Geography

Why is Geography important?

Geography helps us to make sense of the world around us, better understand the places we live in, learn about and visit, why they matter and how they are connected to a globalised world.

Through geography, we encounter different societies and cultures and learn to appreciate the incredible diversity of landscapes and peoples.

In geography, we face questions of what it means to live sustainably in an interdependent world and learn to value and care for the planet and all its inhabitants.

How do we assess and monitor Geography?

 

At LPS, assessment and monitoring of our subjects is used rigorously to gain an accurate understanding of individual children's progression and to identify any barriers for learning. Staff are well trained in assessing continuously throughout a topic, as well as using summative assessments to inform future planning and teaching.   Subject leaders use a range of monitoring techniques to ensure high impact and  quality of teaching in order to ensure all children are making progress.
