Our aim is to inspire and ensure that our pupils are naturally curious about the world they live in. Geography is being able to link practical experience with engaging ideas, suitable for all learners. To promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We are committed to providing pupils with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Birmingham so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.
Pupils should also recognise the cultural significance of geography in today’s world. Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, discussion, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world, improving spoken vocabulary and pupils understanding of how geography affects their own lives, the direction of society and the future of the world.
