SLC School Clothing Grants

We are GOLD! (added 01/10/19)
We are thrilled to announce that we have been successful in achieving our GOLD award from Sport Scotland.  This is a huge achievement and a credit to our team of staff, pupils, parents and partners.  We are very grateful for the very positive links we have had (and continue to have) with Active Schools over the years and for the positive parternships we have, which have played a vital role in this achievement.  Special thanks to our wonderful Mrs Whitehead for doing such a great job of compiling our evidence, for our GOLD award submission.  Great job, everyone!  Keep up the great work.

Team Carstairs MacMillan Fundraiser - 26 September 2019 (added 22/09/19)
Thank you to our families and amazing community for the great support that we received at our first ever Family Fun Run and Coffee Morning.  We always enjoy fab support at our MacMillan Coffee Morning, but it was lovely to welcome our families along today to participate in the Fun Run aspect of the day, as well as enjoy refreshments in our school hall.  Your support helped us to raise an amazing £416 for MacMillan Cancer Research.  What a great total!

A special well done to our 'Painted Rocks' Team and our 'Bracelets' Team - groups of pupils who asked if they could give up their own time to make a variety of creative goods to sell for 50p a pop, to add extra to our MacMillan pot.  

Thank you to LIDL, Lanark, for the donations we received in support of this event. 

Well done to all team members - pupils, parents and staff - for an awesome job on our first big school event of the session.  We look forward to many more special days this session!  Check out our gallery section on our website for some action shots of the outdoor activities that went on in aid of MacMillan.

Our school vision statement is - ‘Be safe, be happy, be all you can be’.  We value effort, respect, confidence and kindness.  As a whole school community, working with passion, enthusiasm and drive, we are absolutely and relentlessly committed to ensuring that this vision and these values are fully realised by our learners.

We operate an open door policy.  Our team believes strongly in the benefits of partnership working, in aiming to provide the best possible education for your child.   We believe whole-heartedly, in the power of partnerships with our parents and families, in order to help our learners achieve their maximum potential.
