Welcome to our School
Wishing all our families a wonderful summer. School is now closed for the summer. The children return on Wednesday 3rd September (teacher days Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd September 2014).
Castlefort JMI School is a co-educational primary school for children aged between 3 and 11 years. Our Nursery provision ‘Sandcastles’ admits children the term after their 3rd birthday, up to a maximum of 26 children in each morning and afternoon session. Children transfer to Reception in the September after their 4th birthday.
Parents/carers considering or wishing to admit their children to our school are welcome to visit at any time to collect registration forms. We actively encourage parents/carers and their child/children to view our school prior to admission. Please contact Mrs Stanton in the school office to arrange a visit or discuss admission arrangements.
Class teachers are responsible for the normal day-to-day welfare of the children in their classes. Parents/carers should therefore contact the class teacher in the first instance with any questions or concerns they may have. Should parents/carers wish further clarification, they are very welcome to contact the Headteacher (Mrs Wilson) or Deputy Headteacher (Mrs Locke).
We hold termly consultation times with parents/carers but if you feel you need to contact school in the meantime, please do not hesitate to do so. At the end of the school year each child receives a written report detailing their progress throughout the year.
Each Friday we hold a celebration assembly which aims to recognise the achievements of pupils both in and out of school. ‘In-school’ achievement awards include: ‘Star of the Week’ in recognition of academic progress; ‘Budding Author’ award for showing fantastic writing; ‘Kind and Thoughtful’ awards for showing acts of kindness and being thoughtful to others; ‘Attendance Award’ for the class with the highest attendance figure that week and ‘Spick and Span’ award for the smartest class! Parents are invited to join us for this assembly.
Our expectations of children’s behaviour are explained in the ‘Home and School Agreement’. This describes our expectations from parents/carers and their child/children, together with what they can expect from us as a school. Parents/carers are always notified if a child’s behaviour becomes a concern. We are opposed to bullying, intolerance, abuse and discrimination of any sort and actively implement school policies to ensure that these issues are rigorously addressed should they arise.
