The teaching of Geography at St. Ignatius Catholic School aims to inspire curiosity and understanding of the world around us and the people within it. Through fieldwork, pupils develop a deep respect for their environment and their own personal safety. They confidently communicate geographical understanding of key physical and human features as well as contextual knowledge of significant places, providing a strong base to understand interdependence and change over time.
Geography is taught cross-curricularly, with meaningful links to all other areas. Pupils become responsible for their own learning through open ended challenges and contextual activities. Pupils work collaboratively and supportively to challenge all pupils to meet and exceed their potential. By following pupil lines of enquiry, pupils have ownership of their learning, developing confidence and focus.
