WELCOME FROM THE YEAR 8 TEAM
During this crucial year students will be guided by the Year 8 team: Mrs Devine (Year Leader), Mr Morgan ( Deputy Headteacher) and Ms McManus (Assistant Headteacher).
An excellent attendance record is important to ensure success at Caludon. We expect all students in Year 8 to achieve at least 96.5% attendance. Holidays during term time are not authorised.
All students attend school in full uniform. Students should wear a white shirt; clip on Caludon tie, black blazer (with Caludon badge), black trousers and plain black shoes or trainers. Some girls choose to wear a black skirt which must be knee length and not figure hugging.
All students at Caludon follow a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. Students have a guided choice of subjects to study in Year 8.
This school uses graduation points. Points are awarded for 100% attendance, outstanding progress, attainment, consistent positive attitude to learning, magic moments in and out of lessons, extra-curricular commitment, promoting Caludon values such as community service and student leadership. Praise postcards, rewards assemblies and awards evenings are also used to reward students for positive attitudes, achievement and attainment.
