Objectives

Supporting young children take their first steps in education. Our school is at the very heart of the community. We have strong relationships with families in the local area. Children here are nurtured and supported to build their skills and progress in a supportive and fun environment.

All children are encouraged to reach their full potential, regardless of their starting points or additional needs/ At Carr, what matters above all else, is that our children are happy and enjoy their time with us. 

The team at Carr are supported by a board of governors who are a critical friend to the school. The board has a variety of experience, the common theme is that they expect the very best outcomes possible for every child that attends the school.

Activities

Our children have the opportunity to learn and develop in a modern building with an extensive outdoor area. We believe that children's learning is much wider than that defined in the National Curriculum, and look to enhance knowledge and confidence through visits and visitors, using our Forest School areas and outdoor shelters, cooking with the children in our kitchen area as well as teaching the children about the history and significance of the local area they live in.

Our Ofsted inspection in 2022 observed 

'Staff model the behaviours and attitudes they want pupils to have and pupils respond enthusiastically to these high expectations. Pupils work hard in their lessons and are keen to talk about their learning...

Pupils behave in a calm and orderly way. Adults talk to pupils with respect, kindness and a deep sense of care. Pupils speak to each other in the way in which adults speak to them. Staff work with skill and compassion to help pupils manage their behaviour.'
