New Reception Year pupil intake for September 2018

Congratulations to all those allocated a September 2018 Reception Year place at Ark Castledown.  Please remember to return paper copies of  your completed admission forms to our school office as soon as possible to confirm your acceptance. If you have been offered but do not wish to take up your place, please do let the school office know as soon as possible so that the place can be allocated to another pupil. Paper copies of the admission forms are available from the school office. 

Academy Uniform

At Ark Castledown Primary Academy, we have a uniform policy, which reinforces our culture of high expectations and academic achievement. We encourage age-appropriate dress and we make sure pupils understand that there is suitable attire for different settings: school; places of worship; work; holidays and weekends. The uniform policy is effective throughout the school year.

  • All pupils must dress according to the Uniform Policy. This is a very important part of our ethos and culture.
  • Uniform unites us as a community. We learn, practise, play and succeed together. All pupils make a commitment when they put on their Ark Castledown uniform that they will abide by the rules of the academy community.
  • Uniform reduces distractions. We are focused on our learning, the basics being reading, writing, mathematics and citizenship.
  • Uniform makes us all equal. The children come to school looking the same way. No one has to feel awkward about the clothes they have or don’t have.
  • Uniform gives us all an identity to be part and proud of.
  • Uniforms are professional. Pupils look smart, neat and ready to learn.
