At Sedgehill Academy, we believe that students in our school can be as successful as students in any other school, and it is our role and responsibility to make this happen. Our aim is to bring out the best in every student, balancing expectations of high academic achievement with a rich and varied curriculum designed to promote strong development of character. Music and creative arts form an integral part of this with every student having the opportunity to learn a musical instrument free of charge from years 7 to 9. We also believe that the most successful students are those who not only achieve their academic potential, but those who are also happy and fulfilled.
Sedgehill Academy has an obligation under section 78 of the Education Act (2002) which requires all schools, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of students at the school. This includes actively promoting the British values of
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
As a school we aim to develop and nurture these by:
- Embedding our own values of hard work, kindness, integrity and excellence in all that we do
- Delivering a vibrant and engaging assembly programme with British values and ethical beliefs at its heart.
- Delivering a well-structured Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship education programme which addresses all of the requirements of the programmes of study.
We aim to ensure that our students become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background, and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
