Values and Vision 

Court Fields School has been working closely with The Castle School since January 2013 and some staff have moved across to Court Fields, including leadership positions.  Court Fields is now the most improved school in Somerset.  Court Fields is well on its way to ‘good’ and, like The Castle School, the students at Court Fields are the best thing about the school.  They are motivated and keen to learn but they are proud of their school and want to see it improve.  Staff say that you never have to open a door for yourself, and there is never any litter.

The most important thing for our children is their safety.  We foster a culture of vigilance amongst staff, students and parents.  We always listen to children and take their concerns seriously.  The Castle Partnership Trust is committed to safeguarding and all staff have a duty of care towards our young people.  All complaints and concerns are fully investigated.  Please note that for posts working with children the successful candidate will be required to undergo Disclosure and Barring Service checks in line with the Local Authority and School Child Safeguarding Policy.
