A Message from Mr Nation

I’d like to thank every member of staff at Castle Primary for their unwavering commitment to the children at our wonderful school. The children’s positive and encouraging start to 2020-2021 is down to the team’s determination to make the return to school a positive experience for each and every child.  Thanks to Mr Heath-Coleman (Estates and Contracts Manager), Castle had a new boiler, pipework and radiators installed throughout the school building during the summer holidays. Despite the expected disruption this caused, the class environments are looking wonderful. They’re clean, tidy and organised with lots of evidence of learning that is taking place across the curriculum. The teachers and support staff have worked tirelessly to ensure we hit the ground running in 2020 and we have certainly accomplished our goal!  Forest School is in full swing as is quality PE provision for all of our children at Castle Primary School. Life in bubbles is certainly different but it has not stopped the children and staff striving to achieve excellence in everything we do.  Our Discovery Project this term has been focusing on art and I have to say there is an impressive array of artwork across the school. Mrs Staniland is Art Lead across the Trust and she has ensured we have all the necessary materials to allow the children to develop their skills and expertise as ‘artists’. The children have once again excelled themselves.   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
Parents' Evening Information Posted on: 23/10/2020

Parents' Evening Information

Dear parents/carers,    Due to Coronavirus restrictions, we will hold the forthcoming Parents’ Evening via Zoom. We would like to encourage everyone to book an appointment with their child’s/children’s teacher so that we have a chance to discuss how your child is progressing in school and how we can work together to do the very best for them. If it is difficult for you to join via Zoom for any reason, contact the school office for the attention of your child’s class teacher.    These meetings are a vital part of your child’s education and contribute towards their happiness at school and their progress in education. If you would also like to speak with Mr Nation (Executive Head of School), Mrs Liddell (Assistant Head of School) and/or Mrs Sandiford (School SENDCo), please contact the school office.    In keeping with our Risk Assessments and Home School Agreement, all sessions will be recorded and we ask you to ensure that if you choose to have your camera on, that the environment is suitable and non-offensive.    Below is a link to a Google Form. Please follow the corresponding link for your child’s class and complete the form. You must enter your child’s full name and choose 3 preferred time slots. We will do our best to accommodate a time close to your selection. Please complete one form per child, even if your children are in the same class. All Google Forms must be completed by Monday 2nd November 0800. You will then receive a message with the link to the Zoom Meeting and your approximate meeting time by Friday 6th November. For those classes with more than 30 children who are fully subscribed, teachers will contact you to arrange a suitable time.    Parents of Nursery children will receive information about parents evenings after half term.    As always, should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office.
