What do parents and carers say about our school?

Here are some parental comments from our 2022 school survey:

"I love the feeling of inclusiveness within the school and the drive the teachers clearly have. My daughter is always excited and ready to learn and this is an obvious reflection of the school. Thank you." Reception parent

"I am thankful my daughter has great teachers around her to support her whilst she grows. She expresses great respect and love for her teachers. She is always telling me how much she is supported when needed. I am very happy she attends Carlton Hill. I believe the open, caring and friendly approach has helped build her confidence and she loves learning. She has learnt how to read in her first year of reception which has blown my mind. I absolutely love seeing her learning progress! Thank you." Reception parent

"Does well: SEND support, cultural diversity."  Reception parent

"We are delighted to be part of the Carlton Hill community. We couldn’t imagine our two children going to another, or a better school. They have always loved attending and are excited to be with their friends."   Y1 and Y3 parent

"The general ethos of the school and student body is absolutely lovely. The teachers that have taught my daughter so far have been consistently excellent." Year 1 parent

"The sense of inclusion, motivating teachers and creative learning techniques helps the children to bring out their best."  Year 2 parent 

"I'm impressed how quickly emotional and friendship challenges are managed and I feel it's easy to bring any difficulties to the school."  Year 2 parent

"We were so lucky to go to Carlton Hill as our first school in the UK. My son has adapted to a new education system, thanks to you." Year 3 parent

"All the staff are amazing and easy to approach - always keeping me updated with any changes or issues." Year 4 parent

"We feel very blessed that our child is at such a wonderful, supportive and community lead school. Thank you for another wonderful year. We really appreciate all your amazing work and we look forward to another great year ahead."  Year 4 parent

"I really appreciated that my son's teacher called me when I emailed to ask some questions about his report and further support, which I think reflects the caring ethos of the school."  Year 5 parent

"My child came into the school last September with major gaps in her spelling and writing knowledge and capabilities. She had no confidence whatsoever whenever she had to do a writing task and even writing someone a little card was extremely stressful. However since joining Carlton Hill in September she has been given fantastic spelling support by the teaching staff to help her close that gap. She is not quite there yet, but she is now 80% confident when it comes to writing which is wonderful and unbelievably she has entered a National writing competition which the school informed the children about. This just goes to show what a fantastic job the teaching staff have done. Honestly, for us as parents this is an unbelievable achievement. We are so so grateful to the Year 5 teacher and support staff. And regarding the school as a whole, we are very glad to be here for we think it is a very happy and nurturing environment. Thank you very much Carlton Hill."  Year 5 parent

"Both of my children have had a brilliant experience at Carlton Hill, and have been gently encouraged or pushed when needed. We’ve been supported as a family when issues have arisen." Year 6 parent

"Welcoming staff and Headteacher. Ms Beer is always friendly and warm to me. Because the school is smaller, you feel more of a community. I have always felt my daughter is getting a high quality care and education. She is in her final year and I know she has always enjoyed her time at Carlton Hill. Thanks."   Year 6 parent

"You are good at listening to an individual child's specific needs and acting upon these. I can’t think of many ways you could improve the school!" Year 6 parent

"The individual support and care for my child is fantastic, including enabling him to go to after school activities."  Year 1 parent

Our Headteacher

I am proud to be the Headteacher of Carlton Hill Primary School. Our school vision is ‘Kind Hearts and Curious Minds.’  To this end, we help our children to develop their self-confidence and encourage them to be kind and to respect one another. We also promote a ‘growth mindset’ amongst children (and adults!) which encourages creativity, risk taking and a thirst for learning.

Our long standing ethos “Fair means that everyone gets what they need, not that everyone gets the same” means that we support our children and families, in many different ways, to thrive at our school. Finally, we are part of two strong Partnerships of local schools, BCPfE and SCSA, which give us important opportunities to share good practice, training and resources across the city.

We strongly encourage visits to our one form entry school so that you can meet our friendly children and staff, browse around our well-resourced school and enjoy the award winning grounds!

Please contact us on 01273 - 604966 or email admin@carltonhill.brighton-hove.sch.uk to arrange a visit.

We really look forward to meeting you and your child/ren.
