Go back to Our School...

Carlton C of E Primary School has been reaccredited with Green Flag Status for the 3rd time and has achieved the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark!




The school has achieved the ultimate Eco Award, the Green Flag for the third time running. This is the result of hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of all members of the school community. The assessor was extremely impressed with the level of responsibility children have running the School / Eco council. As part of our Eco School initiative we have had solar panels installed. We have also supported other schools working towards eco schools status.


We now have our own free range chickens. The children take responsibility for looking after them and they are some of the healthiest chickens to be seen, laying large delicious eggs!


Carlton School has been awarded the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark, which recognises the quality of science investigation, teaching and learning throughout the school.


We have also been awarded the Green Tree Gold Award, Eco School Green Flag and the Living Countryside Sustainable Living/Landscape Improvement Silver Award which was presented by the Bedfordshire Branch of the CPRE.



As part of Science week, we had a visit from Unilever scientists, who gave an exciting, interactive whole school demonstration on solids, liquids and gases. The older children spent the afternoon being scientists, investigating chemical reactions, hand hygiene and making (and tasting) delicious ice cream. An amazing and inspiring learning experience for all!


Throughout the week the children undertook a wide range of science investigations, with Year 4 children leading activities for younger pupils.
