Carter's Charity Primary School

Day-to-day Information



We are all very much looking forward to this year’s Sports’ Day. we are hoping it will go ahead next Wednesday morning, 15th June. The weather forecast at the moment does predict showers on Tuesday and Wednesday but that forecast will change many times between now and then. If we have to postpone the event, we will make that decision on the Tuesday evening (14th June). We have allocated the following day, Thursday 16th June, as our potential back up.

As it will  be the Commonwealth Games later this summer, and we are one of the relay teams for the Games Baton making its way around the world, children will be competing in their teams with each one representing a different Commonwealth island country. More information about the baton relay will be shared soon.


All children need to come to school in their Active Uniform that they wear on Games or PE days.


As part of our desire to return to the traditional way that we engage with all of you, we are re-opening the special Sports’ Day Breakfast Café for parents and visitors to enjoy a breakfast barm and a brew before they brave the wilds of our school field.

The timetable for the day is below:


8:40 am                                Gates open as normal with children going to class

Y4 to enter using the Staff Room door

Café doors open (Hall doors up the ramp)

9:05 am                                Last orders for brews & butties

Gates locked to ensure security & safety

Covid Update 3rd May 2022

Tuesday, 03 May 2022

Good morning families,


I am writing to inform you that we have a few children absent following a positive test for COVID-19 and I wanted to remind you of the current guidance around infections and isolation.


Although there is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate, we advise that people with symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory infections should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, particularly with people who have a high risk of becoming seriously ill if they get COVID-19. People can return to work or school when they no longer have a high temperature or no longer feel unwell.


Children and young people under 18 yrs. are no longer advised to test for COVID-19, unless directed by a health professional. If a child or young people have a positive COVID-19 test they should try to stay at home for 3 days after the test. Household contacts of someone with COVID-19 should continue to attend school as usual.


People aged 18 or over who get a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days after the test. If they need to leave their home during those 5 days, they should wear a face covering and avoid enclosed and crowded spaces. 

People who live in the same household of someone with COVID-19, or who stayed overnight in the same house, should reinforce measures to avoid spreading respiratory infections to other people for 10 days. They should avoid contact with people with a higher risk of severe COVID-19 infection and use a face covering if going to enclosed or crowded spaces.


Check more details on what to do if you have respiratory symptoms or a positive COVID test here.


Take care,

Advice to support children at this current time

The current situation in the Ukraine is a worrying time for all of us and children very quickly pick up on the emotions and concerns that people have. I have shared this leaflet that might help you as parents address those questions and worries. If things come up in school, these are the sort of activities that we will use:
