At Cedar Road, we believe that it is important that the academy works in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the best for all our pupils.
Parents are invited to contact the Class Teacher whenever they wish to discuss anything concerning their child and meetings can be arranged over the telephone or by letter at mutually convenient times.
If you need to speak to the Class Teacher urgently, then you will usually be able to catch them on the playground after school finishes. Parents should bear in mind, however, that teachers may have prior arrangements or other commitments.
As well as informal visits, parents will have the opportunity to attend the school on two formal evenings to discuss their child’s progress and to view their work. The first consultation is usually held in October. This occasion gives parents and teachers the opportunity to discuss the new year group and the period of ‘settling in’. A second parents’ evening is held in the Spring Term, usually in March. In July the annual written report is sent home and parents are invited into school to look at their child’s work as part of an informal open evening.
Cedar Road Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. Providing a safe environment for all our students, staff and visitors is at the upmost importance to us.

An important aspect of our ethos is ensuring that our students feel safe and secure at school at all times. We hope that this information will provide you with useful advice when visiting us.
What are my responsibilities as a visitor?
All of those who come into contact with students through their paid or voluntary work are responsible for their own actions and behaviour. We all have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of the students. Visitors should act promptly if they witness any incident which could give rise to concern. All incidents must be reported to a member of the Safeguarding Team named below.
Signing in and out
All visitors to Cedar Road Primary School must sign in at reception. Visitors will be issued with a visitor’s pass which must be worn at all times. When leaving, all visitors must sign out and return their visitor pass. You may be asked to provide ID and a copy of your DBS certificate.
Fire & Evacuation
• There will be a continuous bell
• You must leave the building by the nearest exit and move onto the school field reporting to the office staff

What should I do if I am worried about a student?
If whilst working with a student you become concerned about:
• Comments made by the student
• Marks or bruising on the student
• Changes in the student’s behaviour or demeanour
Please report these concerns to a member of the Safeguarding Team named below
What should I do if a child makes a disclosure to me?
If a child says something to you which you think involves a concern about their safety or protection, please take the following four steps:
2. Do not promise confidentiality
3. Report immediately
4. Record the details of what they said
How do I assure my behaviour is always appropriate?
Appropriate relationships with children should be based on mutual trust and respect. Do not photograph children without permission, exchange emails or text messages, contact students on social media or give out your own personal details.
