Cedar Receive Esteemed “Thinking School” Awards

 Cedar Children’s Academy is thrilled to have been accredited as “Thinking Schools” by the University of Exeter.

Exeter University’s Cognitive Education Development Unit has highlighted the shared philosophy championed by the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT), which sponsors both schools. Central to this philosophy is transforming life chances by actively shaping the minds and habits of young people using cognitive education.Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded.

Research has repeatedly demonstrated that when children understand how their brains work, they achieve better academic and personal outcomes. Cedar joined the Thinking Schools Academy Trust in June 2016 and have embraced the Trust’s innovative cognitive approach.

The reports highlight a wide range of strengths at both schools, including:

  • Parents seeing great improvements in their children’s confidence and competence.
  • Reading, writing and maths improving consistently.
  • An ethos of excellence and instilling a passion of love for learning.
  • Pupils are provided with an education giving them the life chances they deserve.
  • Staff, governing bodies, and the Trust play a pivotal role in pupil development.

 

The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is a family of 14 schools in the South East providing a high-quality education to all pupils.

 

Kirstie Jones, Headteacher at Cedar Children’s Academy, said:

 

“The ‘Thinking School’ accreditation is a wonderful achievement by all involved at Cedar Children’s Academy.

 

“Our pupils are considerate, enthusiastic, determined, assured and resilient thinkers and learners that have benefitted greatly by using ‘Thinking’ tools in their day to day learning.”

 

Stuart Gardner, Chief Executive of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, said:

 

“This is a brilliant milestone for Cedar Children’s Academy and The Gordon Children’s Academy – staff and pupils at both schools should be very proud that their hard work has been recognised.

 

“We pride ourselves on using a cognitive approach to education to offer our students the very best opportunities, and this accreditation is testament to that.”
