We are really pleased to inform you that on the 1st April 2018 we finally converted to an Academy. We will now be known as Charnwood Primary Academy and are part of SUAT - Staffordshire University Academy Trust.
We hope you all enjoyed your special brunch today. The children baked and created some amazing food and we are very proud of their achievements. We hope this was the perfect start to Mother's day and that you enjoy your special day on Sunday. Thank you for everything you do for your children.
Thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of the morning. It was really appreciated.
Photos to be added to the events page as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone safely back in school on Monday 26th February. Get ready for a busy half term: Parents evening, Mother's day pink ticket event, Easter activities, SATs preparation, more outdoor learning (wrap up against the 'beast from the east') and hopefully the installation of our running track! We can't wait!

Thank you to everyone who joined us. We hope you found it informative.
We have to agree with parental comments of how fantastic and effective the picture books we use are to support the teaching of the equality act.
As a school we discussed this topic with children during assemblies. This is something we care strongly about and work with the children and parents to ensure bullying is seen as not acceptable at Charnwood.
Please download and have a look at the parent leaflet. No-one wants bullying to happen and as a school we want to work with children and families to ensure Charnwood is a safe place to come to school.
Woodland Days in early years
Thank you to all the parents who braved the weather and joined Nursery and Reception in the exciting launch of Woodland Days. Take a look at all of the photos on our Early Years Page!
Changes to PE Kit.
Don't forget the change in our PE uniform. All children require a white t-shirt and black shorts and a change of footwear for PE. Please leave PE kit in school for the whole half term then children will always have it when needed.
