Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents Thank you for your interest in Carleton St Hilda’s Church of England Primary School.

Welcome to Carleton St Hilda’s Church of England Primary School.

Our school prides itself in providing a high quality of education for all of our children within a warm, nurturing and supportive environment based on our Christian Values and rooted in the Christian beliefs and teachings.

The strong Christian ethos and distinctiveness permeates all aspects of the curriculum as well as all other areas of school life and underpins all of our work as we prepare children for their future lives. Our church and diocesan links are very important to us. We work closely with the local churches and clergy of St Hilda’s in Carleton and St Chad’s in Poulton-le-Fylde.

We are a happy school where children enjoy learning and playing together. We recognise that every child is unique and all staff work hard to ensure that each child reaches their full potential in all aspects of school life.

Learning is personalised so that it meets the needs of individual children. We can therefore provide a caring and inclusive environment for all.

We are committed to ensuring that all children leave our school with key basic skills to equip them for further learning – particularly reading, writing and mathematical skills. We want our children to be successful and we work hard to provide a broad, balanced and creative curriculum through which each individual child is able to develop their own interests, skills and talents within a supportive environment. We are also able to offer a range of extra curricular activities and children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and to try something ‘new’. We provide many opportunities for children to excel within a variety of sports and to experience a range of performing arts including various musical instruments.

We are blessed with a wonderful, safe and stimulating environment for teaching and learning, both within school and also within the outdoor environment. We believe that learning should be fun, engaging and challenging. This, alongside high quality teaching and learning gives each and every child the opportunities and the chance they deserve.

This website should give you a sense of what our school has to offer, but more importantly you would be very welcome to come and look round and see for yourself the warm, family feel and the special nurturing atmosphere and education that our children at St Hilda’s enjoy.

Please ring for an appointment. I would be very proud to show you around and the children and staff look forward to meeting you and sharing our school with you.
