Here at St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, our principal aim is that children leave us with a wide range of happy and rich memories in Geography. Inspired by exciting experiences, driven through our curriculum vehicles, which enhance child’s awareness of their own abilities and strengths as a learner and their knowledge and understanding of their own locality and the wider world. We want children to have deep respect and love of their own locality and the wider world.
