‘Geography explains the past, illuminates the present and prepares us for the future.’Michael Palin
At Sandford, we want our pupils to foster a curiosity for people and places, awe and wonder at the magnificence of the natural world and understand our role in taking care of the planet for future generations. Our intent in all classes is that children can read about, watch, explore and debate the world around them: locally, nationally and globally. We aim for them to become geographers who can articulate their understanding, backed up by research and fieldwork, to make sense of their planet and the people who live on it, and to respect and care for it as adults.
The content of our Geography curriculum allows pupils to develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places and understanding of the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, along with how they bring about variation and change over time.
