Parental Engagement

Our Lead Practitioner for Care & Guidance will work in partnership with families to enable us to get a holistic view of each student. From this, we are then able to provide tailored support in order to have a positive impact on every child's learning.

Open Door

Castle Rock High School has an 'open door' policy. By this we mean that all enquiries will be dealt with straight away. We want parents to contact the school with any issues or concerns, good or bad, so we can resolve any problems. Contact cards are given to every new family.

Helping families before and after school

We open from 8.15am Monday to Friday. Staff will welcome students into our dining hall where they can choose to have breakfast, or socialise with friends.

As well as a vast range of extra curricular clubs, we open our dining hall every evening until 4.30pm for students to use as a place to work, meet friends and socialise.

Learning Support

We provide many types of learning support to ensure that all students can participate in the school curriculum as fully as possible.

  • One-to-one or small group support where necessary
  • Intervention plans for issues such as anxiety management, low self-esteem, etc.
  • The Skills Academy works with students who are not quite ready for participation in a regular timetabled curriculum, preparing them for full and successful integration

Proactive Interventions

The 'Future Foxes' project led by ex-professional footballers Steve Walsh and Muzzy Isset, aims to develop confidence and determination through sport. West End actor & choreographer Nick Sutcliffe uses performance to develop literacy skills and self-esteem through drama.
