place first ladder diagonally across the ouside corner of the moat so that the end only just bears on the outer edges of the moat on either side of the castle.
at the midspan of the ladder you will be above the moat, 4.75m from the outer corner and 9.39m form the inner corner. just close enough to span across with the second 9.5m ladder by supporting it on the first ladder at midspan.

- If the moat was around the island, wouldn't they be able to go right up to the island itself?

This should work. The diagonal solution should work too with 9.5 m planks.
While the diagnol solution seems to be the best, it seems it would also be possible only using one foot bridge. By using a large stone or other heavy enough object, you could place the bridge on the shore and hold it in place with the stone. This would cover about 9 meters of the moat, leaving about 1/2 meter to secure the bridge to the ground with the stone. Then people could walk across and jump the last meter over the moat.

I would make a diving board and then let them jump across..
