Geography Lead Teacher in school is Mrs Groark
The Geography element of our school curriculum is to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should 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.
We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Seaham so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.
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. We want our children to gain confidence and 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.
