Our School

Wisdom begins in Wonder!

Castle Carrock School is part of a small village community nestled at the foot of a fell on the Eastern fringes of Cumbria.

See the latest from the Headteacher’s Blog here.

During term-timcine, we offer Kid’s Clubs before and after school; effectively providing wraparound childcare in a safe environment for pupils from 8:00 until 18:00 daily.

We have a maximum intake of fifteen pupils each year from an extensive catchment area. Our pupils are educated in mixed age groups, with a Nursery/Reception class, a Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7) class and two Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) classes. If you are interested in finding out more about the school find out about our open mornings here.

Our Mission Statement and Aims

Castle Carrock School will offer each child an aspirational, all round, forward thinking, first class education based on traditional values.
Respect, resilience and togetherness are at the core of all that we do. We want to inspire every child to be the best they can be.
Our school will teach valuable life skills, provide an array of exciting extra curricula opportunities for all children and offer a caring, happy and inclusive working environment where pupils are taught to be independent, responsible and well-rounded members of the local community.
In short, we offer a firm foundation for life.

 

Our Values and Ethos

We are a happy aDSC_0026nd exciting primary school with children from Nursery to Year 6. Our motto is ‘Wisdom begins in Wonder’ and we use this to harness children’s natural curiousity and turn it into positive learning experiences! We have a firm belief in developing the whole child; using our environment and our community to support children in becoming responsible and happy members of the community. After all happy children make good learners!

There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources – pupils, staff, visiting adults, governors etc. or external sources – school community, external agencies or individuals.

Any prejudice, discrimination or extremist views, including derogatory language, displayed by pupils, staff, visitors or parents will always be challenged and, where appropriate, dealt with.

We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

 

We are very proud of our school!
