I am extremely proud to be the Head-teacher of Belmont Castle Academy, a school which has achieved a great deal of success in recent years. Not only do we have an excellent track record when it comes to academic progress, we have also gained an enviable reputation when it comes to sporting achievement.

    Dear parents, every Friday I will be phoning or speaking to at least one child from each year group who has really impressed their teacher, with their remote learning or in their work in school. I have just finished doing my calls for today 🤗

    Reading Eggs are offering a free 30 day trial with access to phonics, reading, spellings and maths games.  The children complete an assessment before starting so it's aimed at their level and is available up to 13-year-olds. Here's the link: https://t.co/uDnVjJikJZ

    Good afternoon parents, just a reminder that remote learning for all other than critical (key) worker children and those defined as vulnerable will fully commence from tomorrow. You should have all received the crib sheets and other log in information this afternoon. 🧐

    Even though there might be a pandemic it didn’t stop Santa visiting every class today. Sadly he couldn’t go into the classrooms but at least all the children got to see him. For those children who are not in school today due to self isolating, he has left a little gift for them. https://t.co/ieDitKbRLe

    Good morning parents and carers just to let you know that Ofsted will be doing a remote visit today via MS Teams. They have stressed that it’s not an inspection but a fact finding exercise, seeing how schools are coping with the pandemic and what measures are in place.
