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.

    Afternoon parents please note that school is open as usual tomorrow other than the year group who have been told they need to self isolate. We are continuing to follow the advice from Public Health England and if there any changes we will let you know.

    Thank you parents it was great to see the vast majority of you wearing face masks at the end of the school day.

    @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 🙂
