We are delighted to be awarded the Silver  Mark Award for sports provision in school. See our PE sports page for more information.

Welcome to our school website.

We hope you will find the information on the website useful and that it gives you an insight into our school. If you cannot find what you wish to know please ring the school office and we will do our best to help. 

Our school has recently converted to become an academy and we are in process of updating all information on the web site to reflect this. 



In June Vernon Coker MP for Gedling came to visit our brand new Early Years Unit 'Little Herons' along with Andy Burns Executive Principal of the Redhill Academy Trust, Julie Wardle Executive Head of Carlton Junior Academy and Anna Spencer Head of Carlton Infant Academy. It was wonderful to show off our fantastic new early years facility which has been built to provide additional early years care for families in the local area.



Our links to Nottingham University.

 As you know we are constantly working hard find different ways to excite and inspire your children. One of the ways that we are able to do this is by using our links with Nottingham University. This year we have already had 3 Science sessions held by students from the University with our Year 5 class. They learned about their bodies and how, particularly their mighty muscles and also germs how they spread.

These inspiring sessions got the children learning in new and practical ways but also helped to raise their aspirations for going to University when they are older. The feedback from the children was very positive.

We are now currently having visits from students carrying out Philosophy sessions with our Year 3 and 4 classes and carrying out a Science After School Club. Keep your eyes open for more opportunities this year.


Visit from author Daniel Henshaw

On Wednesday 7th March we had a visit from a local author.

Daniel Henshaw came to talk to the school about being an author and writing mystery stories. He held an exciting whole school assembly and then worked with all 4 KS2 classes where they planned their own mystery stories. He was extremely busy signing books and having photos taken at the end of the day.

This event really got the children excited about reading and writing and they were very proud of the stories they wrote. Maybe we have a future published author within our school!

National Justice Museum Nottingham

Year 5 have been asked by the National Justice Museum in Nottingham to help create a new exhibition about Superheroes. We have worked with an artist and a poet and some of our work and ideas will be on display this summer.

Dementia Awareness

Year 5 are thrilled to have pen pals at Morton Grange Care Home. They were very interested in finding out about dementia from the Manager of the Care Home. We have now made some new friends as we write to each other regularly. We were thrilled to meet each other in person at our tea party where we welcomed our new friends to our school.
