Aims and Values
Everything we do at Trinity is underpinned by our aims and values. We believe that children who attend Trinity First School will have the opportunity to grow as individuals in a happy and secure environment.
Our Mission Statement is...
‘Growing together, learning together, praising together’
Our School Aims
We aim to create and enrich a positive learning environment for everyone, within school and within the wider community, where:-
At Trinity our values are linked to five objects.
The Rock - The bible tells us that Jesus is the rock and that we should build on a solid foundation. This represents our Christian foundation as a school.
The Glitter ball - This represents reflection. Firstly, we should be mirroring the example that Jesus set for us in the way that we live and treat others. Secondly, as learners we are constantly reflecting on what we have done well and how we can improve our learning.
The Lighthouse - 'I am the light of the world'. John 8:12. Not only does the lighthouse represent Jesus shining His light into the world, but also our school shining our light into the community. Our children have so many special qualities and we want them to shine!
The Slinky - At Trinity we are a team. Everyone, no matter what their title, is important and has a vital role to play. We need to ensure that we are playing our part to the best of our ability.
The Song - The words to this song encourage the children to take every opportunity that is placed in front of them as this will help them to grow as an individual and also to discover new talents.
