Caldecott Foundation School is a special non-maintained school catering for young people with social, emotional and behavioural problems between the ages of 8 and 18.
Every one of our students is treated as an individual and has the support of a highly qualified and experienced staff team including teachers, teaching assistants, care workers, social workers and therapists. We have also invested heavily in modern, well equipped classrooms and work areas to provide our pupils with an outstanding environment in which to grow and learn.
The school provides a diverse curriculum in a stimulating learning environment. A variety of approaches and means of making learning fun are employed by a skilled staff team who go that extra mile for the young people in their care.
The pupils are taught in classes according to their emotional needs and age and follow a highly differentiated National Curriculum. Each class contains a maximum of eight pupils, often less, with a class teacher and one or two teaching assistants.
Academic and behavioural progress is closely monitored and tracked in each lesson and feeds into a comprehensive system of assessment and review.
We are an examination centre for AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL qualifications and offer our pupils a wide range of subjects.
A full range of national curriculum subjects are studied including English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, ICT, Media Studies, Citizenship, Personal Social and Emotional Education, PE and Land Based Studies.
A variety of academic and vocational subjects are studied with the pupils taking GCSEs, entry level GCSEs, OCR national skills profile, OCR ICT and BETC examinations.
