Message from our Head Teacher


At Carlton, children’s learning and personal development is at the heart of everything we do.

Welcome to our fantastic school!

We hope you enjoy exploring our website and finding out what makes Carlton such as special place.

Carlton is a calm, safe and happy school that welcomes children and families from a range of diverse backgrounds. We foster a positive whole school ethos of good manners, high expectations of behaviour and clear rules and boundaries, where everyone in our community has a voice and feels valued and respected.

Our staff are committed to providing the very best learning experience for every child. They encourage the children to develop a love of learning, to challenge themselves and take risks so that they can reach their full potential. One of our many strengths is our well planned curriculum which meets the needs of the children and prepares them for the next stage in their learning. Being a London school also means that we can take full advantage of exhibitions and performances. Consequently, off-site educational trips and visitors to the school are well embedded in our curriculum.

Each child’s personal development underpins everything we do. We support the children in developing the skills of mutual respect, cooperation and tolerance. We provide them with the opportunities to learn successfully both independently and as part of a team.

Carlton has an inclusive philosophy that promotes the development of life skills where pupils take responsibility for their own learning and share in the decision making in order to make a positive contribution to society.

We are really proud of our school and our children and look forward to welcoming you to Carlton Community. There are regular tours of the school and we welcome interested families to come and visit us.
