A high-quality geography education should inspire pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical processes.
Geography presents a unique contribution to the national curriculum. It studies people’s interaction with the environment. It allows children to explore social, environmental, economic and political aspects of place, whilst comparing local and global settings. Pupils should be given the opportunity to develop a sense of enquiry which encourages them to question and make suggestions about people, places and events.
