Caroline Haslett Primary School

Nil satis nisi optimum. Nothing but the best is good enough

We are outstanding

The Yr 6 children did a great job taking over the running of the school today. It gave the staff a chance to have a rest.


Ofsted Outstanding 

Hitting the ground learning’

Dear parents and carers, As you know the school underwent an Ofsted inspection on 25th & 26th June 2019.

The above quote came from one of the inspectors who was impressed with the learning he saw from the moment the children entered school at the beginning of the day.

The Staff and Governors are clearly ecstatic with the final judgement and overall outcome of the inspection. The report recognises that Caroline Haslett has dedicated and hardworking staff who inspire and nurture young minds in a stimulating, caring community. This makes our school a place to be proud of; a place where children learn and enjoy doing so.

Thank you, parents for being partners in all aspects of school life and supporting us to promote high standards of learning, behaviour and attitudes to enable every child to reach their full potential.

It is my intention to continue to drive improvements so that our school continues to offer the very best we can for the children in our care.

The full copy of the report is now available on our website and will be available online in a few days. If you would like us to provide you with a paper copy, please contact the school reception.

Well done to the team!


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 426, we are a two-form entry school with class sizes between 30 and 32. We have a department for 5 children who have EHCPs for the primary need of speech and language. These pupils are fully included in our mainstream classes where they receive additional support inline with their EHCP and Speech therapists targets. The school identifies pupils with SEN early and supports them with timely and evidence based interventions alongside 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.
