Our School Information


At Carrick Knowe we try to live by our values; Kindness, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility

These values were formed in 2019 after consultation with our parents, staff, children and local community. We’ll be doing lots more work on these in class and during assemblies in the next year or so.
