Michael Palin: “You can travel the seas, poles, deserts and see nothing. To really understand the world you need to get under the skin of the people and places. In other words learn about geography.”

Geography at Staverton develops children’s understanding, experience and curiosity of the wider world.

What geography looks like at Staverton

  • Teaching will equip pupils 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. 
  • Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time 
  • Children learn and are able to use technical terminology in appropriate contexts, making links to the world around them

We are experts in geography because:

  • We develop contextual knowledge of places on land and at sea including physical and human characteristics
  • We understand how physical and human geographical features arise and how they change over time
  • We have the skills that enable us to collect, analyse and communicate with data gathered through both primary and secondary sources
  • We interpret a range of maps, diagrams, globes and photographs
  • We communicate geographical information through maps, diagrams, numerical and qualitative skills and writing at length
