Here at Haveley Hey we are passionate about providing exciting learning opportunities to engage and inspire our children!   

National Curriculum

Since the introduction of the new National Curriculum (2014), we have worked hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. We work in a cross curricular way and build on key skills each year to meet the high expectations of this challenging new curriculum.  As part of this work, we have decided to implement the Cornerstones Curriculum: a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.  To find out more about Curriculum changes, please visit  As a Rights Respecting school, we are also committed to putting children's rights at the centre of our curriculum. 


What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum, ensuring comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our curriculum is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. We aim to provide children with exciting trips, visits, visitors and hands on learning experiences to really bring their learning to life, developing their curiosity and encouraging them to be life-long learners.
We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to independently and collaboratively solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.

How it Works?

Children will progress through four stage of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to Cornerstones website:


EYFS- Key Texts

This year in EYFS, we have planned our curriculum around high quality key texts that the children will become immersed in.  We will use Talk 4 Writing to learn the texts and will have lots of opportunities to interact with the text in our play based learning.
