Geography Statement of Intent
Our intent at Parkdale is that every child: develops an understanding of what Geography is as a discipline and an enthusiasm for it; develops Geographical knowledge and skills to help them understand the world; develops positive values around the environment and sustainability and understands have they can affect positive change.
Our Geography skills and knowledge are largely drawn from the 2014 National Curriculum and are mapped into our three termly themes. There is a strong emphasis on environment and sustainability as we believe that this is key for the future of our children and it is something we hope to inspire a passion for in them.
