“ Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future” Michael Palin
Article 32 (child labour) Governments must protect children from economic exploitation and work that is dangerous or might harm their health, development or education.
‘We want our students to explore, experience and appreciate the diversity in the world, from the personal to the global and including the past, present and future.'
In today’s constantly changing society, it is becoming increasingly important for students to develop a range of skills that are transferable and adaptable in the global marketplace. The curriculum should inspire, challenge and support all learners to prepare them for the world that they live in, a world they will need to engage with and sustain in the future. Humanities offers a continually developing, coherent and aspirational curriculum that builds on students’ experiences and that supports all students in becoming successful, resilient, independent individuals who enjoy learning and make excellent progress. It is our intention to encourage students to become active and responsible citizens, confident and self-motivated learners, aware of personal, local, national and global perspectives. Humanities subjects promote ‘Thinking for Learning’ throughout lessons to support the departments ethos of making students resilient and independent learners. Humanities subjects uphold the schools commitment to the Rights Respecting School Award. Humanities subjects nurture students' abilities in safe and inspirational classrooms. The RRSA values are embedded into Humanities schemes of learning and support students in becoming responsible, happy, healthy and active citizens.
Geography develops skills and responsibilities as global citizens and students own impact on the world.
