  Geography
 

At Beaudesert, the study of geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds.   It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem solving skills which will help prepare pupils for adult life. Geography is also a focus within the curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and future development. In studying geography, pupils encounter different societies and cultures. This should stimulate them to think about their place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.

 

At Beaudesert, our aim is to apply the school aims for pupils in a geographical context. It is summarised by five E words.

* EMPATHY

For people with different cultures and lifestyles based on informed interests in current events and a well deserved sense of place.

 

* ENQUIRY

* EXCELLENCE
