School Description

The Cedar School is a smaller than average-sized special school for pupils with physical and health difficulties with associated moderate or severe learning difficulties. Many have difficulties with communication or mobility. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Almost half of all pupils are entitled to receive the pupil premium (additional funding made available by the government for children who are looked after and those known to be eligible to receive free school meals). This is much higher than the national average. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. Approximately twenty percent of pupils come from homes where English in not the first language. Pupils come to school from the city of Southampton. A few travel in from neighbouring towns in Hampshire or even further afield. Since the previous inspection, there has been a change in leadership on the governing body and a number of new governors have been recruited. There have been changes to the school leadership team with the creation of additional posts of responsibility. The school will move to a new building later this year.
