An enhancement might be considered for the right candidate, if necessary.
The Cedars Primary School is a special school for primary aged pupils with social, emotional or mental health difficulties (SEMH) situated in green belt land in Cranford, to the west of Hounslow, bordered by the M4 and close to Heathrow Airport.
The school received its 4th consecutive Outstanding grade from Ofsted in June 2017. The inspectors stated that:
“The school is a welcoming and inspiring community, underpinned by the passion to secure the very best outcomes for pupils. Leaders and staff are equally committed to providing pupils with the highest standard of education. Together, staff work as a cohesive team to achieve this goal. Governors contribute well to the efforts to drive further improvements through a careful balance of support and challenge.”
