Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December

We are inviting children to wear something Christmassy on the last day of term. This could be a Christmas jumper, t-shirt or dress​. This will not be for donations this year as a significant amount of fundraising has already taken place this term and we appreciate the commitment families have already made to this.

Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to Castleford Park Junior Academy's Website. As a whole staff team, our aim is to ensure that your children have the opportunity to experience an exciting, challenging curriculum at their fingertips. We hope to inspire life-long learning and equip them for the future - whatever aims and aspirations they have.

The children are at the centre of everything that we aim to achieve - considering their safety, happiness and learning needs. As Head, I will strive to ensure that this is possible at all times. We welcome any feedback that will help us improve further in order to meet this aim.

For further information, please read our school's Teaching and Learning Vision that we wrote together and aim to meet in every area of the curriculum.
