For parents and carers
Establishing a good partnership with parents is a priority for everyone here at Castle Academy.
We firmly believe that a successful school is a result of the combined efforts of staff, pupils, parents and carers and we encourage you to take an active role in your children’s education. We aim to be as transparent and open as possible in all we do and we welcome any questions or suggestions that you might have about your child or about Castle Academy in general. We will work hard to ensure that we communicate regularly with parents and carers and that you are always up-to-date with our activities and our plans for the future.
Parents’ evenings take place termly. The Autumn term will focus on target setting and the Spring and Summer term meetings will be reviews of progress. All children, including those in the nursery, will receive an end of year written report. Information will be shared with parents in a weekly news sheet which updates parents on attendance levels and other news. A SEN Parents Forum operates in support of parents whose children are on the SEN register.
We encourage parents to join us to learn new things or help us in a range of ways. Castle Academy exists to serve all the community to contribute to its well-being and regeneration.
