It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Carleton Rode CEVA Primary School, a small school set in beautiful grounds within a village setting, which prides itself on being a supportive, nurturing environment where children and staff alike, are happy, positive, achievers.

Happy: Because we are all safe, inspired and empowered to be the best we can be.
Positive: Because we all work together, supporting each other with self-belief and self-motivation.
Achievers: Because we are determined to achieve what we set out to do and more.

Here at Carleton Rode we believe that all children, regardless of differences in need or background, deserve the opportunities to achieve their full potential. Children’s interests and experiences are important and including these stretches our children’s knowledge beyond the National Curriculum. Learning is enriched and embedded through use of our lovely outdoor environment and links with the local community, which not only supports development but also helps our children’s sense of well-being.

Our children are encouraged to be balanced, caring, open minded and reflective. We want them to become well rounded, confident, independent citizens who show respect for others and are able to contribute positively to the community, both locally and globally.

We are federated with Forncett St Peter CEVA Primary School and as a federation, we believe that every child is very important to us whatever their abilities or circumstances and we pride ourselves on knowing them all well as individuals whom we feel privileged to work with. 

Our federation’s ethos is founded on the belief that we should love our neighbour as we love ourselves and show this by treating others as we would like to be treated.  This belief is central to all we do in our learning communities and makes for two happy and harmonious schools where our children feel safe, settled and ready to learn and grow.

Choosing the right start to your child’s education is very important. We hope that the information on our website will be useful to you in making your decision. If you have any further queries, or would like to visit us, please contact the school to make an appointment.
