Our Curriculum

The curriculum at Donington on Bain conforms with the National Curriculum 2014. The school uses the Cornerstones Curriculum. This is a creative and thematic approach to learning and ensures full coverage of the national curriculum. The curriculum is based upon Imaginative Learning Projects (ILP's). Each ILP begins with a memorable experience and is divided into four stages - Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. The children enjoy being able to link their learning to these motivating and exciting projects. It is our aim to enable each pupil to become an effective learner, building their confidence and independence with the motivation and resilience to achieve their potential.

The school also have subject focus weeks/fortnights. These target specific areas of the curriculum which we feel have not been met fully by the Cornerstones Curriculum.
