Cecil Road Primary & Nursery


Cecil Road School values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils.  We endeavour to provide the best learning conditions for each pupil, promoting development in understanding and social maturity alongside their peers wherever possible.  Special Education Needs are identified early and the school works closely to plan a curriculum to meet the children’s needs.

A team of highly qualified teaching assistants provide extra support in school. The children have planned interventions delivered in small groups or individually. If necessary, we involve outside agencies or seek further specialist advice and support.

We work in partnership with our children, parents, carers, specialists and governors. The school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils and celebrates small steps progress.
