Our curriculum uses an enquiry-led learning approach as our teaching pedagogy. It is widely agreed that stimulating higher order thinking skills, problem solving and creative thinking is the key to learning without limits.
We believe that all our children can benefit from the methods and styles of teaching that stimulate and start the development of those skills in a meaningful way. Our results are excellent and our children continue to do well after they leave our school.
They truly live and breathe our motto: Believe, Achieve, Succeed.
At Eversholt, we use the National Curriculum as a base for our content. We use drama, role play, art, and music to engage pupils creatively. We provide purposeful challenges which develop resilient learners who embrace experimentation and exploration.
Children leave us with exceptional standards, ready for their next phase of learning, but also with the creative and critical skills for thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, research and communication. They are resilient and self-motivated, and we instil in them a sense of aspiration and dedication to learning. At Eversholt, we are committed to a curriculum that promotes lifelong attitudes to learning and transferable skills for adulthood.
In the classroom, we provide opportunities for open-ended tasks with a focus on problem-solving, discussion, collaboration and imaginative thinking that leads to critical thinkers who can articulate their ideas through questioning, visualising, exploring, connecting and challenging.
Each class includes WoW days throughout the year to make learning both memorable and fun. These may involve dressing up, visitors to the school, an excursion away from school and where possible, we invite family members to join us too. Our alumni pupils often come back and tell us that they miss our WoW days and still remember them!
