Following government direction our school is closed from 20th March 2020 until further notice.

Free School Meals (FSM)

Now that we have clarification from the DfE and from our meal providers NORSE, we have decided to go over to using the DfE's online e-voucher for all free school meals (FSM) for the time being while we are not in school normally.  We hope that this is easier for you than coming to school and collecting a packed lunch daily.  Please check your phone/device for the e-codes.

If you think you may be entitled to FSM, please contact the office and we will direct you to the application form you need.

Thank you.

Critical Key Workers

If you require childcare for your child/ren because you and your partner are both key workers or you are a single parent and are a key worker, our federation of schools and staff can provide this for you - or signpost you to it if we can't.

Over the Easter holidays we are using Carleton Rode school as a base.  After this we are not sure which base we will use but we will be open so long as we have staffing.  Please email Judith Jones at and/or Jon Wheater at to request a place.  We will check our emails several times a day and over the weekends so we know if you need a place for the next working day.

Thank you.

We are a friendly, three class Church of England primary school in the village of Carleton Rode.  Our children are aged from 4 to 11 years and come from a wide surrounding area as well as from the village itself.  In September 2019, we entered into a federation with Forncett St Peter CEVA Primary, a neighbouring church school.  This new, close relationship has brought many benefits to both schools.

Here and at our sister school, every child is very important to us whatever their abilities or circumstances and we pride ourselves on knowing them all well as individuals whom we feel privileged to work with.  Our federation’s ethos is founded on the belief that we should love our neighbour as we love ourselves and show this by treating others as we would like to be treated.  This belief is central to all we do as a learning communities and makes for two happy and harmonious schools where our children feel safe, settled and ready to learn and grow.  We warmly welcome visits to see us in action.

Please email or telephone us if you would like to know more.

Best wishes,
Judith Jones – Executive Headteacher
