Home Learning via Microsoft Teams
In the event of class bubble closure(s) or lockdown, Carrfield will offer a remote learning provision. This can be viewed below:
Children will need to access Microsoft Teams using the username and password given to your child by the school by clicking here. From here, you can click the orange Sign In button and follow the instructions.
Once your child has signed in to their account, click the Microsoft Teams icon. If your child is using a desktop PC or a laptop, we recommend downloading the Microsoft Teams app when it offers you the chance to.
Alternatively, if your child is using a tablet or smartphone, we would recommend downloading the Teams app from the App Store or the Google Play store.
School will also make use of Nearpod, SeeSaw and Purple Mash for some aspects of your child’s online learning. We will continually review the apps/programs we use.
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.
School Values & Ethos
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.
Should you have any queries or general enquiries, please contact Mrs. Katie Adamski (Principal & Safeguarding Lead), Mr. Andy Morton (Vice Principal & Safeguarding Deputy) or Miss Laura Booth (Office Manager) in the first instance on 01709 893121. Should you have any concerns around Safeguarding, you may also contact Mrs. Cheryl Ramsbottom (Families and Safeguarding Officer) on the same number.
Communication with our parents/carers is vital in the current COVID situation; we need to ensure that all our routines are as clearly communicated as possible.
