Admissions & Uniform

We have places!!!

We are a fantastic Church of England rural school with so many wonderful resources and space that the children can enjoy.   We currently have spaces in the Nursery and the rest of the school.   Come and have a look at our nurturing environment and if you would like your child to come and join in our love of learning - see how below!

Starting School

Starting School should be a fabulous experience for both your children and you, as parents.   At Carlton CofE Primary and Nursery,  we aim to help you through this transition so that you can maximise your experience.   We strongly recommend that you come and visit us during school time so you can meet our wonderful staff, happy children and fantastic school grounds. 

For all Admissions to our lovely school, you must go through the Bedford Borough website: 

We welcome all new starters from Nursery (2 years old)  right through to Year 6 (11 years old).  

We thoroughly advise a visit to our wonderful school, so that you and your children can see how fantastic your experience here could be. 

To book a visit, please call the office on 01234 720281 and ask to speak to Lynne Pinfold (Office Manager) or Jo Bevis (Headteacher).   


We currently have a few spaces in some of our year groups. If you would like your child to join us midway through the school year from another school, you will need to apply through Bedford Borough Council using the link.
