The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy (HHCP) was established in 2018 to extend the long-established work of IOE and the Helen Hamlyn Trust in primary and early years education.


The centre aims to enable children to realise their full potential through optimal teaching and learning. Our work includes critical analyses of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment policies in national curricula. 

We collaborate with a variety of partners, including professionals, parents and children, to create a lasting legacy in the field of primary and early years pedagogy. 

Our world-leading communications and engagement strategies help us to create resources for practitioners and policy makers to improve children’s education.
