Service of Thanksgiving

A Service of Thanksgiving for our much loved pupil, Carter Carson, will be held on Tuesday 10th April. We are aware that many parents, pupils and staff will want to attend the service and therefore school will be closed on Tuesday as our whole school community takes time to remember Carter.

Whilst it is not compulsory, it would be appropriate for pupils attending the service to wear school uniform.

Wednesday 4th April
The Governors and staff of Abbots Cross Primary School would like to thank everyone who attended the school this morning to sign the Book of Memories for Carter Carson.
Family, pupils, parents, friends and staff took comfort from the time together to share precious memories of a very special boy.
Staff, parents and professionals will continue to work together to support our children as we prepare for their return to school on Monday.

Book of Memories for Carter Carson
In memory of our much loved pupil, Carter Carson, a Book of Memories will be opened on Wednesday 4th April in Abbots Cross Primary School. Pupils, their family members and friends from the community are invited to come into school between 10am and 12 noon on Wednesday to sign the Book and spend some time together.


Statement from Abbots Cross Primary School Principal, Joanne Griffith

The whole school community of Abbots Cross Primary School is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of one of our pupils, Carter Carson.

Carter was a quiet, hardworking boy with lovely manners and a gentle, caring nature. He loved a game of football and was an enthusiastic member of our school running club and our football club. He was recently our star pupil of the month and no one had a bigger smile than Carter when he received his Star Pupil Award.

The relevant agencies are working with the school to ensure that appropriate support is put in place for our pupils, parents and teachers as we try to deal with losing Carter in these tragic circumstances.

School will be opened later this week for parents and pupils to come in, sign a Book of Memories for Carter and spend some time together.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Carter’s immediate and wider family circle and we, as a Primary School family, will do all we can to support them and Carter’s many friends in school in the weeks and months ahead.
