Our School Vision
At Holy Trinity our vision is to be the best we can be: for God, for others and for ourselves. Through our hard work we want our children to acquire the very best in wisdom, knowledge and skills to raise their aspirations, enabling them to grow and flourish as unique and precious children of God. We want to provide a safe and welcoming space where our children learn from our Christian values, live well together and experience ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).
Our Christian vision 'To be the best we can be: for God, for others and for ourselves' lies at the heart of all we do. Our vision is underpinned by seven Christian values which are woven through our school life.
Our school values are:
We focus energies on ensuring the children and our wider community understand how these guide our everyday lives. As a result of the work we do, children here have good relationships with each other and with adults, understand the importance of spiritual and moral dimension to a fulfilled life and have a strong awareness of social responsibility.
We have received the Liverpool Diocese Church School Award 2 in recognition of the close links we have with our church. We have also recently earned the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award and are proud that our children understand and uphold the United Nations Convention of Human Rights of the Child.
We expect that children make at least good progress from their very different starting points and go on to achieve the very best outcomes in reading, writing and mathematics. We are also committed to our children flourishing in a much broader sense so they become eager and positive learners, self-disciplined, good attenders, respectful, healthy, fully aware of the dangers of the 21st century and enthusiastic participants in the wide range of extra-curricular activities that we offer through our status as a Children's University.
The Department for Education state that there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these values were reiterated by the Prime Minister in 2014.
At Holy Trinity, we understand core British Values as:
These values flow through the fabric of our school ethos. Pupils are reminded of them both explicitly (during assemblies, collective worship) and implicitly through carefully planned units of work in various subjects.
