School Description

Pupils who attend this school do not always know how long they will be here. Regardless of this, they are welcomed into a nurturing and supportive environment as soon as they arrive. This helps them to feel safe and happy. From the time that they join Cedar Lodge, pupils rarely miss a day of school. Pupils recognise that their time at this school helps them to catch up quickly with the education that they may have missed in the past. They know that staff have the highest expectations of them, regardless of their previous experiences. Pupils grow in confidence and quickly develop exceptionally positive attitudes towards their learning. This allows them to achieve very well. Pupils successfully overcome many social and emotional difficulties that they had before they joined this school. They behave impeccably and build trusting and respectful relationships. They are proud of what they have already achieved and highly motivated to take their next steps. By the time they leave, they are more than ready for their transition back to mainstream education. The school helps pupils to feel part of a community. Pupils value opportunities to participate in local events, for example meeting civic leaders and elected officials, and baking cakes for elderly residents in the locality.
