At the Wordsley School we aim to provide all students with the knowledge and skills to understand the world around them with an awareness of the physical and human processes that shape it. We want our young people to be curious and interested in the world around them and to become effective Geographers and citizens. A high-quality geography education should 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. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

At the Wordsley School it is our aim to develop contextual knowledge of locations, specifically their human and physical landscapes and the processes involved in creating change. We aim to ensure that young people understand that the physical and human landscape of the world is ever evolving through interdependence and geographical processes. We want our young people to be competent in the geographical skills required to collect, analyse and interpret data from a range of sources and offer fieldwork experiences to deepen their geographical understanding.
