Growing together in love and learning’

At the Husthwaite and Sessay CE Primary Federation our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognise and achieve their full potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society.


The Federation is a family where:

·         everybody is welcomed and you are not alone

·         we pray together

·         we are honest, open and respect and care for everyone and everything in our unique and rural community.


As a Federation we encourage a growth mindset, set high standards of learning and celebrate the achievements of every child within our exciting, broad and balanced curriculum. Our curriculum is based upon our Christian values. It is inclusive and through inquisitive and creative minds our children develop their self-confidence as learners and are encouraged to progress socially, emotionally and spiritually.


The Federation is a place where everyone is different and everyone is important.


“Teach a child to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

British Values at Sessay CE Primary School


At Sessay CE Primary School we uphold and teach pupils about the British Values as directed under Ofsted guidance, September 2014:


'ensure that they and the school promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and support and help, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain’


British Values are defined as

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

We aim to actively promote British Values through our daily assemblies and whole school systems and structures, such as electing and running a School Council. We also promote the British values through ensuring that our curriculum planning and delivery includes opportunities for exploring these values.


Children, parents and staff have many opportunities for their voices to be heard at our school. Democracy is central to how we operate.

Rule of law

The importance of laws and rules, whether they are those govern the class, the school or the country are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days.

Individual Liberty

Pupils are actively encouraged to make choices at our school, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we provide opportunities for our children to make choices safely, through the provision of a safe and planned curriculum.

Mutual Respect

At Sessay we show respect to each other regardless of any differences. Different cultural events take place throughout the school year encouraging children to learn about and show respect for different cultures.

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

At Sessay we aim to enhance pupils’ understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society through a range of experiences.
