With a relationship of trust and support with Parents & Carers and this school community working together...
Welcome to Carlinghow Princess Royal J. I. & N. School.
Please be patient whilst we update our school website.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We would like to let you know about the national writing competition we are promoting to the children at Carlinghow for the first time this year called 500 words.
The submitted story must be the child’s own work and may not include work from other known stories. It can include real life characters (such as Prince William, the astronaut Tim Peakes, the footballer Gareth Bale or the pop star Ellie Goulding) or characters they have created. The events must be imagined. It can take place in historical eras such as the Stone Age or during the Fire of London, present day settings such as the rainforest, the moon or set in the future. All stories must be submitted in English.
The children will need to write their story at home and submit it online (see website address below) with their parents’ permission and support. If this is not possible or you would like any further support from school, please contact the office and we will be happy to help.
We have so many fantastic writers in our school and hope that lots of children will take part. More inspiration and information about the competition can be found at:
The closing date for entries online to the BBC is 7pm on Thursday 22rd February. Please do get in touch if you have any queries. Happy writing!
Yours faithfully, Miss A. Rawat
Subject Leader for Literacy
Welcome to Carlinghow Princess Royal J. I. & N. School
I am fortunate to be the Head Teacher at Carlinghow and to see the amazing progress your children make on a daily basis. The website is a snap shot of what is happening.
Carlinghow is a larger than average primary school catering for children from the ages of 2 to 11. We are fortunate to be set in large grounds, with a forest trail and garden. The school is situated on the Wilton estate with the wonderful Victorian Wilton Park just below the school.
The school was opened by H.R.H. Princess Royal on the 12th May 1939
On the 26th June 1940 , with consent of H.R.H. the Princess Royal and by command of His Majesty the King, the school was re-named ‘The Princess Royal Senior Girls School' on the 26th June 1940.
The school was rebuilt as a primary school and was visited by H.R.H. The Princess Royal on July 15th 1989.
Please do keep re-visiting this site as it is currently undergoing a major overhaul, to be more user friendly and to enable us to share the learning your children undertake.
Mr. A. Wilcock
Our School Vision
Our aim is for Carlinghow Princess Royal J I & N School to be a school of excellence where high expectations are fundamental to all we do. The school will be a place where the children feel happy because the ethos of care and positive relationships makes everyone feel safe and valued. Our children will experience a rich curriculum with a wide range of opportunities available to all of them so that they leave school well rounded confident individuals and critical thinkers who have the skills and aspirations to be lifelong learners. We want the children to learn in a vibrant and creative environment where all children are challenged and experience the excitement of learning. We will have strong links with the local community and beyond and establish supportive partnerships. Diversity will be celebrated and we will be fully inclusive. Two way communication between school and all stakeholders will be a strength so that everyone feels involved in the life of the school.
