Our Geography curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum. Our progression documents set out the development of knowledge and skills that are essential foundations for
being a geographer. Through studying Geography, pupils will develop an understanding of the diversity of people and places within the UK and across the world. Pupils will develop their ability to compare localities, and to recognise the diversity that occurs across the globe.
Geography is a key driver within curriculum and underpins our half termly thematic units. Teachers plan from the progression documents, and are expected to use the localities and geographical understanding outlined. Teachers will use their expertise about when global events provide an opportunity for reinforcing the knowledge, understanding and skills within the curriculum, and may from time to time plan responsive discrete lessons. Teachers adapt their teaching in response to ongoing assessment to ensure accurate and fluent recall of core knowledge. They provide ongoing feedback which supports the development of the required skills.

Progress will be assessed through the development of pre and post assessment questions. Teachers will use this information to analyse how effectively pupils are achieving or exceeding expectations and to adapt their planning accordingly. Teachers then evaluate the development of skills, providing specific ongoing feedback to pupils about their achievement and what to do next to develop further.
