The end of term…
…and an era!

There were weeks when just keeping the school open was an achievement in itself and, in many ways, this year has been the toughest yet since the pandemic began.

Despite this, we have had an incredible year with so many memories made!

And it ended with not 1, not 2, BUT 10 staff moving on!

We wish a very happy retirement to Mrs Dalley, Mrs Durie, Mrs Grierson, Mrs Roxburgh and our Queen, Mrs Matear!

We also wish the very best of luck to those staff leaving us including Mrs Rickis, Mr Morrison, Miss Martin, Ms Hussain and Miss Inglis.

In true Carrick Knowe style, a music video has been produced too. This year it was dedicated to someone who has spent the last 32 years looking after the whole Carrick Knowe community – Mrs Matear.

And we can’t forget our 43 x P7 pupils who are heading off to High School too! They ended their time at Carrick Knowe by putting on a spectacular Harry Potter themed assembly and we were able to get back to normal with t-shirt signing, yearbook signing and being piped out through the school corridors on the final day!

The P7 Quali

It’s been three years since our last one but it was back!

Sports Day 2022!

The Queen’s
Platinum Jubilee!

We hope you all had an enjoyable extra-long weekend. Here are just a few pictures from our week of celebrations at Carrick Knowe. There’s also a nice little video from P5/6.

We also couldn’t resist adding in a picture of the Queen and her new best friend… Paddington!

We Love To Learn Outdoors!

Last Thursday it was Outdoor Classroom Day

…but at Carrick Knowe, taking our learning outdoors is nothing new!

Whether it’s writing, maths, being creative with loose parts or exploring our environment,

Here are some of the things we’ve been doing just this week!


Played 3 Won 3
Job Done

A huge well done to our P6/P7 football team who took part in the first round of the Inspectors Cup this week. And after winning all three games, it’s safe to say we are through to the next round.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to one of our parents, Shaun Jack, who coaches the team!

“The day was Wednesday 11th March 2020 and the whole school were sat in the hall watching the P6/P7 Show!”

NEVER did we think that it would be another 2 YEARS, 1 MONTH, 2 WEEKS and 4 DAYS until we were able to get back in the hall for our next assembly!

So today was a very special milestone for Carrick Knowe and hopefully a sign of more normal times ahead. We were all very excited but nobody more so than Miss Inglis – it has been her hard work over the past 2 years that has ensured we’ve all had a virtual assembly to watch every Friday.

and she even made her own special t-shirt to mark the occasion!

2022 So Far!

It’s the end of the Spring term and to celebrate all of the many successes – we’ve created a 3 minute video!
