Character Development is integral at Haslam Park. Our school thrives to promote the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of each pupil from the moment they enter and prepare them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. We foster the importance of good mental health and well-being amoung our children so that they can fulful their potential in school and in adult life. We actively promote good behaviour and character traits which is at the heart of our school values. These values include: Growth, Learning,  Resilience, Compassion , Ambition, Equity, Inclusivity,Exploration and Honesty.

Fortalice Fundraiser

International Volunteer Day 

Some of our children took part in National Volunteer Day by patrolling our local park, collecting rubbish. They were joined by Bolton Council who provided us with lots of equipment to continue our contribution to the wider community. Our children learnt about the value of volunteering and demonstrated great compassion and growth- two of our school values.

Jeans for Genes Day

Our children and adults took part in a charity fundraising event to rasie money for children with genetic conditions. We participated  by donating money to the charity in return for wearing jeans to school.

Reindeer Run

To celebrate Christmas the whole school engrossed themselves into a full day of learning all about the Christmas festival. Our children came to school in real Christmas spirt, dressed in their Christmas jumpers. Reception welcomed in their parents to our Christmas stay and play and enjoyed activities such as: card making, bauble decorating, Christmas arts and crafts and much more!  Reception then took part in a ‘Reindeer Run’ to raise money for Bolton Hospice- we raised a £140! Our children learnt about being charitable and how it makes a difference to other peoples lives. Our Children performed a carol concert to their parents, singing and dancing to Christmas songs. In true Christmas spirt, we then celebrated in the afternoon with a Christmas Party.
