Primary Phase



To deliver the writing specific content of the geography programmes of study as set out in the national curriculum.


Through embedding the vocabulary and skills-based facets of geography into an understanding of their local, national and global environment.


For our pupils to:

  • Be aware of the world around them
  • Become more aware of their and others’ impact on geographical issues and ways that they are being addressed
  • Be able to apply learnt skills in real-life situations
  • Develop pupils’ geographical vocabulary

Progression and Sequencing 

Each year group have at least two geography drivers per year. 

To develop an understanding of their local, national and global environment, children study a range of countries, areas and continents throughout the curriculum. 


The knowledge we have outlined for each topic has been categorised using four key geographical concepts. 

These concepts are revisited in each topic with a geography driver and have been carefully planned out to ensure progression.
