Ashperton Primary Academy

Welcome toAshperton Primary Academy




Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives; to promote the children’s interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. We achieve this by ensuring that students are exposed to quality first teaching, investigating and high quality fieldwork as well as links with other schools to strengthen their cultural understanding.


At Ashperton Primary Academy, We believe that high quality geography teaching offers our children the foundations for a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. The geography curriculum at Ashperton is designed to be progressive; knowledge rich - equipping and building on skills. Alongside this, we carefully link our key school drivers, the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) into our planning. We believe, the way our curriculum is designed, along with our study, recall, recall, recall system, allows our children to become passionate geographers that know more, remember more and understand more. We hope to give them the knowledge and skills to make an educated and positive impact on the world that they learn about.


Our curriculum is ambitious for all and alongside the national curriculum aims to:

  • 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
    • 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

We expect our children to make links to the 17 SDGs. Seventeen goals suggested by the UN and adopted by our government, “as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.  The SDGs address the interconnected global challenges we face and are designed to leave no one behind. 

We hope to teach our children about the world we live in and want to continue to live in, by teaching them how to do so in a sustainable and considered manner. We hope by teaming our curriculum with the SDG we will educate our children to consider:

  • Sustainability: develop our children’s basic values, attitudes and habits towards sustainability. Enable them to pick up on cultural messages about wealth and inequality; cultural diversity; wise use of resources and gender equality.
  • Geographical and science links:  particularly relating to environmental issues
  • Open mindedness to thinking globally and to being diverse about all things
  • Engaging in stimulating dialogue and voicing their ideas and opinions about inter connections: Learning about concrete actions that can be taken in favour of the environment.
  • Being engaged in the world that they live in.
