It is our intention that Geography at Freeman School should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. It is vitally important that children are taught about the diverse environments outside their immediate vicinity and how these people and places link together. We aim to develop pupils’ core knowledge (including location and vocabulary) alongside their sense of place (showing an awareness of the views and values of others). We will do this at a variety of scales including local, regional and national.

The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
    • collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
    • interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
    • communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
