A Message from Mr Nation

Last week, I showed two visitors around Castle School. One is a head teacher of a school in Somerset and the other, the Chair of Governors. As always, I felt immensely proud listening to some of the wonderful comments about how courteous and polite the children are and what a great atmosphere there is around the school. Thank you to those who came along to meet Mrs Liddell on Tuesday. For those of you who couldn't make it, we will be available to meet you in the school hall on Wednesday 27th March at 9:00 am. Mrs Liddell has spent time at school this week getting to know the staff and children as well as teaching Drogo. I’m looking forward to her support as we continue to improve the standard of education we offer at our wonderful school. We are currently below our attendance target for the year. Please ensure your child is arriving at school on time and is in class by 8:55 am. If you wish to discuss your child/children’s attendance, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via the school office. Can I remind parents/carers not to smoke outside the school gates. It sends the wrong message to the children and is unpleasant for everyone. Thank you all for your understanding with this. Thank you to Mrs Morris for taking the time to make pancakes with all the children in the school. They have thoroughly enjoyed their time and the pancakes smell delicious!  Finally, I'm delighted to inform everyone that a Year 2 child's writing of Castle School has been chosen to be included in a 'Year 2 Assessing Primary Writing Exemplars Report'. This is one of 15 texts out of thousands that will be used to help schools across the country in their teaching and learning. The child will remain anonymous but this is a fantastic achievement!   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

I know all the parents, carers and children will have noticed all the extra effort the Castle Team have put in over the past two weeks. They always go over and above and it doesn't go unnoticed. They have organised and attended many after school events that it is easy to forget that they too have families at home! Cross Country, Stargazing, Youth Speaks, Bikeability, training and courses that were held after school hours, clubs and Castle's very own performance of Peter Pan - all in two weeks! That's as well as their day job! Thank you Castle Team on behalf of everyone.  What a busy start to the second half of the Spring Term. Bikeability was a huge success last week. The children represented Castle School brilliantly and were a credit to themselves. Not only were the children inspired to cycle more, Mrs Abbott and Miss Dodge were also full of joy having spent two days on their bicycles! Thank you to Mrs Knobbs, Mrs Abbott, Miss Dodge and Mrs Szarmach for organising and assisting with this important event. Mrs Szarmach has also been busy behind the scenes organising Forest School sessions with the Ham Hill Rangers. Some of the children have the opportunity to go to Ham Hill and carve their initials into a wooden leaf to finish their project on the natural playground near Fairy Glen. What a great way to make their mark for years to come! Mr Penn organised for a company to come to Castle last week and hold a performance based on e-safety. It was an engaging and thought provoking session. Please continue to support your child to be safe online, even when they’re playing games with their friends. Finally, a huge thank you to all who supported and attended the Stargazing evening last Wednesday. It was a fantastic event and the staff went over and above as always. A BIG THANK YOU to Mr Main for all his help this week. As you all know, Charlie gives up much of his time for the children (and staff) at Castle and we're very grateful.   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
