Geography Curriculum Intent

 

The purpose of the Geography curriculum at St. Edmund’s is to provide pupils will a general, robust overview of Earth’s physical and human processes. We aim to give a broad coverage of the major disciplines within the subject with a strong emphasis on developing their geographical knowledge. The most important aspect of the subject for our department is the development of locational knowledge and a sense of place- what is the purpose of geography if not to inform people of where they are and what other places are like?

The relevant geographical skills such as map-reading and data interpretation are taught concurrently with the relatively equal balance of physical and human geographical knowledge. We hope to develop our pupils’ appreciation of and interest in the development of our planet over time and the contemporary challenges that we face as a species.
