Welcome to Caldicotes Primary Academy


Thank you for taking the time to visit the Caldicotes Primary Academy website. It reflects how we challenge our children to be the best that they can be.

Caldicotes Primary Academy, became part of the Academies Enterprise Trust on April 1st 2013.

We are proud to be an inclusive setting where children learn, are challenged and are inspired through the range of stimulating learning opportunities both indoors and outside.

We work in partnership with families to ensure all children achieve their potential and are challenged to make their best better. 

You will always receive a warm welcome at Caldicotes and are encouraged, through various events and opportunities, to participate in sharing these experiences with your children. 



Effective communication between home, academy and children is vitally important. We make use of texting, Facebook, Marvellous Me, Orbit in Early Years and our website to ensure you are well informed about activities and events.

We are at the start of a new exciting phase in our learning pathway as an Academy and we invite you to join us on our journey to make our academy the best it can be.
