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.

Being a Church School

Holy Trinity is a church school committed to the enjoyment and journey of learning and to the spiritual, moral, educational and social development of our children. This is done within our church school ethos of Christian belief and our values of Respect, Belief and Courage.

Our status is "voluntary controlled" which means that we are "controlled" by the Local Authority (Shropshire) but that we have strong links with the parish, which is part of Lichfield Diocese. In addition it means that every three years or so, normally in the same term as our OFSTED, we are inspected under the SIAMS (Statutory inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) legislation.

We have strong links with our parish church of Holy Trinity. 

Reverend Paul Darlington and members of the church team lead weekly acts of worship in school. Children also attend Connect Club run by the church team and contribute to assemblies and worship.

 ​As a school we attend services at the church to celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter as well as a special leaver's service for our Year Six pupils where they are presented with Bibles as a leaving gift .As part of our RE lessons we also visit the church to learn about the building and Christian worship.

We have areas in each classroom and around school which reflect our Christian Values. The children are encouraged to explore Christianity in many ways, for example Year 6 children write prayers for our weekly Celebration Assembly which are translated into other languages of children in school and read out by the pupils. We also respect and learn about the other faiths in our school and ensure that everyone is included.
