Geography 2021 - 2022
“The study of Geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It is about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exist across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divided and bring people together.” - Barack Obama
We are proud to have been awarded the national Geography Award at Silver level showing our commitment to providing high quality geography education.
The Primary Geography Quality Mark is seen as a key strategy for raising the quality of Geography in Primary schools. Over the past year, everyone at Boundary has made a contribution to achieving our first Geography Mark and we are very proud to achieve the Silver Award.
The Geographical Association states the following about schools who have been awarded the mark:
‘The teachers in these schools ensure that their planning, policies and practice maximise pupil learning and are not afraid to take risks, innovate and challenge to achieve progress in geography. Key threads through the curriculum are intercultural understanding, local fieldwork, environmental issues, critical thinking and sustainability. These are explored in a variety of places across the world from local to global. The schools use creative approaches to stimulate learning and place high value on using real-life issues to promote understanding.’
Here at Boundary our children are curious and inquisitive about their immediate and wider world and creative in the way they think. Through exciting practical lessons, an engaging and well planned progressive curriculum and fieldwork opportunities, they have good 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. Our children enjoy geography lessons and they are always keen to find out more about the world they live in.
