Information for current Year 6 students

It is always a pleasure to welcome new students to our school each September. The first step along that journey involves finding out about us and what we have to offer your child.

In the current climate we unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to host a much smaller pre-bookable event whilst still offering parents the opportunity to view our facilities. Therefore, we are now offering a booking facility with a maximum number of families booked on each slot.

Please call us on (01228) 710044 to book your place.

In the mean time we hope you find the information below useful.

Special Educational Needs - An Inclusive Approach

At Caldew, we believe firmly that to be truly inclusive, all SEND students should fully integrated into school life and fully involved in mainstream lessons, activities, social times and extra-curricular activities.
