‘The study of Geography is more about memorising places on a map.  It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures, that exists across continents.  And in the end, it’s about using that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.’

Barak Obama

Our Vision

Geography is part of the World disciplines at Warter school, which aim to develop and broaden pupils’ understanding of the world: its culture, faiths, land, people, language and relationship with history. Geography at Warter school aims to allow children to immerse themselves in the wider world, as well as their local environment, and through this, develop their understanding of the core concepts of geography: place and space, physical geography, human geography, the environment, cultural awareness and geographical skills and fieldwork. We strive for our pupils to be able to explain their place in the world and discuss how geography influences their lives now and will in the future. 


Our curriculum is driven by big geographical questions and knowledge is sequenced to allow pupils to make progress through concepts such as space, place, scale, interdependence, cultural diversity, and human as well as physical processes. We encourage curiosity through thinking, speaking and working like a geographer; encouraging students to communicate findings and come to conclusions about the key questions they study. We wish to create students who are able to thrive in the 21st century because they understand both their own personal geographies and the powerful knowledge geography can teach them about how our world works.



Geography has at its heart the skills that allow children to critically consider assumptions they hear about other places and people.  It asks them to place knowledge in context and consider things from different perspectives while thinking carefully about views that they hear about other cultures, countries, and our climate.  In doing so, we teach them to evaluate knowledge in its context.






A key aim of teaching in geography is to give pupils an awareness of our changing world and the impact that our actions have.  In doing so – through the teaching of consequences and inter-connectedness – we teach them to become responsible citizens.



Environmental awareness refers to the responsibility pupils learn for the environment and the role they play within, not only their local environment, but the impact on the wider world. Consequently, this develops their long-term interest in world news and current affairs as they recognise how small and interconnected the world is.
