Geography

Curriculum Intent

The teaching and learning of geography, aims to develop knowledge, skills, concepts, values, and attitudes through an approach that sees geography as an integral part of the whole school curriculum. Geography offers a unique importance in equipping pupils with key attributes needed for Key Stage 4 and beyond. As a department, we are aware that the secondary level can be the final experience of school geography; therefore, we aim to ensure all students leave with the essential and necessary geography skills needed for all further education and employment opportunities. The following aims and objectives relate directly to Imberhorne School and show our contribution as a department towards every student’s aspirations, learning, and achievement.

Geography seeks to develop a sense of place and helps students make sense of their surroundings and to gain a better appreciation and understanding of the variety of physical and human conditions on the Earth’s surface. The subject extends students’ interest and knowledge beyond their immediate experiences, using images and information to help them interpret about people and concepts that they acquire from media, internet and textbooks. Geography develops major skill areas: Map and fieldwork skills; cross-curricular skills such as ICT, Literacy and Numeracy; as well as an increasing awareness of the world around us and the idea of sustainability. We want students to become global citizens and show a keen awareness of the geography around them. Geography is everywhere and students at Imberhorne develop a keen awareness and appreciation of the geography around them.
