Community

We aim to work in partnership with parents and be an active part of our church and village community. Children’s needs are best served when school and home work together. We ask parents to support their child’s learning at home through reading and various homework activities.

Many parents and grandparents are able to help in school in various ways and the staff appreciate offers of help, e.g. hearing readers, participating in educational visits, sharing experiences in history and geography.

The school likes to play an active part in the community and to help children to realise their responsibilities to the neighbourhood and beyond. Children take part in various activities such as drama productions for The Evergreens, carol singing at the annual Christmas Tree event and donating food to a local homeless shelter during Harvest Festival celebrations. Pupils often suggest charitable acts themselves (such as Children in Need and Comic Relief) and will arrange events together.

We are supported by the Friends of Castor School, who organise fundraising for our children and donate considerable amounts of money to enrich their experiences at school throughout the year.  You can read more about them on their website page by following this link.
