“Our mission is for all pupils to achieve their personal best in a nurturing and spirited environment, becoming kind and ambitious members of their local and wider communities.”


Geography at Shardlow allows children to become:

  • Confident – children develop their long-term geographical skills and can write and talk confidently about the world and the people within it.
  • Independent – children can use their skills learnt in geography across other curriculum areas.
  • Motivated – children want to understand and learn more about the world around them.
  • Open-minded – children respect and embrace diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments.
  • Responsible and Respectful – children are respectful of the Earth and its inhabitants, and responsible in their treatment of the planet and those inhabiting it.


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.
