Message from the Headteacher

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher at Carmountside Primary Academy.

Education changes lives and I am passionate about ensuring all young people are given as many chances in life as possible through a broad education focused on academic success, excellence in terms of care and welfare, and ensuring their talents and achievements are recognized whatever they may be. When they leave Carmountside I want them to be excited about the opportunities that exist for them and have a ‘crucial sense of possibility’ – vital for success in life. Carmountside is an outstanding school and delivers on instilling that sense of possibility year on year.

When you visit Carmountside you will be struck by a thoroughly uplifting and purposeful working environment that has an excellent mix of social and academic success. Great relationships exist across the school and pupils make superb academic progress. Excellent relationships in schools are a prerequisite for success in tests and assessments. Pupils at Carmountside make outstanding progress, consistently within the top 10% (‘Value added’) of schools nationally over the last 5 years.

I am delighted to be Head of this special place serving all of the Abbey Hulton and wider community to ensure that all pupils achieve more than they ever thought possible.

I look forward very much to working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any questions or to arrange a visit.

Mr. P. McLauchlan
