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.

    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.

    We are horrified by the new game #Cunchlinechronicles This game is shocking as it glamourises Gangs, Drugs and #ChildExploitation Please make sure your children go no where near this 😥https://t.co/6KKNwzlahJ

    @SilkSteven Today was especially bad because of the rain. We did open the main gates to ease things. We will look at this again tomorrow.

    Dear parents due to concerns raised by both parents and staff about the lack of social distancing at drop off and pick up times, I am now requesting that all parents on the school premises need to wear a face mask. Thank you for your continued support.

    A message for our Reception parents. I’m going to suggest that you can pick up your child between 2.30 and 2.45pm from Monday onwards. This is to help parents who have children in other year groups.

    Message for Reception parents and a little clarification regarding the 2.30pm pick up. This will only be a temporary arrangement. I am hopeful that if things run smoothly the following week we can push it back to 2.45pm.
  • Belmont Castle Academy @bca_thurrock, Sep 22
    Dear Reception parents I hope you found the pick up today a lot smoother. The vast majority of children, over 90% had all been collected within two minutes. Thank you parents for working with us. From tomorrow drop off will be done in the new Reception playground 🙂
