Curriculum Rationale

The pupils who attend Evergreen have a diverse and often complex range of special educational needs and disabilities. Each pupil presents with a unique profile of learning characteristics.

With this in mind we have developed a curriculum model to meet the diverse and ever-changing needs of our pupils. We offer an inclusive, personalised and tailored curriculum for all our pupils. With a curriculum designed to be adaptable for each individual, we enable our pupils to travel along their own learning pathway. 

We have a strong focus on experiential learning to develop knowledge & understanding through first-hand practical experiences.
We believe this promotes independent enquiry and unique problem-solving methods.

These "drivers" underpin all aspects of teaching and learning throughout school.

They enable our pupils to become:

successful pupils who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.

confident individuals who can live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.

responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
