A Message from Mr Nation

2018- 2019 has been an incredibly busy and overall, successful year for Castle Primary School. Since the last newsletter, the children have had a variety of opportunities and experiences: Bristol Residential, water play at Forest School sessions, the Year 5 children attended the County Hall in Somerset for an Environmental Strategy Meeting (where they presented their ideas and opinions on how to improve travel and transport in regards to the environment) and some of our Year 3 children attended a Maths Quiz at Buckland St. Mary Primary School. Whether it was comments from the general public whilst in Bristol, or feedback from members of County Hall - it is apparent that the children of Castle School have been role model pupils no matter where they are. A huge well done to all the children for being so marvellous. 

Sports Day was a huge success. Thank you to everyone for coming along and supporting your children. It was unfortunate that we had to pick up so much litter at the end of the session which had been left where spectators were sat. At school, we ensure we’re teaching the children about respecting our environment; can I please urge you all to model this at home as well. My thanks to those of you who tidied after themselves. I’ve been made aware that there has been some anti-social behaviour taking place at the recreation ground near the new developments. The police are aware. Please ensure your child/children are not involved. The new facilities will be available to the general public soon. 

We have a huge amount of Lost Property. This is the final call before it goes to the local charity shop.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer holiday.

A Message from Mr Morton

What a year we have at our school. It seems like only yesterday that I was welcomed back into the Buckland family and in to the Castle one too! I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with amazing teachers and delightful children everyday. It doesn’t matter which school site I find myself on (often more than one in a day) I am always greeted with beaming smiles and welcoming words. It really does make my heart sing. We have had a rollercoaster of a year in terms of closures, illness and general ups and downs but you have all dug in and made each day worthwhile. I think we have all shown our true Somerset spirit! Thank you to you all. Castle Primary School and all of its wonderful village idiosyncrasies have begun to blossom again after 2 years on hold. Having a brass band accompany our children under the twinkling lights as they sang Christmas carols was a delight and then to parade around the village wearing our finest Easter bonnets was a thing to behold. Add in a full circus organised by our FoCS team for the whole village to enjoy which raised over £3000 towards the reopening of our pool and you can see why we are all so exhausted! I look forward to the many more celebrations, festivals and events that the school and local community bring together for us to be part of. Thank you everyone for your support and commitment to our school. Year 6 you leave us to start your next adventures. We know that you will all make the right choices and make our world a better place for having each and everyone of you in it. Be amazing! (and remember that we don’t talk about the lions!!!!!) Mrs Chant you leave us after over 30 years of service to our school. We thank you for your love and commitment to our staff and children. Enjoy your next adventure too! A big thank you to Mrs Campbell who is stepping down from FoCS after 20 years of fundraising and coordinating our out of school events. We are very grateful for all of your support.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
