Back to school!

There will be staggered start and finish times to the school day to limit the number of people in the playground at one time. Please note there should be only one adult per child in the playground. Everyone needs to observe social distancing at all times when dropping and collecting. Class teachers will come and meet classes outside.
Year R: 8.55am – 3.10pm (queue on path leading up the hill)
Year 1: 8.55am – 3.10pm (queue on path leading down the hill)
Year 2: 9am – 3.15pm (queue on top playground by the shelter)
Year 3: 8.50am – 3.05pm (queue on top playground on the opposite side to the shelter)
Year 4: 9am – 3.15pm (queue in the MUGA – enter school by fire exit)
Year 5: 8.50am – 3.05pm (queue on path above the MUGA – enter school by fire exit)
Year 6: 8.55am – 3.10pm (queue on patio outside Y6 outside door)
Unfortunately, families will not be allowed to socialise in the school grounds before or after school, and the gates will shut at 3.30pm each day.
All communication with school needs to be via phone or email please as there will be no access to the school building for parents other than in emergencies.


I am proud to be the Headteacher of Carlton Hill Primary School, where ‘heart and rigour’ are at the centre of what we do.  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 mission statement: “Fair means that everyone gets what they need, not that everyone gets the same” means that we support individuals and families, in many different ways, to thrive at our school. Finally, we are part of a strong Partnership of local schools, BCPfE, which gives us important opportunities to share good practice, training and resources.

Please come and visit our school and award winning grounds in person!

Do you receive 'School Ping'?

At Carlton Hill, we use a system called 'School Ping' to send messages to our Parents and Carers. This works best through the School Ping App which you can download to your mobile, for both Apple iPhones or Android phones. If you are a new parent at Carlton Hill, you should receive information by email explaining this, together with your account login, within a week of your child starting at school. If you have not received this, or you have any problems accessing School Ping, please come and ask at the School Office and we will be happy to help you with this.
