Welcome to our school website; please feel free to explore. We are delighted that you have taken the time to find out something about our school.
At Carrfield Primary Academy we seek to create a happy, positive and caring working environment where children are valued, both academically and socially. Our aim is to ensure that every child in our care reaches their full potential and experiences a broad, balanced and creative curriculum. We endeavour to produce lifelong learners who will relish the challenges that our rapidly changing world has to offer.
Carrfield Primary Academy has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where every child is valued. All the staff, parents, governors are committed to working together to ensure every child reaches their potential.
We have high hopes and aspirations for our children and we are continuously adapting and redesigning our curriculum to ensure that we interest all of our children and involve them as fully as possible in their learning. We want our children to be excited about coming to school and to love learning; to be motivated, enthusiastic, and challenged; to know that success is in each and every one of them and comes as a result of their own effort: this is paramount. We endeavour to provide our children with the belief that they can improve and learn, and to be delighted and proud of their many achievements.
We believe however, that in order for children to achieve their best, there needs to be a really positive co-operation between home and school. We really value the relationships that exist between home and school and seek to involve the parents and carers as much as possible, not just in their child’s education, but in the work of the school in general.
We are delighted to be part of the Astrea Academy Trust; enabling individual academies to flourish and with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration.
In 2018-2019, it was another fantastic year at Carrfield Primary School with continued improvements in our end-of-year outcomes:
- The percentage of KS2 children achieving the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths increased for the third successive year.
- The percentage of KS2 children achieving the expected standard in Writing remained in line with the national average; Maths improved again and was above the national average.
- Our Early Years Good Level of Development percentage remains consistently above the national average.
- All KS1 outcomes in Reading, Writing and Maths were above or in line with the national average.
- Our Year 1 Phonics results remained well above national average with 89% of children achieving the expected standards.
- The progress and attainment of children with SEND continued to improve and remains above the national average for children with SEND.
We would like to thank all our fantastic children and staff for their hard work in securing these results, as well as our parents and carers for their support.
However, as part of the Astrea Academy Trust, school prides itself on being about much more than results. The Astrea Promise, launched in 2017-18, continued to develop with Carrfield taking the initiative with a number of amazing trips and experiences that continue our aim to “inspire beyond measure”. Building on our REACH dispositions (Resilience, Empathy, Aspiration, Contribution and Happiness), our children took part in events as varied as the Year 6 France residential, lots of working in the local community across school, the Y4/5 London trip and the annual sleepover to name just a few. In July 2019, we also held our first-ever Astrea Promise awards ceremony where children in Year 2, 4 and 6 were presented with their badges and certificates for completing their stage of the Promise. As well as looking forward to planning for the next awards in July 2020, we already have a number of exciting events/trips planned for 2019-20 as we continue our commitment to inspiring beyond measure.
