Carrington provides a modern, relevant schooling set firmly in the mainstream of good educational practice.
A happy and secure environment ensures each individual achieves his or her full potential. Extra-curricular activities flourish, particularly in sport and music.
The school caters for boys and girls aged 7 to 11. We accept children primarily from the area west of Flackwell Heath but have some from much further afield.
The school has a pleasant, semi-rural location on the edge of the village. Originally the site was a cherry orchard, owned by the Carrington family - hence our logo.
We believe that:
Every child matters and should be given access to the very best learning opportunities to ensure they reach their potential.
Every child should have the confidence to be an individual and be proud of who they are. Every child should be set and know how to achieve goals.
Every child should become a responsible citizen and value the community around them.
We believe that all members of our school community should work together to maintain a safe, clean and stimulating environment which encompasses not only the learning environment and the school grounds, but the surrounding area also.
We aim to promote sustainability and an awareness of wider global issues through our developing curriculum and the links made with our local and global communities. Good teamwork and positive partnerships – with individual children, the whole class, our colleagues, with governors, parents and the wider community will lead to effective teaching, high standards and successful learning.
Our Children believe Carrington to be a School where:
