We hope that our website shows you what makes our primary academy unique, but would encourage anyone who has an interest in the school to give us a call and come and see Cedar Road for yourself.

We also have a mission statement that is at the heart of everything that we do.

Cedar Road Primary School mission statement:

Our school family follows 4 Core Values.

These are:

  • Aspiration
  • Ambition
  • Courage
  • Respect

These Core Values are taught through all aspects of school life.

School motto

“Broadening Horizons"

Everyone has played a part in this vision. Even our logo has been designed by one of our pupils.
