At St. Edward’s Academy Cheddleton, we aim to motivate and inspire children in their Geographical knowledge through clearly sequenced schemes of learning so they develop a love of the world they live in. We aim to develop a curiosity and fascination about their environment and help them to enjoy learning about different local, national and global communities and the relationships between people and their landscapes.
Through our curriculum, we equip children to be Global Citizens: to develop an awareness of the wider world and their place within it, encourage them to take an active role in the local community and work with others to make our planet more peaceful, sustainable and fairer.
We aim for our children to become passionate about the planet and become actively involved in protecting the environment. Children need to be taught about the complexity of the world they live in. Geography is key to this as it ensures children understand the world around them, its environments, places near and far, and the processes that create and affect them.
