A message from The Executive Headteacher & the Headteacher
At Haseltine we aim to create a happy school where the learning atmosphere is relaxed and conducive to high attainment. We believe that children learn in many different ways so we provide opportunities for them to explore, create, research, and investigate. It’s important that they find out for themselves rather than being told.
We believe that every child should learn the skills for life long learning and be supported to develop as good citizens who contribute fully to their community.
For the children to reach their full potential we need to work in partnership with you as parents, carers and colleagues. Enabling children to be the best learners they can be is important for their life chances.
Our school works in partnership with Fairlawn Primary School. Staff, governors and children work together to harness each other’s strengths and expertise so that children are offered the best possible education.
We welcome you to our lovely school so you can see for yourself how we learn together. Please contact the school office to make a time to visit. We will be delighted to share our school with you.
What a busy year we are having! There have been so many exciting events over the last few weeks: Museum Night, Spring Music Festival Events, World Book Day, Family Assemblies, trips out and visitors in! We have also been raising money for various charities – including...read more
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”
“We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself”
“The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn”
“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere”
“Tell me and I forget.Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.

The Haseltine Tree
At Haseltine we know that every child is a success story; we also want every one of our children to become life long learners and the best citizens that they can be.
We have 3 core values here that feed into everything we do:
We also have our 5 core Learning to Learn skills that we feel are crucial for our children:
Alongside these 5 core skills are lots of other skills, aptitudes and qualities that our children, teachers and parents believe to be incredibly important. The tree represents all of these and underpins everything we believe at Haseltine School.
