At Langdale CE Primary School, our unique setting provides many opportunities for children to learn about their local area, have hands-on experiences of Physical Geography, as well as making comparisons with a diverse range of contrasting locations and people around the world. Our extensive school grounds help to enhance children’s opportunities to explore key aspects of Geography up close and in a hands-on manner. Further opportunities, such as workshops, visitors and through residential trips, allow pupils to experience different locations and draw comparisons with home. 

We believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Pupils are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Our Geography curriculum helps pupils to develop skills and knowledge, which can easily be transferred into other curriculum areas, as well as helping to promote their spiritual, cultural, social and moral development.

Respect for the local area and environment are a strong focus, which is further enhanced through our strong links with the local church. Pupils are encouraged to ask questions and seek answers through an understanding of others lived experiences and a wider understanding of the world. Links with charities and a focus on global citizenship helps to deepen the pupil’s understanding and knowledge on how to look after the world that we live in.  


Beech class used their navigational skills to plan and walk a route up Black Crag. We also learned how to purify water.

Peter Nutsford visited Langdale to share his adventures in East Africa with the children. We explored different tribes, animals and geographical features.

Matt Staniek visited Langdale to discuss the otters local to Cumbria and how we can help protect them.

'A high-quality Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with 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. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.’       National Curriculum 2014
