Carrfield Primary Academy is a primary school in the village of Bolton-upon-Dearne at the edge of the borough of Barnsley, with approximately 300 pupils from Reception to Year 6.
The Academy’s aim is to provide a stimulating learning environment which will provide opportunities for each child to develop her or his potential to the full. We intend that each child will develop self-awareness and an understanding of the world in which he or she lives. Moreover, we aim to develop positive attitudes towards learning, working together and caring about others; our aim is that children at Carrfield Primary Academy will develop the skills needed to respond creatively and appropriately in different situations. The Academy also has a strong interest in environmental education and its extensive and varied grounds provide many opportunities for first-hand study. There is an active Pupils’ Eco Committee that makes a contribution to many areas of planning and work including the curriculum.
