At Eton End, History is a tool of learning and communication which deals essentially with people and their development over a period of time. We believe it is vital to pupil’s understanding of the creation of the modern world. History enables pupils to concern themselves with the past, present and future and helps them to understand tradition, cultural norms, national identity and shared values. The skills children develop through the study of History are applicable to everyday living. Reflection upon the changes made in the past is encouraged to fully understand the world we know today.

At Eton End Geography is used to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, that is intended to remain with them for the rest of their lives. It enables pupils to understand the relationships between places, the human and physical processes that shape them, and the people who live in them. It is concerned with the past, present and future and helps pupils to make sense of the outside world. Geography is about seeing, doing, enquiring and experiencing.
During RE lessons children at Eton End study the major world religions, several of which are represented within our school. Children are encouraged to participate in events and assemblies which celebrate common religious festivals.
In lessons our children consider similarities between faiths as well as differences. The children are encouraged to explore their own feelings, experiences, spirituality, beliefs and worship practices. They regularly share their thoughts, emotions and opinions with their peers during discussion sessions.
