Welcome Message from the Head Teacher
On behalf of all the staff, the children, parents and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Caedmon Community Primary School.
Welcome to the website of our very successful primary school. If you are accessing this page, you will already have an association with our school or you are a prospective parent doing some research into selecting the right primary school for your child to attend. We realise that this decision is one of the most important you will make. I hope this website gives you a good understanding about Caedmon Primary. However, you cannot match seeing the school for yourself, so I am inviting you to contact the school office and take part in a personal tour of the school with the Head Teacher. During the tour you will experience a school with an ethos entrenched in putting children first within a warm, nurturing, safe and happy environment. We are committed to ensuring all children achieve their potential both academically and also ensuring all children develop into well rounded, thoughtful young people.
We are proud of the schools many achievements, which have been a result of hard work by a very professional team of staff, and an equally determined and enthusiastic group of children.
Successful education is centred around positive working relationships. We have outstanding relationships with parents at our school and our ethos is built around trust. We welcome parent and community involvement in every aspect of what we do. There is always a welcome at school for every parent to share in all aspects of your child's development. If this is difficult due to your working commitments the aim of the website is to keep you informed and give you a rich flavour of what goes on in our school.
Our very successful 2012 Ofsted Inspection and positive ethos has ensured that the school has grown over recent years. We have wonderful new facilities including play equipment and outdoor classrooms, along with welcoming classrooms and outstanding resources in the form of a high staff to pupil ratio, equipment so staff can deliver outstanding teaching and a heavy commitment to Caedmon Primary having the latest technology in place to drive children's learning. The school facilities, community support and positive parents make Caedmon Primary a happy place for our children. However, most important of all are the children themselves who are enthusiastic and keen to learn making me very proud to be Head Teacher of Caedmon Community Primary School.
I hope that you find the website interactive and a regular place to visit to engage fully in your child's education and time at Caedmon. We have included a Google search engine on the front page. This is in the hope that as many children and parents make the Caedmon website their homepage on their computers at home.

Welcome from the Children
Our school is very welcoming to every child. There is an iPad in every class and if you are on the school council, you get to go to London. The staff at Caedmon are very kind to every child in the school. All of the lessons are fun and interesting. The school council decide almost everything around school. If you do well in your lesson you sometimes get to pick a prize out of Mr Wisby's treasure box. There are lots of different teams to be part of, like football, netball and basketball . We play in competitions across Gateshead.
