Welcome to Castle Wood Academy. This school is a very special place.
I am so excited and proud to have the pleasure of being Head of School and work with your lovely children everyday! As Head of School, I would like to continue our ethos of being a friendly community school, where families are encouraged to learn together and give their children the confidence to succeed.
This is our third year of providing a high standard of education to all our children. All the adults who work here at Castle Wood are fully committed to providing the absolute best education for our children, and they understand the power that a good education can have, and what a child needs to give them the best start in life. We believe every child in school should be treated as if they were our own.
We are proud of our children and all their achievements, as we are proud of our staff.
I would like to thank Mrs Taylor, who will continue as Assistant Head of School as well as being our outstanding lead practitioner for Early Years across the Trust. Mrs Taylor will continue to support staff to ensure we continue with high standards not just at Castle Wood Academy, but at other schools in the Trust. As well as the committed class teachers, we will also have a number of additional staff to support the children, ensuring there is a strong team of dedicated professionals providing the very best learning for your child.
Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of our children and provides a broad and balanced range of learning opportunities. We also provide trips and learning experiences outside of school, as we believe that these are some of the most memorable experiences of a child's school life. We recognise that every child is an individual, different and unique. Our expectations of the children are high, and we expect high standards of achievement and behaviour.
Parents are essential in terms of making sure a child’s education is successful, and we welcome parents into school and enjoy sharing the children’s achievements and successes. Visitors to Castle Wood Academy are always welcome, and we are always keen to show off the many great things about our school. If you would like to arrange a visit please ring and make an appointment.
Mr. Gary Brown
Head of School
