CELEBRATING CANTRELL'S CARNIVAL
The link below celebrates the four-year partnership between Cantrell &
City Arts and the work we have produced together.
This partnership will continue into the future.
The work has been a huge success and we want to share this journey with you.
Cantrell's Whole School Carnival
Latest School Meals Information
At Cantrell we communicate with every family using ClassDojo.
ClassDojo is an interactive reward system that allows you to see how your children are getting on in school. After you have signed up, you will be able to see what your child is doing in school through the ‘Class Story’ feature.
INTRODUCTION TO SHAKESPEARE. Next half-term our whole school will have a focus on two of William Shakespeare’s plays. EYFS will be introduced to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Key Stage 1 & 2 will focus on Twelfth Night. For the next few weeks we will introduce our families to these two famous plays. We hope this will help you to engage with the teaching and learning your children will be experiencing. Our Carnival will feature elements of both plays.
NURSERY PLACES AVAILABLE. If you have a two, three or four-year-old child, we now have FREE nursery places available. Our Early Years provision is consistently rated Good by Ofsted. We also have 30 hours places for families with eligibility. Please ring 0115 9155770 to book a visit. We look forward to meeting you.

Our website is designed to introduce you to our remarkable Cantrell community. Visitors often comment on the special atmosphere they find here. It is a friendly and welcoming place where children feel secure and supported – the perfect environment for learning. We encourage all our children to think creatively, set themselves high standards and to work hard to achieve their full potential.
Contexts for learning are meaningful, modern, motivating and challenging so that our children take great pride in their learning. Our children have positive attitudes; they are confident, well-mannered and well-behaved and they genuinely care about each other, further fostering values and ethos which are evident for all to see.
Our school motto, ‘Harmony Through Working Together’ encapsulates our approach and the belief and value we place in every single one of our children.
We know choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent. Close links between home and school are really important to us. We develop close relationships with our parents and families throughout their time here. We work to ensure each child is happy and fulfilled and through talking to and listening to you, we can ensure your child makes the most of their talents and potential.
