Welcome to Carrington Primary School

Welcome from the headteacher


Carrington is a warm, creative school with high expectations of pupil achievement and behaviour. We are a small school with a very diverse intake both ethnically and socially. We pride ourselves on our sense of community and our active encouragement of respect and tolerance. OFSTED recognised this in their last inspection, describing Carrington as an “harmonious multicultural community.”

We seek to create a stimulating environment which responds to the strengths, needs and individuality of our children. A friendly and supportive atmosphere encourages good progress and high achievement. We aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which reflects our local community and excites an enthusiasm for learning.

Visits are warmly welcomed; please contact our office and make an appointment. You can find more about our school in our prospectus, and through our OFSTED report and performance tables.

Welcome to Carrington Primary School


Welcome back to what we are sure will be another successful year at Carrington Primary School.


We have been accredited with the International School Award 2017 – 2020. It is testament to our whole school commitment to embedding a rich and creative range of international work, and the hard work of our children and staff.

Carrington received a short ‘ section 8′ inspection on 11th January 2018. We were visited by an HMI inspector who spent one day in school looking at: outcomes, teaching, leadership, academic standards and behaviour and safety.  She reported that: the school has maintained a good quality of education;  the school has successfully raised the level of challenge; pupils, staff, governors and parents spoke warmly about the caring ethos of the school and that staff work with a common purpose to ensure pupils’ safety.
