I WOULD like to take the opportunity to celebrate success by congratulating the team at Castledown School for the hugely positive Ofsted report, and thanking them for the amount of hard work and dedication it reflects.
The school is an exciting place to visit, with evidence of a broad and balanced curriculum and the pupils love of learning clearly displayed on every wall.
The new state-of-the-art library will ensure that every child is keen to read, and the pupil-run cafe is a perfect setting for establishing links with families and the wider community. Parents are encouraged to get involved at every opportunity, and even the school newsletter is a good read every Friday.
All of my children have happy memories of this school; this is the first time since inspections were introduced that the report is an accurate expression of how my child feels every day.
