Cedarbank School is a small secondary school dedicated to supporting pupils with additional support needs. The school is situated in the Ladywell district of Livingston and makes provision for pupils from young people from West Lothian who have additional support needs.
The school provides for 110 secondary age pupils who have Additional Learning and Social and Communication Needs. The school provides opportunities for everyone to achieve in a safe and nurturing environment.
Cedarbank provides a broad education for young people from first year through to sixth year. The school offers a full curriculum across three sites. S1 -3 pupils attend the Cedarbank main building, S4/5 attend the Annexe at Deans community High School and S6 attend the Annexe at Armadale Academy.
Effective learning and teaching is the core business of all staff. It is, therefore, essential that all staff set high expectations to encourage young people to be all they can be in order that they achieve their full potential. This will allow them to leave school as effective contributors, successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens.
Pupil learning is core and we encourage all to work effectively with partners and the community to ensure that that every pupil develops the skills they require for life, learning and work.
The school has its own well-equipped gym hall, Craft, Design & Technology, Music, Science and Home Economics rooms. All the classrooms are on the ground level and are accessible by wheelchair.
