Geography Gold Mark
|‘A truly comprehensive curriculum which showcases the units of work studied and that they are sequenced from EYFS to Year 6 to ensure clear opportunities to build on prior learning and skill development against the school’s skill grids.’ the words of the Geographical Association who awarded Ranelagh the gold mark Gold for the Primary Geography Quality Mark , the highest distinction.Praise was given for the clear opportunities children have to build and challenge their knowledge about their local environment, mentioning children studying land use in urban and rural areas and developing this enquiry to compare their findings with land use in the local area
It was vociferously agreed that the evidence proved that the children were challenged, they developed analytical skills and teachers constantly moved their learning forward. It was evident that children see themselves as geographers and use the language of geography to show this.
Children leave Ranelagh with incredibly strong knowledge of location and place; human and physical geography and are given many opportunities to develop their fieldwork skills.
A huge congratulations to Miss De Souza, Ranelagh’s Geography Lead, for ensuring that Geography is an important subject within Ranelagh's very strong curriculum.
‘Congratulations on achieving your well-deserved Gold Award.’
