"The Cedar School is a maintained special school in Nursling, Southampton for children with complex physical, health and learning difficulties.      

All children have a range of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and as such have a joint health, care and education plan or an educational statement or are moving through this statutory process.

We have children with a combination of SEN which could range from Physical Difficulties (PD),  Hearing Impairment (HI), Visual Impairment (VI), Autism (ASD), Moderate learning Difficulties (MLD), Profound and Multiple learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe learning difficulties (SLD) and associated behavioural difficulties and complex health needs,  

The Cedar School believes that we all learn from each other (‘Partners in learning’), old and young, and every member of the school is accepted for who they are, and what they can do, and not from what other people think they should be. The school currently has 70 places.

The school offers a specialised learning environment with a range of extension rooms and areas to further support the SEN requirements of our young people. The school has a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, soft play room, adapted Independence kitchen, outside learning classroom and sensory garden, as well as adapted play equipment and a range of outside learning spaces to enrich our curriculum offer. The school also has 3 minibuses to support our learning curriculum as we regularly go on visits out into the community".Download the full document here
