At Bayton CE Primary we shape our Geography curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for Geography; providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensuring the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for the children to develop a love for geography.


At Bayton CE Primary we believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at Bayton CE Primary enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Bayton CE Primary and also to their further education and beyond.


Teaching and Learning should show progression across all key stages within the strands of Geography through the use of the geography progression of skills tracker. Children have access to key language and meanings on display bubbles in order to understand and readily apply to their written, mathematical and verbal communication of their skills. Children will use a range of secondary resources to develop their knowledge and understanding that is integral to their learning. Staff will refer to the progression document to ensure that pupils are accessing and learning ARE skills and knowledge that will enthuse and help them to understand more securely at the appropriate level. Children will become more aware of their local environment and as they progress through their geographical education. Where applicable children will take part in visits and have visitors as part of the encompassing creative curriculum to develop their learning and ensure it is memorable.


All children will achieve age related expectations in Geography at the end of their cohort year.

All children will retain knowledge that is pertinent to geography with a real life context.

All children will understand how geography ‘happens’ in their local area.

All children will begin to understand their wider world and the implications that we as citizens have on it.

All children will work collaboratively to solve problems and explain the processes that they have taken/observed within a real life context.

All children will act as good citizens within their local community.


At the end of each key stage, the children’s learning is assessed against the age-related expectation on our geography tracker every term. This is then tracked by our subject Leader Miss Platt. This assessment informs planning and differentiation within lessons.
