At Trinity St Stephen we aim to ensure that everybody Thrives, Achieves and flourishes within our Caring Christian 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 everybody to discover their unique potential and begin to grow into the best person they can be academically, physically, emotionally, spiritually, culturally and socially.
We will work together as a team of governors, staff, parents, pupils and other partners to give every member of our community a positive attitude to learning so that they enjoy achieving their best.
We seek to teach everybody values and morals that will encourage mutual respect and help us to shape our lives and engage confidently with those with different experiences of life.
We believe that learning should be closely matched to each child’s needs and experience, helping to prepare them to live in and make sense of the world.
We want everybody to begin to make an active contribution to making our world a better place.
At Trinity St Stephen CE First School we have asked the community to contribute to the choice of our Christian Values. We are proud that our values 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
