"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."

Primary National Curriculum

Environmental change and sustainable development, social and cultural diversity, population change and migration, impacts of globalisation and economic growth and decline are issues which affect the future of everyone. At Penruddock Primary School,  Geography teaching has a crucial role in beginning to make pupils aware of these issues. 


In investigating such issues pupils develop a range of enquiry skills and techniques involving maps, visual images and ICT.  Fieldwork and outdoor education widen pupil’s experiences and contribute to pupil’s social and personal development. Whenever possible we aim to use real cross curricular experiences to enhance our geography teaching and enable pupils to place their learning into a real-life context. In 2018, pupils will be working with Prism Arts and Cumbria Wildlife Trust on an exciting project celebrating an area of natural beauty at Eycott Hill nature reserve near school which aims to develop the site and enable disabled people, young people and older people to engage in the arts.
