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.


'The school is a caring community where the needs of pupils are at the heart of everything the school does. Children get an exceptional start to their school career in Nursery and Reception classes.'

Wednesday, 3rd May 2017



I would like to thank everyone for all their support following our recent OFSTED inspection. The school was judged against five key areas over two days, with four inspectors ensuring that every aspect was scrutinised and reviewed. I know many of you took the time to speak personally with the inspectors, or responded online to the OFSTED questionnaire, and these views have also been taking into account in the final report which can be found following this link: 

OFSTED Final Report 2017


The final overall judgement was good, with two key areas identified as outstanding:

Children's personal development, behaviour and welfare 

Early Years Provision


Some of the statements from the inspection statement included:

  • The school is a caring community where the needs of pupils are at the heart of everything the school does. 

  • A clear long-term vision has resulted in pupils’ outstanding personal development and behaviour . The behaviour of pupils is exemplary. 

  • The school provides a stimulating and varied range of opportunities for pupils to extend their learning in music, sport and the creative arts. 

  • Parents are overwhelmingly positive about all aspects of the school’s work ("The school is beyond supportive of me and my family." "The school knows my child as a person.").

  • Children get an exceptional start to their school career in Nursery and Reception classes. They make huge gains in their learning early on and are well prepared for Year 1. 

  • Pupils are safe and well cared for. Leaders make sure that there are highly effective safeguarding arrangements in place.


Once again, many thanks for your continued support - it's by working togther that we will continue to make such a positive impact on our children's lives.



Carr Mill Primary vs Radio Merseyside!

The children of Year 6 were the stars of Radio Merseyside Breakfast Show when they took on Presenter Tony Snell in a early morning quiz. Needless to say our children were at their best - want to know who won? Listen to the clip at the bottom of this page.


Tea@2 with Mr Maley!

I have been fortunate to have afternoon tea with four of our Reception children—Lily, Leon, Cleo and Oscar. It was fantastic to hear how proud they are of everything they are doing in school and see the progress they have made in their work. I’m already looking forward to having afternoon tea with some of our children in C1MP next!



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
