What is it like to attend this school?

Our staff are committed to providing a wealth of opportunities to all pupils. Our broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum is grounded in the locality and we pride ourselves on having strong community links. Pupils are provided with a wide range of extra-curricular activities, excellent resources - including 1:1 iPads – and daily access to our extensive school grounds. Pupils have regular swimming lessons and have the opportunity to compete in cross-school events linked to sports, technology and the Arts. We offer instrumental lessons taught by a peripatetic teacher and we are currently working towards the Arts Award Discover. In Key Stage 2, children have weekly French lessons taught by a specialist teacher from a local secondary school. Many pupils enjoy taking on leadership responsibilities, including being a school council representative, leading on our work towards the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award.

We are proud to be a founding member of the Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust and opportunities to work collaboratively with pupils from other schools within the Trust are actively planned into the school year. We ensure that pupils from our small village community have opportunities to develop confidence and build relationships with their peers beyond Castleton, in preparation for their eventual transition to secondary school. 

Our breath-taking rural location is embraced by the school, including use of local woodland to support our high-quality forest school provision. Pupils talk passionately about their local community and its heritage and are also aspirational about their future plans.

Staff have high expectations of all pupils and are keen to develop their resilience, independence and communication skills. Staff, pupils, parents and governors have worked together to create a set of oaths, which aim to enhance pupils’ broader development during their time at Castleton in order to ensure that all pupils are effectively prepared for the next stage of their educational journey.
