As Geographers at Lingdale Primary School, our children will develop the skills to navigate and engage with the world they live in. We aspire to teach them about their home, address, school, village and locality. They will learn about the impact that human and physical geography has and will continue to have on their local area. We want them to know “What is on their doorstep?” as well as having an appreciation of life in other parts of the UK and other cultures around the world- with settlement being at the heart of the curriculum. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Lingdale and The North East so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special.

We also strive to ensure our pupils have a strong sense of curiosity and fascination about the world around them and its people. Our aim is for our children to know their place in the world through locational knowledge and how this relates to the wider world. The Geography curriculum at Lingdale is enriched with many outdoor experiences both near and far. We also want our children to know “What is on the doorstep of others in the UK and in other continents?” Geographical skills and fieldwork are woven into lessons and include many transferable skills, such as research, observation, measurement and recording.

It is imperative that our young people grow up respecting the local, national and international environment. They will develop an understanding of how the Earth is changing rapidly and the impact humans are having on the planet. We endeavour to prepare them for the next stage in their learning journey by ensuring they have an understanding of what being a global citizen means – at best encouraging them to take an active role in their community and work alongside others to make our planet more sustainable.
