Our Christian Values
In developing our Christian Vision stakeholders considered our mission as a church school and the community we serve. Respect runs deeply throughout all our work and we recognise the importance that for everyone to flourish, everyone has a responsibility as captured in Titus 2:7. Our Christian Vision is rooted in and underpinned by the teaching of Jesus and the good news He brings.
The Federation of Holy Trinity CE Schools has a very valuable relationship with our local churches; Holy Trinity Church and Bethel Chapel. This relationship is an important part of the life of our school.
At Holy Trinity Church we come together to celebrate and worship significant events and festivals in the Christian calendar - Christmas, Easter and Harvest Festival. Members and leaders of the church deliver regular acts of Collective worship including drama performances from 'Open the Book'. Members and staff from Holy Trinity Church also serve on our board of governors.
We also share regular worship with Bethel Chapel who help us focus on The Bible, the teaching of Jesus and messages of love, hope and faith.
We are very fortunate to have Ripon Cathedral close to us and throughout the year we support events there through our contributions in song, art, drama and performance. Occasions at the cathedral are very special and provide opportunities for children to experience acts of worship which are inclusive in nature and spiritual in their essence.
Throughout the year there are lots of opportunities for our children to share in the life of the church - having breakfast at Holy Trinity, attending Junior Church at Bethel, joining in with holiday clubs, after-school events and occasional festivals.
Our school welcomes children and families from all religious backgrounds and faiths as well as those from none. Through our Christian vision, values and aims we seek to explore spirituality, Christian teaching, and mutual respect.
