What are we aiming for?

At High Hesket CE School we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Using our curriculum drivers children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of their locality, our world and their place in it. The geography curriculum at High Hesket CE School enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject; we seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about our planet and all that inhabit it which is connected to the natural world will promote life-long learning.  We aim to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources. The curriculum is designed develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at High Hesket CE School and also to their further education and beyond.
