A broad range of Geography topics is taught throughout the school. In Key Stages One and Two, our curriculum is based on the Rising Stars Geography programme, developed in association with the Geographical Association which covers the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. In EYFS, the curriculum follows the Statutory Framework for EYFS and is taught around class topics.
Our aim is that pupils are equipped with a solid foundation of enduring knowledge and skills in preparation for secondary education and beyond, in a competitive and fast-changing world.
"A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives”

We expect that the study of geography at Lacey Green will equip children with an understanding of diverse places, people, resources and environments around them. Through a knowledge-rich curriculum, our pupils will be able to build on prior learning about physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments. They will develop an understanding that the Earth’s features are interconnected and change over time and we will encourage an exploration of their own environment and challenge pupils to make connections between their local surroundings and that of contrasting settlements in different places in the world. Wherever, possible, we will use our local area and community to develop geographical skills and knowledge.
