On behalf of everyone at Castle Hill Primary School, I would like to welcome you and your child to our school and hope that you have a happy, exciting and productive learning journey with us.
We are a busy, but friendly school, with lots going on. Our aim is to work in partnership with parents, to build on the experiences and skills you have already developed with your child at home. Everyone at Castle Hill has high standards and expectations in all we do. We take enormous pride in the fact that we always do our best in terms of social, sporting, creative and academic achievements. We believe every member of the Castle Hill Community; pupils, parents, staff, governors and supporting professionals have a vital role to play in ensuring our school is the very best it can be, this means we all routinely go ‘that extra mile’. At Castle Hill we work hard to provide a stimulating, supportive and challenging learning environment, in which children feel confident and want to learn and do their best. We believe that every single child wants to succeed and has the potential to achieve great things, when those around them work together to raise aspirations and create a culture of achievement and success. We aim to meet the needs of each individual by ensuring that we provide pupils with the opportunities, support, challenge and encouragement needed to develop their social, emotional, creative, academic and physical abilities to the full.
At Castle Hill we talk a lot about Success, that’s because we genuinely think it is important. We believe that if the children of today are to meet the challenges of tomorrow and embrace the changing world they are growing into, one we cannot fully imagine, they will need not only excellent basic skills such as reading, writing, mathematics and computing skills; but they will also need to develop a range of other attributes such as the ability to work alongside others, know how to reflect on their own learning, be able to find creative solutions to problems, ask the right questions, and above all be resilient, self-motivated individuals with GUMPTION! We are committed to developing these qualities in an inclusive climate that promotes respect, confidence and responsibility. Castle Hill is here for its pupils, they are central to all we do; we believe children who know how to enjoy being successful at school will go on to become their own success stories later in life.
We want your child to flourish and feel happy and secure during their time with us because Castle Hill is a place where aspirations and ambitions come true. We work hard to keep our motto which is ‘Learning to Succeed and Succeeding to Learn’, central to all we do and hope you will too, as we believe much more becomes possible when we work in partnership together so every child can be given the best possible start to their education and what we hope will become their life-long learning journey.
We hope you will enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information here that you are looking for. If you have any queries or comments please contact the school direct and we will be pleased to talk to you and arrange a time for you to visit.
Thank you for visiting.
