Free School Meals (FSM)

We are presently using our meal provider NORSE to offer a weekly food box for all free school meals (FSM).  The DfE have asked that we only use the online voucher system if we are not able to issue food through our usual provider, NORSE.  During the summer break we will be using the DfE's online e-voucher system via Edenred to issue a single voucher at the beginning of the holiday to cover the full break.

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.

Partial school reopening

We are now open to children in YR, Y1 and Y6 as well as those who are considered vulnerable or are the children of key (critical) workers.   If you require a place, please contact us at or 01953 789384 to discuss and arrange the place.  Please do not just turn up without letting us know as we need to be sure we have enough space, equipment and staffing as it may be that we need to set up a new bubble.

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
