Geography Statement

The Geography Subject Leader is: Miss Vikki Scott
vscott@ipmat.co.uk

It is our intent for the Geography element of our school curriculum to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will
remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching 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. By revisiting these areas of learning regularly children will remember more, know more and understand more. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their
understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We want our children to gain confidence and have practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

Geography in the curriculum

• We plan using the National Curriculum.
• We enhance the curriculum using progression grids.
• Subject Progression grids are used to develop long term planning.
• Teachers use the long-term planning to plan units of work and deliver individual
lessons.
