Dear Castle pupils,
Whilst school is closed there are still ways in which you can alert an adult to your worries. Below is the link to Childline which you can click and it will take you to the place where contact details are stored.

Pupil voice survey
At Castle Academy, we take our pupils’ views and opinions very seriously. We listen to how they feel so that we can make our school the best possible place for children to learn and thrive.
Each half term, all pupils across the school, complete a Pupil Voice Survey. The data from this is then collated and a detailed analysis carried out in order to inform future practice in line with our continuous commitment to improving our school.
Do you feel safe at school?
Some of the things that our pupils think we do well are:
- Providing an environment where they feel safe
- Children have adults in school who they feel confident to talk to if they feel upset or worried and are they feel they are listened to
- Children have to work hard, know what to do if they are struggling and receive support to improve their work
- 78% of children would recommend our school to other children
