The National Curriculum for Geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both
    terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and
    how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical
    features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial
    variation and change over time
  • are competent in geographical skills, for examples, collecting and analysing data.
