What are the aims of our Geography curriculum?

At Tottington Primary School we are passionate about our Geography curriculum, and providing all pupils with a high quality geography education. Our children will have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Children will be equipped with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. They will use the correct geographical terms and vocabulary to communicate geographical ideas effectively.


As children progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. This will be taught through inspirational learning experiences which will enable them to put key geographical skills into place by means of field work, computing and developed geographical skills. Through this, the pupils will gain confidence and have practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. From this, the pupils can continue their education with the geographical knowledge and skills to understanding how humans impact and influence the physical geography of the world around us. This knowledge will help to influence their life choices in making it a better place for all of earth’s inhabitants.


Through our well-planned and sequenced Geography curriculum, our children acquire the vital knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their learning journey and for adulthood. These enable the children of Tottington Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and wider world.
