The geography curriculum at Eastwick meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and is in accordance with the school’s Curriculum Intent. Therefore, it prepares children to be ‘Ready for Everything’ in their futures in terms of:
- Success in the next stage of their education and beyond: by ensuring children have a diverse knowledge of the world including their locality; by providing a strong focus on geographical knowledge and fieldwork skills so that children think like a geographer; by ensuring children understand how the earth’s features, at different scales, are shaped, interconnected and changed over time.
- their ability to navigate life’s personal Challenge: by developing curious, explorative and critical thinking, with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence.
- understanding their place in communities at global, national and local levels and seize the Opportunity of the future: building an awareness of how geography shapes our lives, and encourages pupils to become resourceful, active citizens who will have the skills to contribute to and improve the world around them.
