Geography Curriculum

Geography Intent at Trinity Croft.



The aim at Trinity Croft is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient and successful, life-long learners.


Our geography curriculum is designed to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.  It provides the opportunity for pupils to engage and develop their skills through exciting and engaging practical enquiries.  With cross curricular links to ensure pupils are able to see the subject in context of themselves and the lives of the community around them and wider world, developing their ideas of global citizenship.  We aim to equip 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. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.


Through the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum, we aim for our children to have high aspirations and to make an active and positive contribution to their school, their community and the wider society; now and in the future.


At Trinity Croft we will offer children an opportunity to grow through inspired learning ‘We understand Jesus to be the Word of God, the self-expression and self-giving of God, who relates to the whole of creation (John 1:1-5; Colossian 1:15-20; Ephesians 1:8-10)
