At Starbank School, our pupils develop a deep understanding of their locality and gain an appreciation for their diverse community, country and world. Through an ambitious and sequenced learning approach, pupils focus on four key areas: locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skill and fieldwork.
The teaching sequence allows our pupils to build upon their subject specific vocabulary, knowledge and skills which is then applied to subject areas across the whole curriculum. Through engaging topics, our children are invited to become naturally curious; they are encouraged to question, investigate and engage with a range of relevant geographical issues that may have an impact on their lives and futures. This approach assists Starbank pupils to become global citizens who understand the delicate balance between physical processes, our natural environments and the impact of human influences.
