Growing Brighter Futures

Content Scroll


At Clapham Manor, our geography curriculum aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. It equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. As well as providing the pupils with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes, providing them opportunities to think critically about their growing knowledge on the world. Our approach to the teaching of geography is to help encourage pupil’s curiosity whilst inspiring them to have a fascination of the world and its people.


The content of our curriculum aims improve the pupil’s geographical knowledge, vocabulary and map skills, whilst giving them opportunities to access numerical data and graphical modes of communication. It develops their contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places and understanding the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, along with understanding how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. Geography is celebrated within the school as one of humanity’s big ideas so that pupils are able to investigate the world and its ever changing human and physical landscape and are able to understand and explore alternative futures.
