Geography Intent

At St. Francis, we believe that an understanding of Geography provides children including those that are disadvantaged or have Special Educational Needs, with a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live in whilst simultaneously providing children with an understanding of the impact and role they have as individuals on our world.  As such, its value cannot be understated. Consequently, our Geography curriculum is designed to provide all children with the passion and motivation to investigate and enquire about the world, its people, its past and its future. Through a carefully sequenced and challenging curriculum, children are exposed to engaging, purposeful and diverse experiences to deepen their geographical knowledge and understanding on their journey as geographers. Furthermore, we are committed to ensuring that our teaching develops children’s fieldwork skills as well as their knowledge about the world’s physical and human processes so that they are able to confidently navigate their way through our ever-evolving world.
