On Wednesday we welcomed Baroness Diana Barran to Cedar Mount. She is one of the new ministerial team appointed to the Department for Education following the recent reshuffle. It was great that she was able to join us to meet students and staff and to hear about some of the great work going on across the trust. The Minister had only been in post 8 days when she visited us so it’s good to know that people in government are making an effort to get out into schools across the country. Before coming to us she had visited Stoke-on-Trent and also called in to Connell College. The Baroness was greeted by Cedar Mount’s student leaders, Tiffany and Ahmed who led her on a tour of the school. She was joined by the Regional Schools Commissioner, Vicky Beer, who hadn’t seen Cedar Mount for a number of years. It was so impressive to see first-hand the incredibly positive impact of the whole school focus on curriculum and pedagogy, behaviour and attitudes. We were so proud to be able to share the fantastic work of students and staff.
