Friends Of Castle Park
Friends of Castle Park
All parents are automatically members of our active parent association, the Friends of Castle Park (FCP). The FCP organises many social events throughout the year, including Halloween, Christmas & Summer fairs, quiz nights, coffee mornings, fun days, evenings out for Mums and Dads, and family walks in the local area. Committee members are elected at the Annual General Meeting in the Autumn Term and then meet formally once a term to organise the events. The FCP also provides a popular second-hand uniform service.
The Friends of Castle Park incorporates a well-organised group of Class Mentors who act as a Communication and Welcoming Committee – this is particularly helpful for new families to the School. The FCP publishes a comprehensive Welcome Booklet with information on a range of services and facilities in the local area, including secondary schools, shopping, medical services and restaurants. Upon arrival at Castle Park, the Class Mentor will contact new families, giving details of events and how to contact them.
