From Monday 27 September until Friday 8 October, Carew Academy will not be receiving external visitors as we enter a period of COVID contingency planning.

We are very keen to keep our open mornings running – 21 October is currently running as planned and any further updates will be posted here.

Literacy and Numeracy

Carew Academy promotes the development of Literacy and Numeracy Skills across all three of our Pathways.

Whilst we do not have Key Stage 1 students at Carew Academy, many of our learners access a Key Stage 1 Curriculum.  We use the DfE Letters and Sounds Programme across the whole school to promote development of Literacy Skills:

In addition, we use the Accelerated Reader Programme to support our Lower School students to make progress in Reading, encouraging them to read widely and often:

It is crucial that our students develop their Numeracy Skills across all subjects and we actively promote the teaching of numeracy and mental maths across all subjects and whenever opportunities arise around the school:

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
