We want every child to be ‘happy, caring and successful’ encapsulates our values, aims and vision.
The school serves the area of Newport Pagnell bounded on the west by the M1 motorway; on the north by the Wolverton Road (even numbers) to a line drawn through Westbury playing field to include Park Avenue and Lakes Lane; on east by River Lovat and on south by a line drawn along Annesley Road, Broad Street and including Green Farm Road down to Marsh End Road and a line drawn across to the river, also the villages of Astwood, Hardmead, Lathbury and Chicheley.
If you have any queries as to whether or not you live in the reserved area, please do not hesitate to contact us. Parents are free to apply for their child to attend the school of their choice. All applications should be made to Milton Keynes Council, who prefer online applications where possible.
The standard admission number for entry to the school is 45. Places at Cedars are allocated according to the following criteria, in order of priority:
Children who are looked after (LAC) and all previously looked after children (PLAC) including those children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted (IAPLAC).
Children living in the area normally served by the school (as agreed with the Admissions Authority and set out above).
Younger brothers and sisters of older children who will still be in attendance at the school on the date of admission.
Children with exceptional medical or social needs, supported by written evidence, from a doctor, social worker, education welfare officer or other appropriate person.
Children with exceptional educational needs, supported by written evidence from an appropriate professional.
In the event of oversubscription, once places have been allocated under criteria 1-5 , the remaining places will be awarded according to the proximity of the child’s home to the school as measured by the nearest available route. This is from the front door of the child’s home to the school’s nearest entrance gate.
Nursery has a wider catchment area than the main school and applications for places are handled directly by the school.
The Headteacher is always delighted to arrange an appointment for interested parents to see the school at work and discuss our aims and organisation. Please contact our school office on 01908 610561.
For children joining our Reception class in September, the induction process begins the preceding Autumn with an Open Morning.
