School Ethos, Vision & Values

Our Ethos

‘Thinking for ourselves, caring for others, loving God’

At Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School we seek to be a community where all are welcome and encouraged to take their place, regardless of our differences. We encourage hard work and perseverance and we expect everyone to strive to do their very best for themselves and for each other. Our entire community is made strong through collaboration: learning from one another, supporting one another and challenging one another.

We want our lives to be crafted by the teachings of Jesus and the way we work together to mirror His love: patient, kind and never-failing. (1 Corinthians 13)

Vision

A place of excellence which maximises an individual’s potential through faith in God and strong partnership between children, parents, staff. governors and the wider community.

We are a creative, forward thinking Church of England Primary School that provides an all-round education of the highest quality for each and every child. In partnership with families, we nurture self-belief, encouraging all to become successful, able and responsible members of the global community.

We want everyone to be involved in learning, aim for achievement at their highest possible level and experience and celebrate success.

Values

Our underlying Christian values are explored through exciting, interactive and relevant Collective Worship sessions each week. We focus on one of our Christian values each half-term, exploring a different thread each week. These ideas are then followed up in class based around a thought-provoking key question. Teaching these values so explicitly allows us to mould a shared understanding of how we live well together. Please explore the links to the left to see what we have been discussing recently.

Please feel free to explore, download and use our 2017/18 Collective Worships.

Ethos and Welfare Committee and the Hub Council

Within the Redstart Learning Partnership, each of our schools is accountable to the Board of Directors. A Hub Council of representatives from schools in each hub (Taunton or South Somerset) meets termly to review progress, discuss issues and celebrate achievements. At Holy Trinity, we have an Ethos and Welfare Committee, which meets regularly to discuss community issues and to ensure that the school is continually moving forwards to becoming an excellent Church of England primary school. If you would like to get involved in our Ethos and Welfare Committee or the Hub Council, please use the contact us form on this website.
