Class names reflect the rhubarb heritage of Carlton village

The nature of the school’s site

Carlton Primary is housed on one site which consists of both hard play area and small grassed bank area. We have an outdoor adventure trail and more recently built outdoor hard play court. There is a newly formed gardening area and also a wildlife learning area.

The building is an amalgamation of structures dating back to 1875 and includes a new hall and 2 classrooms (built in 2009) and a portacabin for on site child care and community use, built in April 2010. A new staff wing was created in May 2010 and an office extension April 2012. In June 2015, a new classroom was built to create enhanced provision for our Y5/6 children. During the last 3 years the older parts of the school have had replacement roofs, heating systems, windows, doors and toilets.

Curriculum Description

Foundation Stage – children in  Upper Foundation (Reception full time) are split into two small classes (22 and 23).  Each class has its own  teacher.   Lower Foundation (part time nursery) are taught as one class with their own teacher. All children are encouraged to work across the three indoor classrooms and the outdoor classroom which together form our Foundation Unit.

Key Stage 1 – children are arranged in three classes in date of birth order, but frequently work across the key stage ( e.g. there are 6 differentiated daily phonic groups) Planning is cross curricular although numeracy is mainly taught as a discrete subject.

Key Stage 2 – children are arranged in six classes in date of birth order, but frequently work and plan in Lower KS2 ( Y3/4) and Upper KS2 (5/6).  Planning is cross curricular although numeracy is mainly taught as a discreet subject.

Cross Age Phase Initiatives- Upper Foundation Stage children and Year 3 children are paired as Learning Partners. On Friday afternoons KS2 work in mixed age creative pastoral family house groups to support their speaking and listening skills.

Phonics and Reading – Read Write Inc phonic scheme is introduced on entry to school and taught intensively through all its phases.   We have recently invested in a new reading scheme 'Bugclub', which children access from their Reception year. This is enhanced by an online reading world, where children earn points as they read and answer comprehension questions.  Also,  all children from ages 3 to 11, regularly use our home lending library which has recently been enhanced and replenished to include an extensive selection of both fiction and non fiction books.
