Welcome to St Cedd’s Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary School. We would like to provide an introduction to the opportunities available to the children who join our school, and to the values and beliefs within which the school operates.
We encourage you to visit the school on the induction sessions in the summer term before your child joins the Reception class, or by appointment for parents/carers of older children
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
The aims of St. Cedd’s C of E School are founded on the recognition that the family and the school are working together for the development of our children. It is in this context that we aim to create an environment underpinned by Christian values in which each of our pupils can grow, developing a love of learning and the abilities which will enable them to become confident young people who can make a positive contribution to society.
To develop and support the individual needs and talents of all members of our school community and to enable them to learn and live through faith and education we aim to:
Provide a caring Christian community in which all are valued for the unique contribution they can make to the school and the wider world.
Provide a stable and stimulating environment conducive to study and learning, integrating every aspect of the child’s development, where individual talents are fostered and encouraged and which allows each person to reach their full potential.
Through the development of spirituality and community life and worship we aim to enable the children to appreciate and respect themselves, their world and the feelings, beliefs and cultures of those around them.
Provide a wide curriculum that develops the unique potential of each person and educates the whole child in an environment which encourages growth in self confidence and the acquisition of skills, attitudes and values.
Recognise that the child is living now and not just for the future, and that they should be happy, purposeful and able to contribute to the society around them.
