At Christopher Rawlins, we seek to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Children will explore topics on a local, national, and global scale, enabling them to recognise the diversity of human and physical geography around the world. They will develop the skills required to become confident geographers and be able to explain how aspects of geography are interconnected and change over time. Opportunities to apply their understanding of the world to real events and issues are central to developing the children as responsible and loving global citizens. We want the children to be fascinated about the world and the people in it. Their curiosity should last for the whole of their lives.
