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

Free School Meals (FSM)
after Easter Holidays

If your child has free school meals (FSM) because your family is on a low income, we are one of the fortunate schools whose lunch provider is still able to make a daily fresh and nutritious packed lunch for your child to eat.  We will therefore not be needing to use the government voucher scheme. To order your free meals please contact or text or phone 07743497686 (school mobile number). Orders for the week need to be in by 9am on Monday.

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
