About Us

“Broadening Horizons, Growing Together.”

At Cedar Road we are committed to being an inclusive school, providing the best possible standard of education for every child. With us learning and teaching is challenging, exciting and creative within a safe, secure, nurturing environment.


Cedar Road Primary School is part of the David Ross Education Trust. We have over 400 pupils aged 4-11.

The school was judged by Ofsted in November 2017 to be good in all areas.

We hope that our website shows you what makes our primary academy unique, but would encourage anyone who has an interest in the school to give us a call and come and see Cedar Road for yourself.

We also have a mission statement that is at the heart of everything that we do.

Cedar Road Primary School mission statement:

Our school family follows 4 Core Values.

These are:

  • Aspiration
  • Ambition
  • Courage
  • Respect

These Core Values are taught through all aspects of school life.

School motto

Our learning environment reflects each and every aspect of this motto.

“Broadening Horizons"

Everyone has played a part in this vision. Even our logo has been designed by one of our pupils.
