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!
