Please read our wonderful SIAMS Inspection Report 2017. We were judged OUTSTANDING again! Our aim is for children to develop self-confidence, gain a balanced view of their society
and the world through a responsive curriculum and adopt Christian Values that they will
carry with them throughout life. We provide opportunities for reflection and Prayer so that
children learn and explore experiences and individuality.

Our Values education
We continue to deliver a Values Education throughout the school to encourage children to develop positive attitudes and adopt
values that they will carry with them throughout life.
Our Core Christian Values are 'Respect, Care and Courage'.
Meeting requirements for collective worship, establishing a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout
the school, and providing relevant activities within and beyond the classroom are the main ways that we ensure pupils’ social,
moral, spiritual and cultural development. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and
tolerance. PSHE programme supports this as well as teaching our children about the importance of our British Values and
keeping healthy and safe. Children are also encouraged to develop independence and responsibility and make the most of their
The DISTINCTIVENESS of Trinity School.
We allow children and staff opportunities for reflection throughout
the school environment: during assembly times, outside in our
quiet area and special places where children can be quiet and think.
We encourage Prayer in the classroom where teachers share the
importance of prayer as part of everyday Christian Life as well
as other Beliefs. In addition, circle time allows a chance for children
to respond, to show and share their feelings. It provides
opportunities for children to learn and explore experiences
Through our Values Education children are taught to be inclusive
and show respect for everyone; Our learning environment makes
reference to our Values. RE displays share children’s thoughts and
experiences. There are references to the Christian Season.
Links work both ways and our School and Trinity Church support one another whilst forging strong partnerships. Church is as familiar as school with children and parents. Singing and music is recognised as giving huge benefit to our children and more and more opportunities are being taken to share the joy and team spirit that comes with putting music at the heart of the School.
We weave into our curriculum opportunities to bring other cultures to our children; in the books that are chosen, in the music that is played, in the topics that are planned for, in the visitors that are invited and in the RE schemes that are in place. Our aim is that the children should have a balanced view of their society and their world.
Partnerships with our community are important to us. Singing,
music and dance is recognised as giving huge benefit to our
children and more and more opportunities are being taken to
share the joy and team spirit with all of our community that
comes with putting performances, music, creativity and academic
challenge at the heart of the School.
