Christian Values

Our school is inclusive and serves equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith. Our school community - children, staff, governors and parents, have decided that we want our children to grow in Holy Trinity understanding the Christian values of love, respect, caring, creativity and perseverance. We are committed to ensuring all children  at Holy Trinity leave as happy, well rounded individuals, as "good people" who can make a positive contribution to society. 

What does that look like in school? Read on! 

Our core Christian value is Love. 
 The original Greek word that the New Testament uses to describe the love of God is agape (pronounced ah-gah-payh). Agape does not mean romantic love or even the love we might feel for our family or close friends. It means putting others before ourselves even when that is hard to do. 

We treat others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We accept that other people have different opinions and beliefs and that's fine. We also believe in showing respect for things, so we take care of our school building and other people's possessions. 

"To get respect you must give it"






 Caring means treating others as we would like to be treated.  That might be through a kind word, helping someone or even a smile. 

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Aesop

Each of us is creative but we all have different gifts and abilities. Some of us love to make music or to cook: some like to make models or paint. We encourage creativity in thinking as well as making because this will allow us to adapt to whatever the future may bring.  




The special gift that we have when life is difficult or painful that helps us not to give up. Endurance and perseverance are only possible where there is hope and that hope is based on the enduring nature of God’s love and faithfulness.
