'Aiming High Together' in a Caring Christian Environment


Geography at Calow C of E Primary School has been designed to prepare our pupils, many of those who will live into the next century, for their futures. Through our coherent, progressive and rigorous curriculum, pupils develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary on personal, local, regional, national and global scales.  Our curriculum has identified the most relevant and meaningful aspects of the National Curriculum which are explored in depth through an enquiry-based scheme.
