A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Geography at St Peter's
At St. Peter’s we believe that geography is a crucial area of learning for our pupils and we are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage in the subject. Geography has extraordinary educational potential for informing our children as they grow up and become citizens of the world.
The subject is so much more than pure locational knowledge. Geography not only helps pupils understand the awe-inspiring enormity and power of nature, such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions and tsunamis, but also the human impact of these events too. It challenges pupils with real-world issues that are local and relatable to them as well as global. The subject highlights the importance of communication and information sharing, in addition to providing children with practical, useful, field-work skills.
Most significantly, our children live in a time where looking after our planet is more important than ever, it is only right that we give them the knowledge and tools to do so.
We follow the National Curriculum for Geography.
