Dear pupils and parents and welcome visitors, 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Carlton Primary School’s website. We hope that it gives you a flavour of the quality, energy, care and creativity of our school.

Carlton Primary School is a friendly and caring school, where high expectations, positive praise and celebration of achievements and effort all really matter. We strive for the very best and are committed to providing a first-class experience for the children of our school. We pride ourselves on the strength and warmth of our pastoral care and strong relationships between everyone who is part of our school: children; parents; governors; staff; community members.  We promote our Carlton Skill Set throughout our curriculum; these are our 8 characteristics of learning, with each having its very own superhero to represent it! 

On the 1st of January 2021 we officially converted to an academy and are thrilled to now be part of Selby Educational Trust (SET). This partnership sees us working positively, closely and collaboratively with SET colleagues and Selby CP School. As part of our conversion we changed our name from Carlton in Snaith Community Primary to simply Carlton Primary School. Through SET we will continue to improve whilst keeping our ethos and building on our many strengths

We are very proud of our children, our school and our community. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to prepare our children to live in a constantly changing and culturally diverse world.

We believe that both adults and children should learn new things each day and that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. We are aspirational for our pupils and aim to give them enjoyable experiences that will foster a lifelong love of learning. We offer and provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum. We are reflective school and are always aiming to improve further.

We hope that our website gives you a sense of what we have to offer. If you find out more, please get in touch and arrange to come and see us – we would love to meet you.

Yours faithfully

Jon Watson
