What will our geographers, surveyors and town planners be able to do when they leave us?


Our geographers, surveyors and town planners will have been inspired by a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Children will be equipped 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.


They will use the correct geographical terms and vocabulary to communicate geographical ideas effectively. As children progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. The children will understand how humans impact and influence the physical geography of the world around us.


This will be taught through practical learning experiences which will enable them to put key geographical skills into place through field work, using maps both digitally and physically, and developing geographical skills using the community around them as we live by the River Arun and in the South Downs National Park. 


We implement the curriculum as seen below on the medium term plan. 

We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:

  • Summative assessment of pupil discussions about their learning.
  • Images of the children’s practical learning.
  • Interviewing the pupils about their learning (pupil voice).
  • Pupil’s books are scrutinised and there is the opportunity for a dialogue between teachers to understand their class’s work.
  • Annual reporting of standards across the curriculum.
