The intent of our Geography curriculum is to

  • Inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.
  • Equip children with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
  • Develop knowledge of the interaction between physical and human processes and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
  • Allow children to explore their locality and to investigate, enquire about and recognise their own place in the world
  • Develop skills of interpreting, questioning and analysis of geographical sources of information and data.


How Geography links with our school values:




Be Kind - We learn about our place in creation to be compassionate citizens of the world.





Be Respectful - We develop respect and tolerance for others by learning about different places and cultures.





Be Passionate about Learning - We challenge ourselves to know and understand the world better.





Make a Difference - We learn about our place in the world so that we can responsibly make a difference and look after our planet.



At St Vincent’s we aspire to make the learning ambitious for all learners. Our school curriculum includes the knowledge, skills and life experiences children need to thrive. Our learning is carefully planned and sequenced using the National Curriculum that can be found below:
