At New City, we aim to deliver a high-quality geography curriculum which ignites a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, and an understanding of the role that we all play in ensuring the future well-being of our planet. We want our pupils to gain an extensive knowledge of diverse places, the people who live there and the human and physical processes that occur. Equipped with this knowledge, they should develop a deep understanding of the interaction between human and physical environments and the impact this has had, and continues to have, on the Earth. Ultimately, our aim is to produce pupils who are wholly committed to the notion of Global Citizenship.
As an integral part of ensuring this knowledge and understanding, each year group has an opportunity to carry out fieldwork through which we aim to develop essential geographical skills, which will enable pupils to collect data , interpret a range of sources of geographical information and communicate findings in a variety of ways.
As part of our focus on global citizenship, we have a group of Eco-warriors who regularly meet to explore how we, as a school, can help ensure the well-being of the planet for future generations. As part of the Eco-Schools' program, we have made and planted seed balls to encourage biodiversity and participated in the Great British Spring Clean through litter picking in the local area.
