Welcome

I would like to welcome you to the Castledyke Primary School Website. Our school is in Barton Upon Humber in the county of North Lincolnshire. We have children aged from three to eleven years old attending our school. We like to think that we are a little bit urban, and a little bit rural, in a large part modern, but with a lot of history!

On this website you should be able to gain a bit of a taster of the sorts of things that the school offers and a feeling of what our school is all about.

We believe that Castledyke is a very caring school. This is what our children and our parents tell us! The staff work hard to support all aspects of the children’s lives. We want them to feel secure and happy as well as challenged in their work. We also hold various other marks.

 

More About Our School

We have many talented pupils in our school with talents in English and Maths as well as Sport, Arts and IT; we encourage all children to develop their interests as far as possible. ICT is our real strong point and we have won awards both regionally and nationally for being an exceptional school in terms of the ICT that we offer to our children.

We are extremely keen to use the latest technology to support learning. We know that children live technology and we try to utilise this in their learning with laptops and ipads.

Barton itself is a good learning resource for us. We have excellent facilities, often within walking distance. There is the ‘Ropewalk’ arts centre, ‘Waters Edge’ nature area, the museum and swimming pool, as well as the Wilderspin Victorian School. All of these facilities have been incorporated into our curriculum.

We are known to be a school who takes part in many activities, visits and residential trips, this is one of the ways that we try to open up new horizons for our children. We are strong players in the local speech and drama festival taking many of the top prizes each year. We take part in the North Lincs choral event every year. Children are offered a relevant and interesting curriculum at Castledyke.

We are very keen that all children shall excel in core areas such as reading and maths, we expect parents to support us and their children in developing these skills. We have an open house policy and regularly invite parents in to the school for assemblies, class chats and various other events.

We are a vibrant school, keen to support, not only our children, but also parents and the wider community. We are happy to welcome visitors. We have many people who come to have a look at us, they always comment on our polite confident pupils and the positive atmosphere of the school.
