Flanked by the Lake District to the east, the Solway and views of Criffel to the west and the great border city of Carlisle to the north,
our children are perfectly placed to be inspired by the local physical and human geography of our area. In order to help our children understand, not only how our local area but the wider world has been shaped to become the way it is today, we aim to provide a geography curriculum that inspires in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We 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. As children progress, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. Our geography curriculum is also enhanced through our Sustainable Global Goals projects.
