CHPS ROAD SAFETY TEAM
Please see below an article on the Milton Keynes website.
The Council’s Road Safety Team has been working with pupils and teachers at Caroline Haslett School in Shenley Lodge to improve safety outside the school. Parking around the school at pick up and drop off times is an issue so a number of measures were undertaken to raise awareness of safety to ensure that parents ‘Park Smart’ when coming to the school. The road has been resurfaced, double yellow lines and ‘School - Keep Clear’ letters have been repainted and ‘Park Smart’ banners were put up outside the school.
The school also held an assembly on road safety and leaflets were sent home to parents advising where and how they can park safely at the school. The school has also recruited junior road safety officers from pupils in years five and six, who have already undertaken an observation outside the school with the Road Safety Officer to talk to parents who have parked dangerously or inconsiderately. Cllr Liz Gifford, Cabinet Member for Public Realm said “Parking dangerously or inconsiderately around a school at drop off and pick up times not only endangers road users, particularly pedestrians crossing the road, it also creates stress for all concerned.” “Walking, cycling or scooting to school is a much more fun, healthy and environmentally friendly way to get to and from school.”

WELCOME TO CAROLINE HASLETT SCHOOL
Caroline Haslett Primary School is a successful school which has demonstrated consistently high standards for a number of years. It operates in a culture where expectations are high,learning is exciting and children's individuality is valued. It is very inclusive and committed to helping children achieve their full potential.
We opened in 1992 as a combined school for 4 to 12 year olds, and are now a primary school for 4 to 11 year olds serving Shenley Lodge and the eastern part of Shenley Brook End. Accommodation includes the main open-plan building (FS to Y4), a classroom of the future- The Mekon building ( Y5 & Y6 ) and a specialist teaching block (Library, Food Technology and The Faraday Club).
With a roll of 436, we are a two-form entry school with class sizes between 30 and 32. We have a department for 10 children with speech and language statements of special educational needs, integrated into our mainstream classes receiving additional support in line with their statements. The school supports children at every stage of the special needs register through specialist teaching advice and a high level of teaching assistant support.
At the end of Y6 most children transfer to either Denbigh or Shenley Brook End secondary schools, with a small number going to other schools in MK. We have good links with playgroups in the area and there are strong sporting and staff development links with our nearby schools.
We believe that praise and a positive, can-do approach helps all to achieve their best. We operate this within a framework of high and clear expectations, resulting in an ethos where all are valued and achievement is recognised. We offer a broad range of activities within and beyond the school day. The on-site Faraday club provides before and after school care together with holiday play scheme provision.
We value staff expertise and professional development. We are committed to a policy of promotion from within where possible. Each class has an interactive whiteboard, each teacher a MacBook and there is an airport network throughout school, enabling ICT to support the entire curriculum.
There is a well-established and enthusiastic governing body which supports the school strongly. Governors hold regular 'tea parties' with the children to listen to their views about their school.
