"Geography, underpins a lifelong 'conversation' about the earth as the home of humankind."
We believe that a high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The teaching at St James, will equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
At St James, we lay the foundation for a progressively deepening knowledge and understanding of geography that will be useful to children in later life. The embedding of geographical skills including map work and field work allows our children to gain further understanding and brings more meaning to the world in which they live.
We also try to provide a range of enriching activities, where possible, such as fieldwork and visits.
