Trinity's Vision and Values
Our school, as part of the Christian community, will value and nurture each individual.
We aim to ensure children reach their full potential - building resilience and gaining the knowledge and experience to become compassionate and respectful global citizens. Children will be encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle, become confident in their abilities and talents and be given opportunities to be inquisitive through an ambitious curriculum.
Our children will be:
7. Global Citizens
Our Key Drivers:
As part of this, we have identified four ‘key drivers’ that will run throughout our curriculum to ensure high quality teaching and learning at our school and ensure our values are explicitly taught.
Creativity (Links to values: Inquisitive, Resilient & Ambitious)
We would like our children to engage and use their knowledge and skills in a variety of creative ways.
We will give the children opportunities to be imaginative, to use experiences and observations to make connections in their learning and appreciate that learning can be accomplished in different forms.
Koinonia (Links to values: Respectful, Compassionate & Global Citizens)
Koinonia is a biblical reference and the Greek word for ‘fellowship’. Our school is proud to be part of the Christian community and we aim to explore Christian beliefs and practices, develop a sense of community spirit, celebrate diversity and help pupils understand their place in the world.
Healthy Lifestyle (Links to values: Healthy & Resilient)
It is important to us that all members of our school community are healthy both physically and mentally. Throughout our curriculum we will seek opportunities to encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle and to help pupils develop the physical and mental strength to be successful and happy.
Natural World (Links to values: Inquisitive, Respect & Global Citizens)
We will aim to develop the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world, providing opportunities for learning within and beyond the classroom.
We will foster an attitude of care and respect where children understand how actions and decisions impact upon the world, both within the local and global environment.
British Values and the Prevent Strategy
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. At Trinity, the school staff and governors undertake an annual audit of British values to reinforce the Prevent strategy, to celebrate our achievements and plan for the future as part of the School Development Plan. The most recent audit can be downloaded below.
