Statement of Intent
Geographical Skills & Fieldwork
Human & Physical Geography
Purpose of Study
A high-quality geography education should inspire pupils’ curiosity and equip them with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human environments. They should gain a deep insight into the Earth’s processes, understanding the interaction between physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills help children understand how the Earth’s features are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
