Sports Day 2021
Over the last two days, we have been holding our sports days. On Thursday the 8th, years 1, 3 and 6 participated. The children had a wonderful time and we have posted a video of the day for everyone to view.
Friday the 9th was the turn of Foundation and years 2, 4 and 5.
Although it was a shame that parents were unable to attend, we were so pleased to see the children having such a good time. Well done to all of them for making both days great fun. The staff had a lovely time too.
You will find out who the winners were at the end of the video.

For those parents who were unable to attend, a recording of the video is available to view below. The topic on 7th July was Relationship Education Resources. This video will be posted next week.
Science Week - 2021
The children were extremely busy during science week and carried out some fantastic experiments.
The presentation below shows examples and photographs of the great work the children have done.
Due to Covid restrictions, we will be unable to hold open days for 2021 prospective parents. To provide parents with an overview of our school, we have put together a virtual tour. Also included is an information booklet which should answer any questions you may have. Please click the link to open the document.
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 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.
Caroline Haslett Primary School works in partnership with the Tommy Flowers SCITT, an outstanding (Ofsted, Dec 17) provider of primary and secondary teacher training in Milton Keynes. As a partnership school, we support Tommy Flowers SCITT trainees to become qualified teachers. If you are interested in becoming a teacher, please follow the link to the Tommy Flowers SCITT website for further details. www.tommyflowersscitt.co.uk..
