Carr Hill is taking part in National Walk to School Week. We feel it is important to encourage our children to walk to school whenever possible



Each class is tracking the way the children travel to school and rewarding children who walk with stickers (a different one to collect each day).


If you live too far away from school, or you need the car for work, parking a five minute walk away from school will reduce the congestion just outside school.  You’ll still get the health benefits and your child will receive their daily sticker!

SATs WEEK: 11 May – 15 May 2015

As part of our plans to make SATs week as calm as possible, we are inviting the Year 6 children to join the teachers for ‘Tea and Toast’ (also available hot chocolate or fruit juice) on the morning of the exams between 8.30 and 9 o’clock in the school dining hall.

We plan to gather the children together in the school dining room as soon as they arrive so that we are able to keep them calm and avoid any possible additional stress that could be caused by excited discussions in the playground.  Therefore, we would hope that the children will be able to arrive slightly earlier than they normally do so that they are able to avoid a last minute rush.

Arriving early will also allow us to check that all the children are present and have the necessary equipment ready for the start of the tests.  It is also our intention to use this time to help the children to start thinking about the strategies that we have taught them this year to achieve their full potential in the tasks.

Whilst we appreciate that not all of the children will be able to arrive at 8.30, they will be welcome to join us from the time that they do arrive at school.

Display Boards

Around school we have many display boards that celebrate some of the amazing work that the children produce. We thought that it would be nice if this work could be shared with those of you who do not get chance to come and visit the school on a regular basis. So HERE is a selection of the schools displaysClick on any image to see the full sized image.

Staff Reading

As part of the 2015 World Book Day activities various members of staff read extracts from some of their favourite books, the videos are available HERE.

I know that a child’s years at primary school are among the most important of his or her life. Here at Carr Hill, we want to provide education of the highest quality - education that provides the very best opportunities for your child.

I hope that this website will give you a sense of what Carr Hill stands for but at the same time, I know that this site alone cannot answer all your questions about us and I would encourage you to contact or visit our school.
