Caldew PTA

Caldew PTA provides funds for “extras” that enrich and have an impact on our children’s education.

Our small and friendly committee brings together parents, teachers and our local community to raise money and to support Caldew school. It provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. Our Association at Caldew School will bring closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school.


During the academic year we are looking to support the school by providing the funds so that they can carry on enriching the lives of our children. At the end of the academic year the school celebrates the achievements and efforts of the students.


We will be working towards larger long-term initiatives including purchasing a new kiln for the Art Department that can be used in the community, refurbishment of the sports changing facilities that is used by numerous community groups  and re-designing the courtyard for the students.

Volunteers Needed

We are looking for like-minded people who can commit some time during the school calendar to arrange activities and events to raise money for the school or alternatively have a hobby, skill or trade that can help support the school with its ever restricting constraints on its budget.


We all have the goal of making a difference in every small way we can and hope that you will support us in any way that you can.


If you can help in any way possible please contact Cheryl Eastburn at Caldew School.

The strengthening of care and support has had a positive impact on most pupils. It was clearly visible when inspectors met pupils during the inspection. They demonstrated confidence as learners, and typically enjoyed positive interactions with one another and adults.
