At Springfield Academy our high quality geography education is designed to inspire in our children a curiosity and fascination about the world and it’s people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our curriculum considers the geographical location of the school, the content of the National Curriculum and the current geographical climate to ensure our children have an accurate understanding of the world in which they live. The essential geographical knowledge has been carefully sequenced to ensure it progresses year on year as our children move through the school. Our curriculum equips our children with knowledge about places (both in Britain and abroad) and a number of Earth’s physical and human processes.  

We aim to ensure that all of our children have the essential characteristics of a geographer: 

  • An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary 
  • An excellent knowledge of where places are and an accurate understanding of what they are like both in Britain and the wider world 
  • A comprehensive understanding of the way in which places are interdependent and interconnected 
  • Fluency in geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills as well as effective presentation techniques 
  • The ability to reach clear conclusions and explain their findings 
  • Excellent fieldwork skills and other geographical aptitudes and techniques 
  • The ability to express well-balanced opinions rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current issues in society and the environments 
  • A genuine interest in the subject and a real sense of curiosity about the world and the people who live here
