Vision Statement - 2017/18
“Know, locate, name,
explore, find out, be sensitive…”
At our academy, we aim to develop pupils’ interest and knowledge of
both their own surroundings (local area), the country they live in and
the wider world.
We believe that learning about the U.K. and its relationship with other
countries plays an important role in developing a sense of identity for
our pupils. Skills and knowledge gained and developed through

We believe it is important to provide our children with the
opportunities to use a range of investigative and problem-solving

of geographical processes and patterns.
Involving pupils in the process of enquiry helps them to ask relevant
geographical questions and help them to develop geographical skills,
particularly in map work and fieldwork.

but first of all, empathy about environmental problems in local and
global areas that we face nowadays, can help make our pupils choose the
right decision for looking after their world.
We encourage every single child to build this environmental awareness
and sensitiveness: by looking after our local environment we contribute
to the whole world. Let`s keep the world beautiful!
