The Curriculum at Donnington Primary School
- At Donnington Primary School we believe that our pupils are entitled to a rich, varied and diverse curriculum which will enable them to learn and make connections using concrete, pictorial and abstract approaches to learning.
- We believe that all pupils at Donnington deserve to have access to texts that allow them to read widely and deeply, in order that they develop their fluency and understanding.
- Our teachers work closely together to ensure that there is progression in knowledge, skills and understanding in all subjects
- We believe that all pupils, irrespective of their background, world experiences and economic status, should be provided with a rich curriculum which is delivered confidently, preparing them for life and future employment.
- We believe our pupils have the right to a culturally diverse and inclusive education reflective of their local and nationally shared heritage and experiences
- We encourage our pupils to share their own unique cultures and life experiences with the aim of improving their cultural capital and that of the school community.
- We believe that our ‘SEND’ pupils are entitled to inclusive learning opportunities, through our curriculum, which is adapted to meet the needs of all learners.
- We will enable all SEND pupils, in our school, to have equal access to all learning experiences to ensure equality for all.
- We have chosen to use the ‘Cornerstones Curriculum’ to help us deliver an engaging and inspiring curriculum which incorporates a memorable experience, normally an educational visit, (subject to current COVID-19 restrictions) and key knowledge.
- We share our learning with the school community through class assemblies and displays.
- Donnington’s Five BEs underpin everything that we do.
