Our motto is our mantra.
Together, we can achieve anything.
Our vision also spells out what we aim to achieve:
We create a culture where ALL children fulfil their PERSONAL, SOCIAL and ACADEMIC potential in preparation for life after Carlton Primary Academy.
Our core values are the things that we truly believe and the things that bind us all together. Decisions about how the school moves forward especially about how we will develop the curriculum are based around these values:
Here at Carlton our sense of community is great. From our overwhelming responsibility to sustain, improve and serve our local area to seeing our unique place in the wider community within Barnsley, England and the world, our commitment to be outward facing is paramount.
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
Coretta Scott King
Here at Carlton we respect one another and our school environment. In doing so, we understand other people’s beliefs, views and opinions but are open to be challenged in a polite and appropriate way.
“Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.”
Here at Carlton we strive for excellence in our academic learning, sporting achievements, musical performance, teamwork and leadership challenges and wellbeing. Our commitment to being the best version of ourselves is constant.
“Find something that you're really interested in doing in your life. Pursue it, set goals, and commit yourself to excellence. Do the best you can.”
Here at Carlton we take pride in the way we present ourselves, our work and our views and when we represent our academy in the wider community, we do so with responsibility and dignity.
“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”
We encourage you to speak with your children about what these values mean to them and how they could guide them at school and out in the wider community.
