Welcome to Carrwood Primary School - a friendly, safe and fun school to be a part of. That's why we are so proud of our school and all of the children who come here.  Our children develop into confident learners and their introduction to reading, writing and numbers begins in a safe and secure learning environment, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Through play and exploration children are challenged to 'have a go' and through the support of the teachers and their fellow students they become children who are motivated to learn independently.

We regularly celebrate learning achievements so that your child feels proud of themselves and will be keen to tell you about all the exciting things that they have done each day.  The school day is varied and enriched with a variety of learning experiences.

Your child will be welcomed each day with a smile and we aim for every child to leave each day with a happy smile!


On Thursday 2nd March we celebrated World Book Day.

Our whole school theme was  ‘Bedtime Stories’.  We were able to come to school in fancy dress either as a character from one of our favourite bedtime story book or in our pyjamas.  Everyone got involved, children and teaching staff.  We all looked fantastic!!

Every class did book themed activities throughout the day and enjoyed Milk and Cookies nearer home time!

Thank you to everyone that took part to make this day amazing!!

Carrwood Primary School is taking part in Readathon.

Readathon is the UK's Sponsored Reading Event. Readathon does something amazing. It  gets children reading for fun through a sponsored read in school. The money raised provides children's hospitals with regular storyteller visits, plus a mobile bookcase jam-packed full of brand-new books, which are replenished every six weeks.

This is a chance for all the children at Carrwood to read lots of different types of books; comics, poetry, non-fiction books and even listen to stories.

For any more information visit www.readathon.org where there are many ideas for books, games and much more. Click to download the newsletter from Readathon


Our Year 6 entered a poetry competition for a chance to be involved in a poetry book.  We are so proud to see so many of our Year 6 children being accepted to be a part of the book.  The book will be on sale soon and you will be able to see your child’s work in print.  Well done Year 6!

This year we are having a really big push on the importance of reading. As well as us hearing your child read at school we'd like you to hear your child read at home on a regular basis. What is your favourite book at the moment and will it be the same at the end of the year?

We believe that reading is the root of happy and successful learning.  A confident reader can use their understanding of words to explore and engage with the world around them.  Our dedicated reading area, Roots, introduces children to stories.  From developing a love of books through stories our children are given the skills and confidence to learn in all areas of the primary curriculum.  We believe that children who feel confident in their use of words-reading and writing-are more engaged and better motivated in school.

Our children are introduced to a wide range of experiences through residential trips and learning opportunities outside of the classroom.  Our children are not afraid to ask questions as they are taught that their inquisitive nature is a life skill that will lead them to take ownership of their learning journey.

At Carrwood your child will be given a great start to their learning journey through school and life.
