Philosophy and Aims of Holy Trinity C of E Primary Academy and Nursery

As a church school our philosophy and ethos is based on Christian Values and the teaching of Christ. We are an inclusive school and respect the differences, backgrounds, abilities, cultures and faiths of all our children and families. We promote the British Values of Democracy, the Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs, alongside our Christian values.

We strive to make Holy Trinity an exciting and stimulating place where all children can achieve their full potential. We want our pupils to leave Holy Trinity not only literate and numerate, but able to maintain the same excitement about learning with which they start school and with the confidence and skills to find out more about their own locality and the world beyond.

Aims of the school:

At Holy Trinity we want to ensure that our school:

  • fosters Christian understanding and attitudes;
  • provides a welcoming, caring, secure, healthy and safe environment where the whole community feel respected, happy and valued;
  • provides equal opportunities for all children regardless of age, sex, ability, race or ethnic background;
  • encourages each child, through high quality teaching, to enjoy learning and see education as a life-long process to help them to achieve their full potential, in a rapidly changing world;
  • develops lively and enquiring minds and provides opportunities for children to work independently and collaboratively to foster a positive attitude to their own and others’ work;
  • helps all children to develop worthwhile personal values and attitudes and to gain a clear understanding of, and respect and tolerance for the ways of life for all people including those with Special Needs, from other cultures, races and creeds;
  • establishes an environment that will enable children to achieve the highest levels of literacy and numeracy;
  • encourages all children to become independent learners who are confident, skilful and responsible;
  • develops each child’s understanding of their self-worth and the need to take responsibility for their learning and behaviour ;
  • develops an effective partnership so that parents, carers and children feel part of the school community and their views, opinions and preferences are listened to and respected.
