Carlton C of E Primary school is very proud of its’ high standards and broad and balanced creative curriculum and this was recognised by the school achieving the Artsmark. Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme which enables schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision.


Cultural Capital​

We strive to include culture into our curriculum and take note of major changes in society. The Black Lives Matters campaign is something staff and children will be exploring at an appropriate level and in a positive way.

We are proactive in embedding a wide range of cultures and cultural experiences into the learning journeys of our children. ​

Visits and visitors to school enhance the curriculum; providing stimulating and exciting learning experiences, promoting excellence and enjoyment.


We have enjoyed inspirational visitors from all over the world, such as from Zimbabwe who taught the children about African culture, music and dance.







Throughout the year we celebrate a variety of events such as National Poetry Day, World Book Day and Into Film Festival which are enjoyed by all our children and help to enrich curriculum and enthuse learning.


The whole school will be taking part in the National Art Gallery's 'Take One Picture', completing a wide range of tasks to develop artistic skills. 


 Once again this year, we will be looking to invite visitors into school who can inspire writing and creativity. Having enjoyed visits from James Carter, Gillian McClure and other writers and artists, we will be looking to bring more talent and excellence into school to encourage the children to work hard and dream big.


Music is highly valued at Carlton C of E Primary School. All pupils have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and we have regular Music Assemblies. Pupils in year 2 and above are able to learn the recorder. We have visiting peripatetic teachers for the piano,  cello and guitar. We also have a school choir. 


As part of the wider opportunities programme children in KS2, together with their teachers, take part in the Sing On music programme or learn to play a musical instrument - this could be either the ukelele, guitar or whole class band. This year our Year 4 children will be learning Rock Ukelele.

Despite Covid-19  and the restrictions it places on us, we are striving to ensure we continue to deliver a broad, balanced and irresistible curriculum.
