Children in Need
We have raised a magnificent £665.42 for Children in Need this year. Thank you everyone who supported this worthwhile charity. For more information please see the charity events page.
Parent View Website
We would like to encourage all parents/carers to spend a few minutes of their time completing an on-line survey about Caedmon School. Ofsted have set up a website that offers parents the opportunity to express their views about their child's school on 12 different aspects, from the quality of teaching to standards of behaviour. You can find the survey at parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. We appreciate you taking the time to do this.
When you try to log in to Parent ePortal you will be told that there is a problem with this website's security certificate. There is, in fact, no problem - just click on the 'continue to this website not recommended' button.
