At Oak Tree, we aim to develop confident geographers, who have a secure understanding of the key geographical concepts. These include:
- Environmental Impact and Sustainability
- Cultural Awareness and diversity
- Environment (physical and human processes)
We lay the foundations of geographical knowledge and skills in EYFS and this progresses through to the end of Key Stage 2. The British values of tolerance and mutual respect, as well as the 9 protected characteristics, are an integral part of the curriculum as we study a wide range of people, places and cultures.

The National Curriculum
The National Curriculum for Geography aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
- understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
- are competent in the geographical skills needed to:
- collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through
experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
-interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
-communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
