Welcome to our website...we hope you will enjoy exploring life at Carr Head Primary.

At Carr Head Primary School we strive to provide pupils with an education which enables them to achieve their full potential. Targets of a challenging, yet realistic nature are set for each child. We also provide an atmosphere in which children feel secure and valued, with each child treated as an individual and encouraged to develop his or her own special talents. Good manners and behaviour are regarded as key elements in a balanced all round education which prepares children to take their place as responsible and contributive adults in an ever changing society.

The programmes of study are in line with the 2014 National Curriculum. They provide varied and interesting learning opportunities where children may develop their own interests within the structured framework.

A highly committed and professional staff work hard to ensure that the high standards for which Carr Head is recognised are maintained whilst at the same time delivering stimulating and engaging lessons which are relevant and in accordance with the children's abilities. During the 2017 OfSTED Inspection the school's Overall Effectiveness was graded Good. 

There is a strong, rich tradition of music in the school and children of all ages enjoy developing their choral and instrumental skills. Children's artistic abilities are encouraged and the very high standard of this work is on display for all to see.

Opportunities are provided for pupils to participate in an increasing range of extra curricular activities.

We operate an "open door" policy, and parents are always welcome to visit the school. The successful running of our school is very much dependent on a partnership and we regard parents as an integral part of this school.


Carr Head Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
