Carisbrooke CE Primary School

Enjoy, Endeavour, Achieve, Together


Joy in learning is a mark of a good teacher and a well taught pupil. The book of Proverbs (8:30-31) poetically imagines wisdom playing before God at creation. Play and playfulness are part of a full life, and any education that does not communicate joy, wonder, amazement, fascination and delight has failed.

ENJOY at Carisbrooke CE Primary means;

  • Showing positivity and hope in every aspect of the life and workings of our school.
  • Celebrating the uniqueness and talents of each individual.
  • Being joyful and generous in our love and treatment of others.
  • Appreciating the richness and diversity of God’s creation.
  • Inspiring and channelling each child’s, and staff’s, creativity.


To endeavour is to recognise that life is sometimes difficult and painful, but that it is important not to give up in the face of adversity- just as Jesus in his teachings and life showed us.

  • Building an understanding of which things have enduring value.
