A rural forest school
Our breath-taking rural location is embraced by the school, including use of local woodland to support our high-quality forest school provision. Pupils talk passionately about their local community and its heritage and are also aspirational about their future plans.

We believe that all children should have regular opportunities to engage in outdoor learning.
Our forest school provision provides opportunities for children to develop a wide range of skills, as shown in the document below.
We are fortunate to have extensive grounds, hiding behind our school building, which include tiered gardens with a pond, greenhouse, forest school area, quiet zone and adventure playground. Within these areas, our pupils have frequent opportunities to observe wildlife (we have an owl box and bird houses), learn across different curriculum areas and much more!

Our staff are committed to providing a wealth of opportunities to all pupils. Our broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum is grounded in the locality and we pride ourselves on having strong community links. Pupils are provided with a wide range of extra-curricular activities, excellent resources - including 1:1 iPads – and daily access to our extensive school grounds. Pupils have regular swimming lessons and have the opportunity to compete in cross-school events linked to sports, technology and the Arts. We offer instrumental lessons taught by a peripatetic teacher and we are currently working towards the Arts Award Discover. Many pupils enjoy taking on leadership responsibilities, including being a school council representative.

We are proud to be a founding member of the Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust and opportunities to work collaboratively with pupils from other schools within the Trust are actively planned into the school year. We ensure that pupils from our small village community have opportunities to develop confidence and build relationships with their peers beyond Castleton, in preparation for their eventual transition to secondary school.

Staff have high expectations of all pupils and are keen to develop their resilience, independence and communication skills. Staff, pupils, parents and governors have worked together to create a set of oaths, which aim to enhance pupils’ broader development during their time at Castleton in order to ensure that all pupils are effectively prepared for the next stage of their educational journey.
