Striving for excellence, caring for all

School aims

At The Rookeries Carleton Junior, Infant & Nursery School we aim to provide a creative, enjoyable and rewarding learning experience for each child in an inclusive, secure and stimulating environment.

We aim:

  • To ensure that no pupil is disadvantaged because of background or educational needs.
  • To ensure that pupils have a sound grounding to help develop their full potential at school, college, university and in life.
  • To ensure that every pupil can realise their aspiration.

We want to make sure that all pupils will:

  • Develop lively enquiring minds to question and argue rationally and apply themselves to all tasks.
  • Develop self-awareness, self-reliance, self-esteem and confidence.
  • Use language and numbers effectively.
  • Recognise, celebrate and learn from different cultures and faiths within our community.
  • Understand and respond to the needs of local, national and international communities.

We can achieve this by having high expectations; striving to create a secure, friendly and caring atmosphere, where well-merited praise is used to enable each child to develop their talents to their full potential.

We aim to provide a happy school where learning is fun and exciting.
