Considerate, Co-operative, Confident

Geography Curriculum Page

Our School Vision: Our goal is to produce members of society who are Considerate to everyone they meet, who have a Co-operative approach to life and who are Confident in each other and in themselves to strive for the very best that they can be.

We aim to achieve this by using Christian values as our guide and helping them to grow within a caring and inclusive community

How Geography fits into the vision: 

At St. Bartholomew’s Primary School, we believe Geography is an important part of the curriculum where pupils can become engaged and develop key skills.  Geography is an exciting, relevant subject which can be seen in action in the daily lives of our pupils.  There are many cross-curricular links to ensure pupils are able to see the subject in context of themselves and the lives of the community around them and wider world, developing their ideas of global citizenship. 

Our Geography Subject Leader: 

Hello, my name is Mrs Connor and I lead geography.  I believe there has never been a better or more important time to study geography.  Geography helps you make sense of the world around you.  It’s hands on, relevant and fun.  We are very fortunate to have such beautiful landscape in Whitworth and we aim to use our local environment as much as possible.

Our Geography Curriculum: 

Our Geography Curriculum follows the National Curriculum requirements and provides part of our and balanced curriculum unique to our school, ensuring our pupils’ develop key geographical skills and knowledge.

Our geography intent:

Our intent is that the geography curriculum will enable the children to have first-hand experiences of the world around them, to learn how to draw and interpret maps, develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving.  Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, children will gain an appreciation of life in other cultures.  Geography teaching also motivates children to find out about the physical world, the importance of sustainable development and promote key British Values.
