Highcliffe St Mark Primary School
Geography Vision Statement
Learning in geography should inspire the children with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people and enable them to develop necessary skills to interpret and appreciate what they see. At Highcliffe St. Mark Primary, children will develop an understanding of the human and physical features of their immediate environment and build upon this to develop place knowledge and geographical skills and fieldwork, before branching out and examining the wider world. We believe children need to understand the differences between places and their cultures and be able to recognise how these change over time. Children’s learning is developed through local fieldwork and educational visits. We want to encourage our pupils to be global citizens, educated and aware of the world we live in, the responsibilities we have to protect it and the positive impact we can have.
