At Ashburton Primary School, Geography education has the children at the heart of everything we do. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for Geography; provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensure the progressive development of Geographical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for the children to develop a love for the subject. Furthermore, we aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils 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.
