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.
