Uniform and Equipment

Please find the link to the Caludon Castle uniform page here.

The uniform consists of a smart pair of black trousers or the approved school logo knee length black skirt, a white shirt with Caludon clip tie, and a black blazer with the Caludon badge. Shoes should be flat and all black, with no logos or decorations. Plain black trainers are allowed. Skirts must be knee length, with the Caludon logo. They should not be bandage style. Trousers must be smart and professional; leggings and jeans are not permitted.

It is important for students to be prepared for the day of learning, and that is why they should carry with them the “Cally 5”. This includes a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber and calculator. These should be in a smart and practical bag for school.

We have high expectations of our students when it comes to uniform. Any students not in correct uniform may be provided with spare uniform, or sanctioned in line with our behaviour policy. You may receive texts or emails to let you know if your child is not in the correct uniform, or does not have the correct equipment. Thank you for your support with this.


Regular attendance to school is vital to a student achieves their full potential. We expect all students to achieve at least 96% attendance. Achieving 90 per cent in an exam or test is a fantastic result but if your child is at school for only 90 per cent of the school year then they will have missed 19 days – almost four whole weeks of school. Students who miss school frequently can fall behind with their work and do less well in exams. Good attendance also shows potential employers that a young person is reliable.

The school is committed to learning outside the classroom. Therefore, a number of trips and visits are organised throughout the year to extend students’ knowledge and deepen their understanding. We may also organise reward trips, to celebrate achievement from the term or the year.

Please find the school calendar page, with details of all holidays and teacher training days, here.


We look forward to seeing our students at their Year 11 Leavers Assembly and Prom however their behaviour, attendance, punctuality and progress needs to be positive in this very important year.

Students will be able to earn success points / prom points throughout the year in order to achieve a place at the above events.


Students at Caludon follow our school motto, “Respect to all, from all”. We have high standards of behaviour and high expectations of our students, and we want all students to feel safe and happy. We recognise that children will make mistakes and we encourage students to take ownership of their behaviour in school.

Behaviour points will be issued if students are not following the expectations of the class teacher and/or members of staff on duty and around the school. These incidents are reviewed by the year teams and sanctions are issued in line with the behaviour policy. You will be informed of these sanctions via text or on the Arbor app.

If you have any questions about the behaviour of your child or would like to discuss a sanction that has been issued, please get in touch with the year team and we will direct your concern to the relevant members of staff.
