Welcome to The Rookeries Carleton Junior, Infant & Nursery School

Our school provides a warm, supportive environment in which our dedicated and hardworking team of staff are committed to developing the whole child and children are encouraged to achieve their full potential.

We are proud and pleased to have the Wakefield Local Authority Primary Resource for deaf and hearing-impaired pupils based at the school. It is the only primary resource within the authority and there are currently places for 16 pupils.

As part of Pontefract Academies Trust we work together with other schools to aim high and keep improving outcomes for learners through structured collaborative working.

We hope that you find that our website gives you enough information to choose us as the place where your child can be a successful and happy learner, however, the best way to get a feel for life at The Rookeries is by coming to visit us - we look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes

Miss Nicola Ellwand
Head of School
