Welcome to Castle Wood Academy.
Welcome to Castle Wood Academy. We officially opened in September 2015 and this year we are offering places in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2. Eventually we will be a through primary school going right up to Year 6.
Our building is spacious, bright and airy and we are in the enviable position of creating the learning spaces and environments that best meet the children's needs.
Joining me in leading the school's journey this year is Mrs C Taylor, who is the Assistant Head of School as well as being our outstanding lead practitioner for Early Years across the Trust. Mrs Taylor works alongside the class teachers to ensure we continue her high standards at Castle Wood Academy. She was praised by Ofsted for having 'consistently outstanding teaching' and her leadership was described as 'excellent'. 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.
As well as outstanding teaching through a creative themed curriculum, we plan educational visits and have visitors into school, as we believe that these are some of the most memorable experiences of a child's school life. We pride ourselves on our ability to help every child in our care to reach their full potential, regardless of their starting point. Through our consistently high standards and high expectations alongside a personalised learning approach, every child has the best opportunity possible to grow.
We like to work closely with parents and welcome you into school as we believe that partnership is key to making school a happy place for your child. You will have many opportunities to share in their education and celebrate their achievements.
If you would like to arrange a visit to Castle Wood Academy, please ring and make an appointment. We are always keen to showcase the excellent work that we do here.
Mrs S Wilson, Executive Headteacher
