Castleford Park Junior Academy
We know that starting at a new school can feel nerve-wracking for parents and pupils, as well as exciting! To help with a confident start in September, we will continue to upload new information to this page of our website so that you can begin to build an understanding of our school’s systems and procedures. Firstly, you will see a copy of the presentation that we share with parents at our Open Evening. You can also view our prospectus here – which explains key details about us.
This initial letter has also now been sent out to Year 2 parents electronically through your Infant School:
Below, Mr Booth, our Assistant Headteacher has kindly recorded a version of the presentation we would normally give to welcome new parents into school. Unfortunately, due to the high rates of coronavirus transmission in Castleford and its surrounding areas, we have been unable to welcome you in person this year.
In September, we will also hold a welcome session where different members of staff will help with answering parent questions about our routines and procedures.
Our current children have created a virtual tour for your children to see. Please take a look here to help you familiarise yourself with our site
Please find here some answers to questions that new parents want to know here
Please also remember that you can contact our school if you have any specific queries:
Telephone: 01977 518959
Our staff are really looking forward to meeting you and your children soon. Soon, you will be able to have a look which adults work in Year 3 and read their welcome…
