Head of Lower School
Welcome to Haileybury Almaty Lower School where we use the U.K. National Curriculum and adapt it to make the units of work relevant to our students and location therefore developing a tailor-made Haileybury Curriculum. Our maximum class size of 22, combined with our professional and well qualified teaching staff allows us to pursue high standards of academic excellence. We have Teaching Assistants in every class, specialist teachers in P.E, Music, Art and Languages and also a thriving EAL (English as an Additional Language) department.
Our high expectations are supported by the Haileybury Habits, helping our pupils to be resilient, resourceful, courageous, inquisitive, organized, and reflective. There is a strong emphasis on pupils having a positive attitude to learning and displaying these "habits" in all that they do. A full Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) programme allows pupils a range of opportunities to experience new things and develop a range of new skills outside of the classroom.
I encourage you to take the time to explore the Firefly parent portal, the lower school pages, the specific year group pages which will support your child's learning and your child's individual page. The specific year group pages will provide information and links to support your child's learning as well as supporting school to home communication. I hope you find the parent portal very useful.


We follow an adapted version of the English National Curriculum throughout the Lower School. We provide a broad curriculum which includes English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Computing, and PSHE taught by the class teacher. Further to this, pupils are taught by specialist teachers in P.E, Music, Art and Kazakh. In Key Stage 2, pupils have the opportunity to learn a foreign language, with a choice of Russian, French or Mandarin.

Our curriculum is underpinned by the Haileybury Habits of being Inquisitive, Reflective, Resourceful, Courageous, Organised and Resilient. These "Habits" underpin the knowledge of what the pupils learn by ensuring they develop life-long learning skills. Curriculum maps are available on each year group page, explaining the objectives covered during each term.

All lessons at Haileybury Almaty are taught in English, with the exception of Kazakh and modern foreign languages. Pupils are supported in their acquisition of English from the moment they join the school in Reception, where the curriculum is designed to allow pupils maximum opportunities to communicate effectively in English.

Throughout the Lower School we also have extra support from additional teachers to provide specific language interventions. Our curriculum is strengthened by the inclusion of many curriculum enrichment events such as Poetry Week, Book Week, Mad Maths Morning, Science Week and Humanities Day — to name a few!. These events provide opportunities for the pupils to apply their learning beyond the classroom in a fun and engaging way.

Haileybury Astana и Haileybury Almaty поддерживают благополучие и защиту молодежи. В рамках процесса найма новых сотрудников мы требуем от всех заявителей прохождения полицейских проверок и проверки DBS U.K. , также применяя в работе четкие протоколы по мерам защиты и безопасности.
