The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.

Geography Intent Statement

At St Vincent’s Primary we provide a high quality geography curriculum, which is designed to both inspire and fascinate our children about the world and the people who inhabit it. We ensure that a comprehensive understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes provides a good foundation for further learning. It is important that our children have a good knowledge about, people, resources, natural and human environments, the area they live in as well as the more diverse areas of the world.

We ensure our children develop their geographical skills through a variety of means; using maps, globes and aerial photographs allowing them to understand their position in Europe and the world beyond. We want children to be able to collect, analyse and interpret their own data, using field trips and educational visits thereby encouraging a love of the natural world and a desire to protect it for future generations. Our children are encouraged to respect the earth’s natural resources and take responsibility for how their actions can impact on other species on our planet.
