At Summerlea School, our aim is for all pupils to develop a greater understanding of the world, as well as their place in it. We believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world.
Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops and understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, and be transferrable to other curriculum areas.
