At West Rise, we grow Explorers who…


  • Know how to analyse the world to find patterns - 

know where things are, why they are there, and how they develop and change over time.

  • can link facts together through geographical thought -

can relate the local and the global, the near and far, the physical and the human, people and environments, the economic and the social, time and distance.

  • Understand the methods geographers use to create valuable insights about the world.

We encourage our children to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, and their place in it. 

Children develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other subjects.

They  progress from recognising and identifying to critiquing and hypothesising.
