We are a thriving and well situated school of approximately 275 pupils aged between 4 and 11 years. Our school is large enough to provide the resources required for a full and varied education for young children while retaining a friendly and secure atmosphere for pupils, parents and staff.
We have a very supportive governing body and an active Home School Association (HSA). The staff, the governors, the HSA and above all, the children, benefit from working together as a team and welcome your interest and involvement in the life of the school.

curriculum for all pupils.

raise their personal aspirations.

We at Castle Primary School believe that school should be a place to
which children enjoy coming because they find it offers them many
varied opportunities for success and progress in learning and living
together, in an encouraging and caring atmosphere where each child’s
contribution is valued.
The Governors of Castle Primary School are committed to a curriculum
which is broad and balanced and which promotes the spiritual, moral,
social, cultural and physical development of the pupils at the school.
We aim to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and
experiences of adult life within society.
Pupils in Foundation Class follow their own curriculum called the
Foundation Stage Curriculum. Pupils in years 1 to 6 follow the
National Curriculum which all schools must, by law, teach.
The school offers a wide range of extra curricular clubs and activities
for pupils held after school and during lunch times. A full list of these
is displayed on the notice board outside the office and ranges from
table tennis, football club, craft club, choir to gardening.
