St. Helen's C.E. Primary School


Our geography curriculum is built around an understanding of, and a deep belief in, our Christian mission statement. We want children to realise that the miracle of this amazing world is because of God’s creation and that God gave us the world to live in and to take care of. We want children to have a deep sense of awe and wonder about the world, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Through appreciating the physical, natural world and an understanding of our role in its development, we will be following the Christian values of respect, trust, truthfulness and thankfulness. Through teaching and learning, we will encourage a gratitude towards the beauty of our world, an understanding of how precious our life is and a commitment and a deep obligation to follow Jesus’ footsteps by caring for this planet and the people who live in it.   


Our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Children investigate a range of places – both in Britain and abroad – to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Hollins Green, Glazebury, Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester, so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage, and what makes our local area unique and special. We are also developing the children’s ability to apply geographical skills to enable to confidently communicate their findings and geographical understanding to a range of audiences.


Through high quality teaching, we develop the following essential characteristics of geographers:

  • An excellent knowledge of where places are and what they are like, both in Britain and the wider world;
  • A comprehensive understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected;
  • An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary;
  • Fluency in complex, geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills, as well as effective presentation techniques;
  • The ability to reach clear conclusions and explain their findings;
  • Excellent fieldwork skills as well as other geographical aptitudes and techniques;
  • The ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current issues in society and the environment;
  • A genuine interest in the subject and a real sense of curiosity about the world and the people who live here.
