The intent of the Geography curriculum at Weald is to enable an in-depth understanding of the world around us and to develop a critical awareness of the issues of the day, whilst engaging in interesting opportunities to develop thinking skills and decision making faculties. We will explore ethical living so that students can make informed decisions and choices about how they live their lives in a careful and considered way. We will look at physical processes so that students can interpret landscapes and so will be able to apply this understanding throughout their lives, when travelling around the world with family or friends. We will investigate human behaviour so that they have a clear understanding and respect of cultures and people around the world that will last a lifetime. Weald Geographers will be confident to draw upon a wide variety of skills and understanding so that they can make a valuable contribution in the wider world as a responsible and knowledgeable citizen.
