Dundonald Primary School 'Together we...Inspire, Believe, Achieve'


At Dundonald Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which endeavours to promote the intellectual, spiritual, physical, cultural and social development of each child within a caring environment. 

Teachers plan carefully to ensure continuity, progression, challenge, pace and enjoyment.  We place an emphasis on the core areas of learning:


  • Language and Literacy (Talking and Listening, Reading, Writing)
  • Mathematics and Numeracy 
  • The Arts (Art and Design, Music, Drama)
  • The World Around Us (Science, Geography, History)
  • Personal Development and Mutual Understanding
  • Physical Development and Movement
  • Using Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Religious Education 


Teaching staff are involved in the continuous curricular review. Year and subject co-ordinators ensure that the school schemes of work remain in line with the requirements of the Revised Curriculum.  The revisions to the curriculum aim to retain the best of current practice while seeking to give greater emphasis on skills, children's Personal Development and Mutual Understanding and the development of Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities.
