New year challenges

Parent & Carer Group 

We've a Parent & Carer Group meeting next Tuesday (16th January), from 9.30-11.30am. This is an opportunity to meet other parents and carers, ask questions and share your views. A Children with Disabilities social worker will also be talking about Short Breaks and activities pupils can access outside of school and our Careers & Lifelong Learning Lead, Miss Wheeler, will share information about our careers curriculum. All parents and carers are welcome and refreshments will be provided.

Wellbeing strategy 

Over the past couple of years, we've done a great deal of work in developing our support for the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils, parents, carers and staff. Click on this link to view our strategy and vision for wellbeing at Castle Hill. 

Vision & Strategy

Courses for Parents & Carers
Stockport MBC is offering all parents and carers access to a number of online courses, including ‘Understanding Your Child’ and ‘Understanding Your Teenager’s Brain’. The courses normally cost £39, but are free for a limited period. You can find further details here:


Car parking 

The reduction in parking spaces on the school site, which we mentioned a few weeks ago, has now come into effect. We really do appreciate parents and carers who are choosing to park off site or are limiting their time in school to just quickly dropping off and picking up.

Reward choices

Our reward choices for this half-term are:

  • Baking
  • Football
  • Chill-out room
  • Film & pizza in school
  • Go home early
  • Paint a pot
  • X-Box bus
  • Gaming room
  • Build a bear

Pupils are asked to choose two of these and are guaranteed to get one of their choices.

All that pupils need to do to get on rewards is to have at least 90% attendance and punctuality and have no serious behaviour incidents this half-term. 

Upcoming events

There's a lot going on in school and it's easy to lose track of events. So, in a bid to make things easier, we've decided to include a list of upcoming events in each week's blog.
