Headteachers comments

We are nearing the end of the school year and we are sorry to see Mrs Nina Chapman retire in July. Mrs Chapman has been with Carlinghow School for 29 years. The children and the staff will be sad to see her leave, but we wish her well in her retirement.


Mrs Gallagher will also be retiring at the end of July and we wish her all the best in her retirement.


We would like to welcome Mr Andrew Wilcock who will be the new Head teacher when we return to school in September. In the meantime, Mrs Fretwell is acting Head teacher until that time.

It is very important that our children’s records are kept up to date. If your details have changed please call into the school office with an update.



Please ensure that Breakfast Club and School Meals are be paid for at the beginning of the week. If there are any outstanding arrears, your child will be unable to attend breakfast club. If there are any arrears on school meals, your child will no longer be entitled to a school dinner and will have to bring sandwiches from home. Dinner Money will be increasing in September from £2.00 to £2.12 per day, £10.60 per week.



If you think your child is entitled to free school meals (FSM) you must apply for them either by contacting Kirklees Free School Meals on 01484221928 or via the Customer Service Offices, The Walsh Building, Dewsbury. Applying for FSM helps the school with Pupil Premium Funding. This is additional funding from the government that will benefit the children in our school. Please go ahead and register.
