Queen Elizabeth II

We are very sad to hear the news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II today.  Our thoughts are with her family at this time.  The Queen was an example to us all of public service, honour and dignity.

Following the death of Her Majesty The Queen, The Redstart Learning Partnership and its 10 schools, at the expressed wish of His Majesty The King, will follow a period of Royal Mourning to be observed from now until the Queen's funeral (the funeral date to be confirmed).  

Mrs Suzanne Flack, CEO of The Redstart Learning Partnership (TRLP) will leave a floral tribute at the gates of Buckingham Palace on behalf of TRLP.  

Our schools will not be following any particular behaviours during this period however, there may be a number of changes to our planned events and communications. Schools will remain open and normal attendance will be expected.  Special activities, assemblies and lessons may be adapted to reflect the period of national mourning.  Books of condolence will be open at a number of our schools to commemorate the life of Her Majesty. 

May Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II rest in peace and rise in glory.

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
