School Ethos, Vision & Values

Our Ethos

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

At Holy Trinity C of E VA 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

We adopt the following Christian Values as guiding principles:

Respect, Responsibility, Tolerance, Perserverance, Courage and Integrity.

Holy Trinity Primary School pupils will be enthusiastic learners who think for themselves, have a thirst for knowledge and a desire to challenge themselves. They will be able to persevere and co-operate to achieve their goals in a safe and caring school. They are polite, confident and considerate of both their peers and adults.

1. Our aim is to create a positive, encouraging and caring atmosphere within the school to promote a sense of community, geared towards ensuring that all pupils and staff feel valued and respected.

2. To promote the school as a welcoming environment for all who work within its walls and all who visit it.

3. To encourage a sense of caring for the building and its resources. A tidy well cared for school encourages pupils to produce careful work which is well presented, and of which they can be justifiably proud.

4. We regard the parents and school as a partnership whose aim is to promote good standards of behaviour at all time.
