Evendons Curriculum Vision:
Evendons Primary school is a unique and vibrant learning environment where academic excellence in English and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects partner effectively with passion and creativity.
The core thread running through the curriculum are our values of Trust, Respect, Courage, Love, Forgiveness, Resilience and Fairness and the school motto ‘Kindness Matters’.
Evendons delivers a broad curriculum which is enriched by learning experiences and engagement and partnership with the local community. We believe in Experiential learning , children “learn by doing” and by reflecting on their experiences. Contextualising children’s learning so that they learn from real life fosters a spirit of inquiry and purpose – situating learning, making it challenging, memorable and purposeful. The curriculum drives all aspects of the school forward ensuring all children thrive and find meaning and fulfilment in their school life.
Every child is an individual. Our role is to nurture pupils’ potential through a personalised approach to learning. Evendons children are happy, independent, confident all-rounders. We encourage a ‘be interested and be interesting’ attitude in children and staff alike. We don’t just teach; we want our pupils to have a passion to learn. Our focus is on all pupils, regardless of background or academic ability, focusing on pupils with Special Educational Needs as well as those who are more-able.
The school offers a range of extra-curricular clubs to pupils in order to:
- Add breadth to the curriculum
- Provide children with access to subjects, sports and activities they might not normally be able to access
- Provide children with ‘tasters’ which they may enjoy or demonstrate and aptitude for and may pursue beyond school
