Carlton’s School Vision

Our vision is that all children leave Carlton ready for the next stage in their learning, and are able to make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead at secondary school and beyond.

As well as a firm foundation in reading, writing and mathematics, they will have a broad and deep knowledge and understanding of the wider curriculum.
Throughout the school, children will be confident, self-regulating, and feel able to ask questions. As learners, they will be able to evaluate and self-reflect on their own style of learning, while being able to identify and utilise the most effective strategies that will enable them to rise to any challenge. They will not be afraid to take risks in their learning.

Being part of a Rights Respecting School, children will develop a sense of responsibility as global citizens, be curious about the world around them, and understand their (and others’) rights.

Children will be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy, thus being able to make informed choices and build positive relationships. They will be ambitious and aspirational, with an awareness of their own goals and a strong sense of possibility, embodying the school motto: If you believe, you CAN achieve.

Carlton is a Rights Respecting School, the following articles underpin our vision;

Article 12: Every child has the right to have a say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.
Article 13: Every child must be free to say what they think and to seek and receive all kinds of information, as long as it is within the law.
Article 14: Every child has the right to think and believe what they want and to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights of parents to give their children information about this right.
Article 28: Every child has the right to an education. Primary education must be free. Secondary education must be available for every child. Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
Article 29: Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
