Dauntsey Academy Primary School

Geography

At Dauntsey Academy Primary School, Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Pupils are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it.

The geography curriculum at Dauntsey Academy Primary School enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas, which are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is based on enquiry, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

Pupils will develop a sense of enquiry about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for secondary education and beyond.
