At Thomas Jones, we meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for Geography; providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensuring the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills; and developing in children a love for geography.

The impact and measure of this is to ensure that children are equipped with geographical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world. We want the children to have thoroughly enjoyed learning about geography, therefore encouraging them to undertake new life experiences now and in the future.

The outcome of a rich rigorous and connected experience of learning in geography will be a knowledge rich geographer who can:

  • Ask pertinent geographical questions;
  • Assess and critically evaluate potential answers to those questions;
  • Make reasoned judgements on the evidence;
  • Understand and empathise with the views of others;
  • Consider possible actions/reactions and their consequences;
  • Adopt a solution-focused approach to geographical challenges.

Our children will have built up a broad range of skills and will be able to apply these independently.
