'The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exist across continents."

Barack Obama



At Bramingham, we aim for a high-quality geography curriculum which should inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our teaching should equip children with geographical skills, knowledge and understanding, both within the classroom and through fieldwork and educational visits.


In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in geography, we implement the National Curriculum in a way that is progressive throughout the 7-year journey at Bramingham. The children will build upon previous learning to develop their understanding, not only of the diverse people, places, resources and physical and human environments, but also of the Earth’s physical processes and how the Earth has changed over time. Geographical skills will be developed through lessons in school, as well as enrichment activities throughout the children’s time at Bramingham.


We aim for children to gain an understanding of contextual knowledge of the world, understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features and how these change over time, and a competency in geographical skills. By the end of the time at Bramingham, we aim for all children to have curiosity about the world and its people, which will remain for the rest of their lives.
