Welcome to Carlton School
This website has been developed to enable visitors to become familiar with our school, its policies and programs and receive updated information on school news and events.
Our school motto is ‘Working together to succeed as lifelong learners.’
Our current Site Improvement Priorities include Literacy, Numeracy and Student Wellbeing:- with raising attendance as a major emphasis. We have a strong commitment to Literacy and Numeracy improvement and invest heavily in support programs and quality resources for students and professional development for staff. In the area of Student Wellbeing we have been involved in the SMG Wellbeing Classroom program to build students’ confidence in expressing their feelings and maintaining a positive attitude for learning, provide a Tuck Shop menu for healthy snacks at recess and a quality lunch at a low cost to families, the DOJO shop for encouragement of engagement in learning and recognition for effort, Health and Physical Education lessons as part of the Australian Curriculum, the Child Protection Curriculum and SHINE related lessons for building student understanding about sexual health. The school offers a “ PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS” program to engage students in Junior Secondary Years 7-9. The school offers an Adnyamathanha language program for all students.
We join in the partnership of schools offerings for SAPSASA, and Transition programs run between the Preschool and School, and Port Augusta Secondary. Carlton School is proud to offer a quality education to our community of learners and is committed to improving engagement and achievement for all of our students. Whole school processes for literacy and numeracy and investigation into the best intervention programs to build learner achievement remain a priority for the staff and leadership team of the school. We continue to aim to build a strong Governing Council and encourage parents across the School and Preschool to join our team of councillors.
Many families have past connections with the school and are happy to have their children enrolled here for learning. The school fosters strong family connections with the school and its programs. Our You Can Do It focus reminds us about “Getting Along, Confidence, Persistence, Resilience and Organisation “ as central to our school culture
The leadership team is committed to making Carlton K-9 school a great place to work and learn. I invite you to browse the website and discover more.
