Castle Primary School
Castle Primary School started construction
in 1890 under new legislation from the Wolstanton School Board.
Much has changed since then, I went to
visit on Monday 1st October 2007 and to see exactly how the school is doing.
I also couldn't help to notice that a lot of work has been done on the building, the brickwork had been pointed up and the old Herring Bone pattern wooden floors had been stripped back and re varnished. I asked Mrs. Lowe about funding and where the money came from. There is apparently lots of different grants out there for schools, and all head teachers have to do is bid for them. One of the grants was from the Community Learning Partnership, these would provide the funds if the school got involved in a community project, this lead to the dragon on the wall.
The school is very much community oriented
and twice a year they have days when the children can bring a special person
the Lunch, this usually takes place around Mothers Day and Harvest time. I
do know that there is bring a Grandparents to Lunch on Monday 8th and 15th
|Castle Primary school boasts 93 pupils with 19 of these in the reception class, this should mean the numbers attending to school will remain high and could even go up. With Mrs. Lowe there are 6 other full time teachers and many support staff including teaching assistants.
