At Woodcote Primary school, we aspire to give children a high-quality geographical education. Our intent is to inspire pupils to become fascinated and curious about the world and its people. As geographers, they will be able to develop their knowledge of significant places and locations, locally, nationally and globally. We aim to challenge pupils and provide an environment in which they can thrive from their learning and the challenges it produces. 

Geography is taught through the IPC scheme which enables children to approach learning by developing the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to confidently face the world of tomorrow. Through the IPC units, teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and both natural and human environments.

We have successfully integrated the IPC with the National Curriculum to ensure our pupils meet statutory requirements in a creative and stimulating way. When planning for the IPC, teachers adapt the units of work to create termly topics that are inclusive and relevant to our pupil’s everyday lives and cater to their specific interests. 

At Woodcote Primary, Geography enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Primary and also to their further education and beyond. As the children work their way through the school, their knowledge and skills develop in a progressive manner, allowing them to build on and broaden their prior learning.

We want the children to see Geography not just as written resources, maps and atlases, but as a way of exploring the amazing things around them. Wherever possible, our Geography curriculum is creative and enhanced by trips and visitors, as these bring the curriculum alive to our children and create lifelong memorable experiences
