Geography Student Views

Children and young people can offer unique perspectives on what it is like to be a student at their school. At Boldon School, we value the views of our students, involving them in decision-making, helping to shape our curriculum, as well as facilitating a sense of empowerment and inclusion.

We have a whole-school commitment to listening to the views, wishes and experiences of all children and young people. It means placing value on what children and young people tell school staff about their experiences. This is of particular importance across each subject area. We try to promote meaningful opportunities to share their experiences, views and hopes about their school. To build a safe environment, better relationships across the whole school community and empower students with the knowledge that what they say is valued and will be listened to and considered.

We are proud to hear their views about our curriculum, teachers and the learning environment we create:

“Geography helps me development my skills, like maths skills when we studied tropical storms”


Year 9

“Geography is interesting as you can use your knowledge of real life situations and have fun coming up with solutions to problems happening around the world now.”


Year 10

“Geography allows you to learn about the place you live in, especially since we are in a coastal region we can learn how our coast was formed. We can learn how other countries are affected by natural processes such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions”.
