Geography is a significant part of The Arnewood School curriculum. We believe that pupils should have enhanced global awareness of the physical world as well as an understanding of their place within it and how they interact with that world. Our curriculum will inspire pupils to take an active role in their environment and encourage responsibility for their actions with the concept of sustainability and the importance of it in today’s world. We want to broaden their world by providing access to cultures and cultural understandings from around the world. Through the study of Geography students are encouraged to consider how the world and its many interconnections shape our environments. Students will develop skills in using examples on a variety of different scales (local, national and global), identifying patterns and processes, explaining the interconnectedness of a vast world, implementing key terms and vocabulary and thinking through geographical enquiry.
