Curriculum Lead: Susy Furness and Ruth Cotton
Our high-quality geography education will inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with the children for the rest of their lives. Teaching will equip children 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. Children’s’ knowledge of the formation and use of landscapes and environments develops through high-quality teaching of the four key strands of Geography (locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork).
The impact and measure of this is to ensure that children at Coten End are equipped with geographical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world. Children should leave us with a growing knowledge about how the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes. Furthermore, we aim to equip children with skills and values that can be applied more universally. We want the children's enthusiasm for the subject to encourage them to seek further opportunities to develop their skills and understanding in the future. Children leave Coten End with a strong understanding of the world, people and their impact.
