We believe that an engaging and motivating Computing curriculum will enable our learners to be able to use a variety of knowledge and skills, which they are able to maintain throughout and after their time at our school. This key knowledge and skills includes using computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. This encompasses using technology to reach a wide audience and using different programs to create their work. It also involves making deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology.
Throughout each child’s time at Eversley, they will be building their knowledge of the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Most importantly, we strive to ensure that all Eversley children will become digitally literate and are able to use, express themselves and develop ideas through information and communication technology to help them in future life.
How do we ensure this happens at Eversley?
Each week, the children have access to our ICT suite, with Apple Mac computers and up to date programmes installed. By timetabling this in weekly, we are able to expose each child to technology they may need to use in the future and provide them with the resources to build on their learning. We also provide the children with access to iPads and ensure each classroom has an interactive whiteboard. Clevertouch boards are used in our classrooms meaning that teachers are able to engage children’s learning through the use of technology. The children also have access to different devices to enrich their learning, for example, BeeBots and cameras.

At Eversley Primary School, we recognise that children are musical and creative beings prior to their arrival at school. This development continues to grow and evolve through their experiences and education.
Our aim is for all children to leave Eversley Primary School appreciating music as a vital tool to every pupil’s development in order to foster self-esteem, self–motivation, self-belief and self-satisfaction.
“Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase self confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.” Music 2014 Curriculum
How is this achieved?
Each class has a weekly music lesson in the dedicated music room with a teacher who specialises in teaching music to primary aged children. The music room is resourced with many instruments which the children use each lesson. There are many termly performing projects where the whole class learn to play the recorder, and at a different time, learn to play the ukulele or work together learning a repertoire of songs for a concert. At other times, children explore music using the percussion instruments. As the children move through the school they become proficient at composing music using an iPad
