“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 exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.” Barack Obama


It is our aim that all children at Church Lane Primary School and Nursery understand where they are in the world and how they are linked to other places. We wish to celebrate the similarities between ourselves and others, not only in our locality but across the world. Our local environment is studied in depth across the key stages and we enhance their learning by taking them on trips to study locations further afield. Geographical enquiry is carried out inside and outside the classroom, using maps, photographs and ICT.
