Welcome to Sandal Castle VA Community Primary School
SANDAL CASTLE VA COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL
- A Church of England school serving the Community since 1686
On behalf of the children, staff, governors and myself it gives me great pleasure
to welcome you to our School.
As a Church of England school, we value the spiritual as well the educational
development of all our children, whichever faith tradition they come from.
We seek to be inclusive of everyone and to help our children to build
their lives on firm moral foundations of love and service of one another.
If your child is joining us for the first time, we look forward to establishing a happy
and successful partnership with you over the coming years.
If you already have a child here, we hope to strengthen our existing links with you to
enable us to provide the best education possible. Parents are welcomed and valued as
partners in their child’s education, as we believe that our children learn best when
staff and parents work together. Together we can ensure our school remains the
popular and very special place that it is today.
We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible
education for all of our children. Sandal Castle Primary is a school where children are
happy and feel a sense of belonging. They are supported, encouraged, nurtured and loved.
They enjoy learning in a stimulating and attractive environment in
which each child is encouraged to have fun whilst achieving their potential in the widest sense.
It is within this positive nurturing ethos that children understand the skills they need in order to learn.
We want our children to develop lively and enquiring minds, to discuss and debate, to be creative
and imaginative and to apply themselves well as they strive to reach their full potential in all aspects
of school life. Our whole school vision underpins every decision we make within the school
environment considering what is in the best interest of our children. In this way, our children
will always lie at the heart of everything we do
If you would like any more information, or to arrange a visit, please contact the school.
We look forward to meeting you.

Use of the car park at The Castle Pub
From Monday onwards there will be deliveries each morning at the Castle
Pub and staff who work at The Castle will be using the car park. During the
afternoon hours, guests will be arriving and leaving. We have always had a
very positive working relationship with the manager and staff at the Castle
and due to this have benefited from their kindness and consideration given
to parents and carers in allowing use of their car park. However, due to
complaints of parents being rude, aggressive and confrontational
regarding parking and staff even being denied access when they live on site
parents/carers will no longer have the luxury of using the car park
for parking/drop off or collection, both AM and PM due to the inappropriate
behaviours and attitudes of the minority.
Please DO NOT use the Castle Pub car park .
If you would like a paper copy of the information on our school website, please ask at the main reception and we will organise this for you.
