As a Church of England School, our Christian Character is very important to us. It forms the basis of everything we do. We regularly visit our church in the village - St Mary's, and our Vicar, Reverend Mark Binney is actively involved in school life, helping us to underpin our curriculum with Christian values.
Our Christian Statement
At Sedgeberrow Church of England First School, our vision is based in the teachings of Jesus Christ and our Christian Values are at the heart of our school.
Together we share the Christian Values of Commitment, Hope and Honesty, Love, Acceptance and Forgiveness.
Those of all faiths, or none, gather together in a daily act of common worship to pray or think about our Christian Values and how they help us live fulfilling lives.
Jesus taught us to: ‘live life in all its fullness’ John 10:10
Our aim is that every child enjoys their learning, we provide a stimulating environment to encourage all children to be active and curious learners.
Jesus taught us that every person is equal: ‘for you are all one in Jesus Christ’ Galatians 3:28.
By providing a supportive environment, we help our children encounter opportunities and challenges with confidence and we ensure that all our children make positive contributions in their school life.
We are an inclusive and charitable school and we encourage kindness at all times.
We support all who are vulnerable and look after our families in times of need.
We give the children the opportunity to think beyond themselves and to consider those who need help beyond our school.
Our vision is to ensure that every child achieves happiness, emotional and physical wellbeing and the opportunities to develop an understanding of their own spirituality.
Through this vision our children flourish with kindness as individuals and achieve their best.
All children will grow a lifelong love of learning, a love for others and our world and a love for themselves.
‘Love each other as I have loved you’
John 15 :12
Prayer for Lent
your Son battled with the powers of darkness,
and grew closer to you in the desert:
help us to use these days to grow in wisdom and prayer
that we may witness to your saving love
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
