‘Knowledge is power. Information is liberating.’ Kofi Anan

The intention of the Geography Curriculum at St Edburg’s Primary School is to inspire all children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and its people. We want to ignite a love and passion for Geography and for looking after the world so we can make the world a better place.
Through our teaching, experiential learning and our outdoor learning, teachers provide purposeful and meaningful outcomes for the children with a learning schedule that encourages deep thinking, wondering, asking questions and problem solving.
Teachers promote independent learning and encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it. Our Curriculum plan ensures that teaching expectations are high. It also ensures that skills and knowledge are rigorously taught.
Our Curriculum is also driven by a response to ensure that children are global citizens, as part of this Climate change is a key unit and helps children understand the importance of living sustainably and looking after our world. Living in one of the fastest growing towns gives us a perfect opportunity to learn about urban growth in every key stage in a way that is meaningful to the children.
