We are a caring two-form entry Infant School. By having our own pre-school it has enabled us at Cedars to provide a full all-round nurturing, stimulating and educational environment for children from the age of 2yrs all the way through to the end of Y2.

We have an inclusive, nurturing ethos, within calm, attachment aware and trauma informed settings. All adults in our school treat each other and children with respect and kindness. We are committed to the emotional, as well as the academic, development of all our children, with SEMH being a high priority across the school, running through the very veins of our settings. The mental health and well-being of both children, staff and parents is a constant driving force at Cedars.

We are an OPAL school as we believe that every child has the right to access high-quality play experiences every single day!

We pride ourselves on the high quality, individualised CPD that we offer our staff across the school and preschool, with many internal promotions. (Including two of our TAs becoming teachers at our school)
Questionnaires demonstrate that our community and other external professionals speak highly of the school and the staff and we benefit from a committed, supportive Governing Board. Many parents state that in order to improve Cedars we would also have a KS2 provision!

Our successful applicant will also teach and support children's development and learning from an Attachment and Trauma Informed basis.
