The Staff and Governors of Caldew School are committed to working in partnership with the families of our students. Working together we can see them achieve the highest levels of attainment while growing into the independent individuals we all want them to be. Each and every student is an individual who is a valued member of our community and everything we do as a school is aimed at ensuring their success.
On entry to the school, students will join a form group, there are eight form groups in each year. The Form Tutor of each student stays the same throughout their time at the school, whenever possible, as a result we get to know everyone as individuals. The Form Tutor meets their students each day and acts as an academic mentor throughout their school career.
Students will also belong to one of five pastoral Houses. The Houses are named after five of the Lakeland valleys giving each student a sense of belonging to a small community within the school. Whether a student joins Borrowdale, Eskdale, Langdale, Mosedale or Patterdale they will find themselves a valued member of their Houses, year group and the school as a whole.
There is a genuine commitment that students come to value their successes and take pride in their achievements. At Caldew School every child really does matter.
