"The study of geography is about more than just 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 all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together. "

Barack Obama



At All Saints Upton, our aim is to embedd curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will inspire our children to travel and experience other countries and cultures throughout their lives. Lessons will 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 outlined in the National Curriculum 2014.  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.


Each year group is taught Geography topics, focusing around an enquiry question and we follow the Kapow Geography scheme. Children will have weekly Geography lessons during alternate half terms and each year group builds upon the previous year's skills and knowledge, showing a progression and development in their learning. This ensures thorough coverage throughout each Key Stage Phase. In EYFS, Early Learning Goals linked to Geography are taught through topics.


All children access the Geography curriculum and most children access all elements taught in lessons. The planning, delivery and outcomes may be adapted to suit individual needs, in order to ensure learning is accessible for all. Children with SEND may need teaching adapted.  Examples of this might be additional support from the Teaching Assistant or Teacher, adapted resources, extensions in work to promote deeper learning or using technology to record outcomes.


Our progression document is set out below outlining coverage from Early Years to Year 6.
