Working Together, Shaping Our Future

Carr Mill Primary is a caring, nurturing community, with a team of staff who are committed to ensuring the needs of all children are at the heart of everything the school does. We provide a stimulating, inclusive curriculum with a varied range of engaging opportunities for children to extend their learning.

We are extremely proud of all our children, and are determined to support every child in exceeding their potential, both academically and as a whole person.

Alfie - Never to be forgotten

Recently, we had the very sad news that one of our much loved pupils, Alfie Dyson, had died following a short, incredibly brave fight with a very rare form of cancer.

Thank you to everyone who has passed on their thoughts and prayers for Alfie. We have been asked about assemblies and memorials to help celebrate his life and of course will be looking at many ways to make sure that Alfie is never forgotten and remembered for everything that he brought to us all. All this will be done with Alfie’s family’s wishes and we will let you know of any future plans.

Alfie was a good friend to a lot of children and was well liked by all the adults in the school. He is going to be greatly missed and his memory will live on through all of us. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family.

Events for Week beginning Monday 13th

Children in Need and BBC Merseyside

I am delighted to tell you that Carr Mill has been selected to host the BBC’s Children in Need fundraising event. We will be the only school in St Helens to do this!

We will be visited on the morning of Tuesday 14th November by Pudsey Bear and the Radio Merseyside Breakfast Team of Tony Snell, Steve Coleman and Kat MacDonald. The team will be travelling by bike so exact timings are hard to say, although we expect to be ‘live on air’ on Tuesday between 9am and 11am – we hope you can tune in!

As they are visiting us for Children in Need, on Monday we will be creating a ‘money trail’, aiming for the trail to reach around every part of the school! If you have any spare change that you would like to donate to Children in Need, please send this into school on Monday and your child can place it in the ‘Money Trail’. The money will then be put into the BBC Children in Need buckets that arrive with Radio Merseyside on Tuesday. Any donation of any amount is gratefully received – this can be as loose change or any other way – and we will ensure it goes in the buckets on Tuesday.


Friendship Week

This week we are celebrating Friendship, with lots of activities and events arranged to support the importance of this. As part of the celebration, we would like to invite families in to our assembly on Friday, followed by the opportunity to spend time in your child’s classroom to celebrate the Friendship work they have completed as part of the week. We hope to see you there!


Last Week: Remembrance Service

We are incredibly proud of all our Year 5 and 6 children who represented the school at the Lowe House Church Remembrance Service. They led readings, sang and danced to help create a fitting tribute to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice over the years.


The church was full of children and staff from ten different schools across St Helens, and our children were a great example to all. Thank you to all of Year 5 and 6 for showing exactly what Carr Mill Primary is all about!


Upcoming: Parent’s Evening

Our Autumn Term Parent’s Evening will be taking place on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st November. Opportunities to book appointments were sent directly to mobile phones by text and already the majority of parent’s have accessed this system and booked appointments. If you haven’t booked your appointment yet, please follow the text instructions to secure a time. For those who prefer to book an appointment over the phone, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office directly.


Website Blogging!

I would like to invite you all to write a 'blog' on our website. You don't need to sign in - simply go to the top of this page, click on school blogs, pick a blog and then start typing. You can either say something different or reply to one that someone has already written. All blogs are sent for approval, but once approved they are a great way of sharing your opinion on a range of school topics. I hope to speak to you soon on a blog!


Thank you for your continued support,

Mr A Maley
