Welcome to the Cedars Academy! We are part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, a Leicestershire-based Multi Academies Trust steeped in traditions of academic excellence and holistic development. We are extremely proud of the high standards and aspirations of our young people which, coupled with inspirational teaching, means pupils show a positive attitude to their learning. Through working hard and aspiring to excellence, we achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils. It is these high standards that have placed the Cedars Academy in the top third of schools in Leicestershire for Progress 8.
We want every pupil to aspire to excellence. We recognise that our aspirational learners need opportunities to progress. Whether this be through inspirational teaching of the GCSE and A-level curriculum, or through working closely with our STEM partners on programmes which place a strong emphasis on exploring STEM career routes. We also work with the Brilliant Club, offering our most able pupils the opportunity to study with a University to complete a thesis, designed to inspire and prepare pupils to apply for prestigious universities. It is these high standards which lead to attainment in all areas.
At the Cedars Academy, we seek to remove any barriers to attainment. Inspirational teaching allows students to make progress in their learning, whilst our high standards ensure pupils achieve the best possible outcomes and success. We are ambitious and aspirational for our staff and pupils; we believe that by working hard and aspiring to excellence in all that we do, each and every pupil will succeed
We are committed to exacting high standards, raising attainment and demanding creative excellence from our staff and pupils. At the Cedars Academy we are driven to ensure pupil success is at the core of all our work. We provide a vibrant and engaging curriculum which promotes the love of learning, and prepares young people for the next steps in their lives. We are a driven institution where pupils’ success lies at the core of all planning. We are aspirational, bold and ambitious for pupils’ futures.
At the Cedars Academy, our mission is for pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, to make outstanding progress. We are committed to exacting high standards, raising attainment and demanding creative excellence. Moreover, inspirational teaching, coupled with vibrant and exciting extra-curricular opportunities, ensures our pupils aspire to excellence in all that they do. These key values put pupil success at the core of our work.
At the Cedars Academy we understand the value of an equal partnership between teachers and parents/carers and are committed to engaging with parents/carers to enhance our pupil experience and improve educational outcomes for all. We want our parents/carers to have a voice on the issues that matter.
'Good communication between school and home is essential, and children achieve more when schools and parents work together'.
There are several formal Parent Forums run by the school throughout the year which cover specific topics/year groups ie E-safety, Year 9/10 Options evenings etc. If you have any suggestions of topics you think would be beneficial to parents, then please do get in touch and let us know.
Each half term we run an informal Parents Coffee Morning/Evening to discuss both successes and areas for improvement at the academy. This is a great opportunity to get together with other parents and carers to share thoughts and ideas on what works, gain a better understanding of why particular things are managed the way they are and give suggestions on changes that can help the school improve and benefit all pupils. Members of the Senior Leadership (SLT) are present at part of these meetings so all information is discussed directly with them.
Some of the feedback can be dealt with quite quickly whereas more complicated and strategic items, that need further input from the school, will take longer to implement. The feedback from these meetings will be shared with parents/carers on this page going forward so that you can see the difference you make by attending these meetings and know that the leadership of the school do listen and value the input from parents.
Please note that these meetings are not for any child specific feedback which should be raised by contacting the school/tutor/head of year directly.
Refreshments are provided and we hope to see you there!
