What is Flexi-schooling?


We have now been offering flexi-schooling for five years, so are very established with the way we organise this provision. We are affiliated with Hollinsclough School in Stafford, the official home of flexi-schooling. We benefit from their advice, guidance and support based on their long standing experience and expertise with a flexi school offer.

Here at Castleton, our offer is based on a three day week, these days are set; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but we do have children who attend four days each week, and there is an option to attend additional days at request for short periods. For the 'home school' days we record this absence on the register as a code C which is the recommended code that Ofsted like to see being used. 


The school sits in the heart of the Peak District, where we make the most of our beautiful surroundings through use of 'the big outdoors' whenever possible. We provide a huge range of curriculum breadth: forest school, reading adventure days, visitors to school, external provider led activities to name but a few. Our preference for curriculum provision is to focus on a creative approach to learning whilst maintaining  essential daily learning in maths and english. We have an exceptional adult pupil ratio with only 22 pupils on roll and one pupil in our nursery class. This enables us to focus very much on the individuals and ensure that we can offer a bespoke approach to our pupils varying needs.

If you are within travelling distance of our very special little school and would be interested in further discussion regarding our flexi offer, please do get in touch.
