Welcome

Welcome to Castle Batch Primary School Academy.

We aim for all our children to be happy and confident in school and we believe, with the right opportunities, a dedicated staff, an exciting curriculum, a caring environment and with great home school partnership, all children can achieve their very best during their primary years.

We are a caring, inclusive academy. We value the contributions and achievements of all members of our academy community. We have the highest expectations of our learners, both academically and in their conduct. Tolerance, understanding and respect for others are fostered throughout the academy, and this is reflected in the excellent behaviour of our children. Through careful planning and appropriate strategies we endeavour to meet the individual needs of every learner in our school. 

We are a Learning without Limits School, and we believe in the extraordinary learning capacity of every one of our young learners. We put no ceiling on their learning through assumptions about their ability, and we use every opportunity to let them show us what they can do. 

We are very fortunate to have lovely grounds, with a spacious school field attached to the academy and various outside areas which are used by all children to enhance their curriculum learning. We take pride in our site and, this year, we have been working hard on the learning environment in all areas of our school. 

We consider ourselves to be a true community academy, serving the children and families of Worle. Children and staff are very proud of our academy, and we would be very pleased to show you around.

Our Vision

Happy, confident children, learning to learn. 

Our Aims and Values

We aim for all Castle Batch children to be able to say:

  • I am literate, numerate, technologically able, and can be creative in different ways; 
  • I am aspirational and I aim high;
  • I am empowered to choose and I can share my ideas;
  • I am good at speaking to a range of people and making my feelings known;
  • I am confident to take risks and resilient when I make a mistake;
  • I am independent – I can think for myself and make positive choices;
  • I can play and learn as part of a team and be respectful of others;
  • I know how to keep myself safe and be physically and mentally healthy;
  • I know the difference between right and wrong and understand the consequences of my actions;
  • I am curious about the world and the people in it.

In order for this to happen:

  • Our Headteacher will be inspirational and aspirational, be a good communicator who listens to all, lead by example, will value others and work as part of the team.
  • Our senior leaders will lead with clear vision and direction, lead with drive and determination, be supportive and value all members of the school community, understand and acknowledge the strengths of the school as well as working to improve things.

  • Our subject leaders will show good knowledge of the curriculum, be supportive, have positive attitudes, show a clear vision for their subject and resource the curriculum well.

They will have current, high quality training and will always be willing to learn and improve further. They will always respond to the needs of the children, both academically and pastorally.
  • Our support staff will be flexible – they will adapt and improvise. They will be supportive of children’s learning, professional, organised and a crucial part of our team.
  • Our lunchtime supervisors will always put the children first, they will be good listeners who are firm but fair. They will always follow school procedures, but balance that with using good common sense.
  • Our curriculum will be child centred, creative and fun. It will be based on developing knowledge and skills, will be relevant and practical. We will use our whole academy environment, as well as the wider environment through trips and visits, to enrich and enhance our curriculum.

The Priory Learning Trust

The Priory Learning Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust of primary and secondary schools – and in time (we hope) special schools. This will add real inclusivity to our Trust.

The PLT grew from a passion to bring the power of partnership and sharing to bear and provide a first-class education to a wide range of children, of all abilities and social class groupings, in WSM and especially in North Worle.

We believe that this approach will create happy, confident, and high-achieving students. This truly collaborative approach will also develop great staff relationships and improve staff wellbeing. It will healthy challenge and healthy competition.

The Priory Learning Trust will:

  • Support the aspirations of young people and their ambitions for their future success.
  • Contribute to producing aspirational, well-rounded, confident and active citizens.
  • Offer a broad range of qualifications.
  • Be inspirational learning centres offering exceptional education.
  • Combine, share and utilise the highest academic standards and levels of expertise across our academies and partners to design and develop an innovative and inspiring curriculum – learning is at the centre of what we do
  • Provide a strong duty of care to nurture and support students' wellbeing and self-esteem.
  • Maintain the unique nature of all of the schools within the Trust.
  • Give Academy Councils the freedoms to focus on the challenge and support for the improvements in teaching, learning and the curriculum.
