At Barton Clough, we recognise the importance in helping children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of their place in the world, preparing them to live in a world of tomorrow. We strive to inspire children’s curiosity to learn more about the world through our engaging and exciting Geography curriculum. Geography teaching equips 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, we hope 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.
