This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. John Ch15 v12
At Trinity St Stephen we aim to ensure that everybody Thrives, Achieves and flourishes within our Caring Christian Community.
We use our Christian Values and our Bible verse to guide our interactions with others. We believe that keeping this commandment at the heart of everything we do helps us to continually aim to do the best for everyone within our school community.
We believe that every member of the school community (including pupils, parents, staff, governors and friends) has infinite value and unique God given talents and abilities which they can learn to use for the benefit of all.
We aim to lead the growth of our children academically, physically, emotionally, spiritually, culturally and socially.
The Christian values which underpin our vision are:
Compassion: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Trust: ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.’ John 14:1
Friendship: ‘A friend loves at all times.’ Proverbs 17:17
Wisdom: ‘Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength. ‘ 1 Corinthians 1:24-25
Peace: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.’ Matthew 5:19
Fellowship: ‘But God has combined the members of the body… so that there should be no division in the body, but that parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.’ 1 Corinthians 12:24-26
