At Castledown, we are proud of the work we have done to achieve a positive result with our most recent Ofsted report. If you would like to read it, please Click Here.

Our most recent Ofsted was published in October 2013. Here are some quotes from the report:

“Pupils overall attainment have risen at a faster rate than found nationally.”

“Pupils enjoy learning and make good progress in a range of subjects, including history and science.”

“Teachers have high expectations of pupils in terms of both work and behaviour.”

“The school is a happy and harmonious community in which pupils from different backgrounds relate well to each other.”

“Pupils are proud of their work and are eager to show examples of it to visitors.”

“The Headteacher, working closely with the Deputy Headteacher, is passionately committed to ensuring that the school provides the best possible education for its pupils.”

“The local authority recognises correctly that the school has the capacity to improve without extra help.”
