importance of sustainability and being eco-friendly.

During their time at St Peter’s, children will gradually build up their map skills through innovative lessons, orienteering and fieldwork. There will be plenty of opportunities to investigate the outdoors, go on trips and conduct fieldwork, which we hope will stimulate, consolidate and stretch the learning of our pupils. We believe geography encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. We want our children to develop a deep understanding of their local environment and the diverse surroundings of the wider world, with appreciation of the human and physical characteristics. This includes the children learning the location of different countries, cities and towns, in the UK and across the world. It includes learning about the human and physical geography of these locations and what it is like to live in these places by making observations, carrying out research, reading graphs and charts and asking questions. We aim to develop a real passion and love for geography in order that our children will transition to high school prepared for learning in KS3 and for later life with a love for our planet, and who are prepared to be active global citizens. Geography teaching at St Peter’s will also fully support the school ethos as we aim to inspire awe and wonder of God’s created world within all the children in our care.
