At Fieldhead Carr Primary School, we are passionate that our children feel secure in enabling environments and form positive relationships with the people they spend time with. We want them to develop language to communicate with others, share and co-operate and form basic concepts which help them understand the world we live in.

Children learn best through play in an environment that promotes exploration and so resources are organised to provide a wide range of areas of provision, each promoting learning opportunities across some or all of the areas of experience. These areas are regularly enhanced to support learning across different themes and to follow children’s particular interests.

It is our aim to give the whole family an enjoyable start to school life when they join our school. We are committed to offering each and every child inspirational learning experiences that set them on their learning journey
