Values and vision
Caludon Castle School’s motto is "Respect for all, from all". Students are encouraged to value their learning and strive to achieve to the best of their ability. The secondary school offers a wide range of support for children and their families, including trained councillors, youth workers and career advisers.
As part of the Castle Phoenix Teaching School Alliance, Caludon Castle School works hard to deliver well-qualified staff who meet pupils’ individual needs and offer opportunities for all.
“Teaching is good across the academy overall and in English, drama, music; history and science inspectors saw evidence of outstanding teaching over time. Teachers are using the academy’s new assessment system effectively to plan lessons that meet the needs of pupils well. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength in the academy. Pupils in the main school and learners in the sixth form have an excellent understanding of the wider world, their responsibilities as future citizens and the importance of respect and tolerance. Behaviour is good in lessons and around the academy because the expectations of leaders and teachers are high. Pupils arrive at lessons keen to learn.”
