Welcome To Castilion Primary School
On behalf of the school community, I would like to welcome you to our school. The school aims to create a safe, supportive environment where there are high expectations of each child and each child is able to develop in their educational studies and their personal qualities.
We believe that learning should be exciting. We also recognise that learning may be hard work that needs persistence and determination but children should be provided with the tools they need to progress regardless of starting point or background.
We believe that education should take place in a fully inclusive environment with equal opportunities for all and that all children should learn to value religious and cultural differences. As a Rights Respecting School, we put the UN Convention on the rights of the child at the heart of our planning, policies, practice and ethos, to enable children to develop as global citizens. We firmly believe that the UNICEF reflects the beliefs of our school community.
Our vision and values are fundamental expressions of what we think and believe.
Equality - ensuring that every individual child has an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives and talents.
Dignity - being respected for the children that they are and what they believe in.
Respect - treating other children in the way they would like to be treated, and acknowledging the thoughts and opinions of other children.
Our mission supports wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem
Engage - children have better relationships
Enthuse - children feel safe and are healthy and happy
Empower - children become active and involved in school life and the wider world
