John Harrox Primary School


Our school aims to provide high quality geography education which will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

We teach the geography subject content outlined in the National Curriculum in a progressive way, according to our subject progression maps and subject overviews.

We aim to ensure the children can develop a global view of the world, developing an understanding, appreciation and empathy towards others and a greater understanding of the world in which they live which is encompassed in one of our four key drivers; Global Outlook.

Teaching will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s keys physical and human processes. 

As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. 

Children will learn geography through an enquiry based approach using hands on fieldwork, maps, photographs, making observations, carrying out research, reading graphs and charts and asking geographical questions.

In addition, it is the aim of the geography curriculum to provide the children with first-hand experiences of visiting some of the locations they are learning about such as; the area in which they live, Moulton; Malham Cove and Hunstanton.
