Our geography curriculum enables pupils to develop a sense of place whilst exploring, investigating and understanding the human and physical processes that impact on our planet. We want children to ask geographical questions about the world around them, make suggestions about how and why environments have changed over time, be able to recognise and discuss both human and physical features of contrasting locations, and use a range of map skills. Their growing knowledge of the world around them should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of differing landscapes and environments. We ensure that our curriculum gives pupils opportunities to become ‘real geographers’ by providing practical experiences through planned day trips, residential visits and local area field work studies.


Our history curriculum ignites a curiosity that enables pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. We also explore the history of our own local area. Our pupils gain the skills required to be a historian; they become equipped to ask perceptive questions, think critically, identify sources of evidence, understand how we know about events from the past, and appreciate how events from the past shape our world today. We achieve this through our immersive learning journeys and by enhancing the curriculum with a variety of day trips and in-school experiences.
