Howletch Lane
Primary School


The children of Howletch Primary School will become Geographers who are curious and fascinated about the world its people. As children study they will gain an appreciation, deep knowledge and understanding of how diverse the world is; simultaneously they will develop an understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. Geography encourages children to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights. Through the teaching of geography children are motivated to find out about the physical world and this enables them to recognise the importance of sustainable development for the future of humankind. We also aim to provide the children with opportunities to work through the essential elements and concepts of Geography.  


In line with the 2014 National Curriculum: Geography Programme of Study, we promote a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will continue to develop throughout their lives. Our geography curriculum states the essential knowledge for the four key areas; place knowledge, locational knowledge, human and physical geography (including environmental knowledge) and geographical skills and fieldwork. The big concepts of geography promoted at Howletch Primary School are place, space, scale, interdependence, physical and human processes, environmental impact, sustainable development, cultural awareness, and cultural diversity.  


The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:   


  • Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes 
  • Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time   
  • Are competent in the geographical skills needed to: collect, analyse, and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.  
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)  
  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.   


At Howletch Primary School, we urge children to respect and care for their environment to sustain its future. With an exciting and positive learning environment we are committed to igniting the passion to travel to, see, support and experience different sights, cultures, and climates of the world.
