Geographers investigate and interpret the places that make up our world. We want our children to become keen investigators of the world they live in focusing on places, different environments and  the space around them. Geography teaches our children essential knowledge about the world, their place in it whilst contributing to their personal development. It equips them with a unique range of specialised skills, develops a specifically geographical way of understanding, and examines important questions and issues that are essential for informed citizenship.


The document below explains the three I's- Intent, Implementation and Impact for Geography here at St. John's. 

Intent- Our aims of education and overarching curriculum design here at St. John’s- Why we do what we do!

Implementation- Our curriculum and what we offer our children- What we do and how we do it!

Impact- Has our intent impacted on our learners? Does what we do make a difference to our children?
