Welcome to Evendons Primary School, Wokingham’s first STEM focused primary school which opened in September 2014.
We are a caring community school focused on nurturing and inspiring children and adults through practical learning and embedding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in all that we do. Our aim is to equip children to flourish in life beyond Evendons.
Nurture, inspire, flourish.
At Evendons Primary School children and adults work in a holistic way by integrating spiritual, moral, aesthetic, physical, social, emotional and intellectual strands into our everyday lives and practice.
Children are supported to achieve high standards of self-discipline, a strong work ethic, effective social skills and an accomplished intellect.
We strongly encourage the children to be responsible for themselves: their conduct, their work; their time-keeping; their environment and their community. In order to engender this sense of responsibility, we constantly engage the children in matters relating to the running of the school, from educational matters to health and safety; from choosing which charities to support to managing the risks associated with a woodland setting and encountering potentially harmful plants and insects. The children expect to be involved and this is evident in the day-to-day, ad hoc conversations as you walk through school as well as in the formal school council meetings with their House Leaders. Our expectation is that the character traits we foment have a significant impact on their learning.
