At Cedars Academy, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our whole school community.   


We have a supportive and caring ethos and our approach is respectful and kind, where each individual and contribution is valued. 


We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. 

We want all our children to grow in an environment that:

  • ensures they are safe;

  • promotes their physical health;

  • helps them to look after their mental health and well-being.

During the current outbreak of Covid-19, it is more important than ever to look after our families mental health and well-being. We have set up links to help and advice to support you and your family:
