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.
Parents and Carers of The Cedars Academy students are being asked to complete an online survey by 30th January 2022 as part of an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.
January 14, 2022
As part of The Cedars Academy and the Lionheart Educational Trust’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, the Trust are seeking each parent/carer’s opinions and views on a range of issues relating to our school.
Associate Principal, James Rolfe, said, “Feedback from stakeholders is important to us as we are always keen to hear how we can further develop and improve.”
Parent surveys were launched by the Trust in 2019 and past responses have offered some really useful insights that have allowed The Cedars Academy, alongside the Trust, to reflect carefully and plan for future change.
The Cedars Academy and the Lionheart Educational Trust are asking all parents/carers once again to share their views this year through an online survey which will be emailed directly by Jisc Online Surveys on Monday 17th January 2022.
The survey, which takes around 10-15 minutes, is a great opportunity for parents to share their views honestly, with confidentiality guaranteed.
In due course, survey outcomes and actions as a result will be shared with parents/carers and other school stakeholders.
