“In our changing world, nothing changes more than geography” – Pearl S Buck


“Geography explains the past, illuminates the present and prepares us for the future. What could be more important than that?” - Michael Palin

Geography Vision Statement

Developing fascination and wonder about people and places and allowing tomorrow’s global citizens to thrive and take on the world.


At Botley Primary School, pupils will follow a geography curriculum which inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, that will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives. Children will develop knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, as well as developing their understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.


We want our children to gain confidence and have practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. By revisiting these areas of learning regularly, children will remember more, know more and understand more.
