Geography is a living breathing subject constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me Geography is a great adventure with a purpose.


At St. Andrew the Apostle our geographical intent is to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We aim to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and the natural and human environment through teaching Geography based upon the 2014 Primary National Curriculum in England.


At St. Andrew the Apostle School Geography teaching focuses on enabling children to think as geographers. Pupils in KS1 develop knowledge about their own locality in Halewood, the United Kingdom and the World. They understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation. In KS2 pupils extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. This includes the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. Our pupils develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.


At St. Andrew the Apostle School our pupils develop a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical features and human processes thus preparing them for the next stage of their learning journey.
