At Fairfield Park Lower School, we value Geography. WE ARE GEOGRAPHERS!

Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. At Fairfield Park Lower School, we teach our children to have good knowledge and understanding of the world around them and the local community in which they live. We believe that geography provides a way for children to develop a sense of curiosity and appreciation for the diverse world we live in.

Our Geography curriculum aims to equip pupils with life-long skills and knowledge about places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes, including fieldwork.

As our pupils progress, 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.

Through our teaching of geography, we will investigate environmental concerns with the aim that our pupils will become responsible adults who protect our planet for future generations.
