Geography Intent Statement

Statement of intent


Geography develops pupils’ understanding of the world in which they live through the study of place, space and environment.


Whilst Geography provides a basis for pupils to understand their role within the world, by exploring locality and how people fit into a global structure, the subject also encourages children to learn through experience, particularly through practical and fieldwork activities.


Through the teaching of Geography, St Anne’s Catholic Primary School aims to:

  • Increase pupils’ awareness, knowledge and understanding of other cultures.
  • Develop pupils’ graphic skills, including how to use, draw and interpret maps.
  • Make pupils aware of environmental problems at a local, regional and global level.
  • Encourage pupils to commit to sustainable development.
  • Develop a variety of skills, including those in relation to problem-solving, ICT and presenting conclusions in an appropriate and creative way.
