Guide each of us to be a light to the world (inspired by Matthew 5:14)

At Dedham Church of England Primary School, we equally value personal, emotional and spiritual development alongside academic progress.  We value the individual whilst recognising the importance of contributing as local and global citizens in the world.  We work closely with families and the community to equip children with the values and knowledge needed for the next steps in their lives.
