Caldecott is an attractive community primary school for children aged 2-11 located in South Abingdon.
The whole school has been modernised to a very high standard. Accommodation for the youngest children is very attractively laid out with light, spacious areas between classrooms. The building for the older children has been refurbished to provide a dedicated music room, a beautiful library and access to computer technology in all rooms. All classrooms for children aged 2-11 have large interactive touch screens, enabling teachers to use the very latest technology to enhance learning.
The main grounds include play areas, an adventure trail, an environmental area including a pond, quiet areas, areas for playing with construction toys and sand, netball, football and rounders pitches and athletics track. There is a meadow which includes an orchard and Forest School area-this was developed with the support of the Abingdon Carbon Cutters and the Friends of Caldecott. The youngest children in the Foundation Stage (age 3-5) have access to a large specially designed garden with covered areas and safety surfaces which includes a large sand pit, a shaded garden, a quiet area and climbing areas. Our very youngest children (2-3) enjoy bespoke accommodation in Caldecott Cygnets which is situated in the Children's Centre building.
There are three areas within the school:
Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) is for children aged 2-5 years old
Key Stage One (Year 1 and Year 2) is for children aged 5 to 7
Key Stage Two (Year 3 to Year 6) is for children aged 7 to 11
Our classes are called by birds' names. They are: Cygnets, Swans, Robins, Hens, Larks, Swallows, Wrens, Swifts, Falcons, Owls, Kestrel, Red Kites, Terns, Pelicans, Puffins and Penguins.
There are 2 classes for each year group. Teaching may be either whole class or group work within the class depending on the demands of the subject. The aim of all our teaching is to develop the full potential of our children.
Our school motto is 'Happy Learners, Aiming High' and this sums up our aim to ensure that every single child fulfils their potential and builds confidence to achieve their dreams.
