Holy Trinity Church of England Schools comprise of a nursery, infant and junior school. The schools seek to provide the best possible start in life for all of their pupils. They do this alongside the wider community of parents, families, carers, local churches, public services and armed forces.
The schools share the same Christian Vision and teachings from the bible to help shape all their work and guide vision led decision-making for all:
‘Loved by God and one another, Holy Trinity is a welcoming community of faith, where we learn and flourish together. Each day opens up horizons of hope, aspiration and joy!’
Holy Trinity’s vision and its associated values are grounded in a clear theology firmly rooted in a Christian narrative. The vision was created from the theological roots taken from 1 John 4:11-12 alongside their deeply rooted belief that we are ‘Loved by God and one another.’ These biblical roots are woven throughout the collective worship provision and curriculum. As an old man, John shares his wisdom in telling us how we are to live as Christians. We do not need to physically see God; He is already in us. God’s love is made perfect or complete in us. In loving God and one another, we find the foundation of Christian life.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No-one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:11-12.
The Holy Trinity vision draws inspiration from the Bible narrative, ‘The Good Samaritan’ which is found in the gospel of Luke 10:25-37 in the New Testament. Jesus told the Parable of the Good Samaritan in response to being asked ‘who is my neighbour?’ After, stating that the greatest commandment is ’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. Luke 10:27
