Geography is concerned with encouraging pupils to develop a curiosity about their world and the people within it alongside developing their understanding of diverse places, people, resources and environments. It gives pupils the opportunity to develop their knowledge of the location of globally significant places, including the physical and human characteristics if these places. Pupils are encouraged to explore their immediate environment and given new experiences to develop more global understanding, underpinned by skills in communication, independence and social interaction. Geographical vocabulary is introduced through a range of communication methods adapted to suit the pupils.
