Curriculum Intent for Geography.

Our vision here at Scargill is to aim to provide a high quality geography education that creates in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our teaching will equip pupils with the 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. Geography will be taught through themed based lessons alongside and within other curriculum subjects, eg, Literacy, I.C.T, as well in separate geography lessons.  As far as possible, we believe geography should be biased towards practical lessons, with maps, models and fieldwork playing a key part. Trips and visitors also greatly enhance our geography curriculum.
