Here at Haveley Hey we are passionate about providing exciting learning opportunities to engage and inspire our children! We place children's rights at the heart of our curriculum, then combine the National Curriculum with 1st hand experiences and skills and knowledge. Please find our intent statement here
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 where appropriate and build on key skills and knowledge each year to meet the high expectations of this challenging new curriculum. As a Rights Respecting school, we are also committed to putting children's rights at the centre of our curriculum.
We have adapted our curriculum to support our school values and meet the needs of our children and the changing context of the community we serve. We introduce units with a memorable experience to engage the children and give them as many real life experiences as possible to give them hooks to hang their learning on, delivering the National Curriculum in a fun and exciting way.

In EYFS we link quality first texts to our topics and allow children to explore and learn through these.
Progression of Knowlegde and Skills
Subject leaders in all subjects have developed progression documents which set clear end points for each phase in school. The progression documents combine a mixture of disciplinary knowledge (skills based) and substantative knowlegde. They are organised into key concepts or 'big ideas' that children revisit throughout school . This supports children to transfer knowledge to long term memory and helps to provide children with a deeper understanding of each subject. Starting points from EYFS are added to progression documents to ensure that learning builds over time and that children are able to meet the end points.
