Take a look at Northumbria Police's new recruits! Northumbria Police visited our school to present ten Year 5 pupils with their Mini Police uniforms and identification. The children successfully applied to be part of the scheme. They will work alongside Northumbria Police officers to learn more about policing and a host of topics, such as crime prevention, online safety and work in the local community. They will also attend some of the events that Northumbria Police get involved in throughout our area.

What an amazing day we had with our African friends who visited us from a small village in Kenya as part of ‘Educate the Kids’ tour of the UK. These children come from one of the poorest villages in Kenya but have been given hope by this amazing charity who support many children giving them the chance of an education, somewhere to live and food to eat - the basic rights of all children. 
Every year group in our school is sponsoring a child so that they can have the education that we all take for granted.

The end of another academic year. We are so proud of all the Castletown children and to celebrate some great achievements, we held the annual awards presentation. Joining us was former Castletown Primary headteacher Mr Hennessy and principal of Castle View Academy, Mrs Bridges.

As an end of term treat, the children headed out to the school field for a Rock Concert. We listened to some classic hits and the children showed off their dance moves.

Parents and children enjoyed an after school session with staff from Northumbria University designing, making and testing windmill sails.

Another amazing performance by our school choir, who performed an alternative fairy tale story - Happily Never After. We're very proud of our choir members and the incredible effort that went into planning and preparing the performance, which took place over two nights in June. Well done to everyone who took part and supported this incredible event!

As part of our links with Northumbria Police through the Mini Police scheme, the school was visited by the Mounted Police. Despite the rain, some of our pupils had a wonderful time getting to meet the horses and their riders.  

Sun FM came into school today in order to collect toys for their Toy Appeal. Thanks to the money raised from our Christmas Film Clubs, we've been able to buy lots of toys to help children in our area wake up to a gift on Christmas morning. Thank you.
