Trinity Chapeltown – Family Dining

Family Dining is a very important part of our day.  At Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, we will come together as a community to eat freshly cooked, healthy meals in a family setting.  Children will sit around a dining table with an adult, they will set the table and serve each other their food.  They will eat from the best plates and dishes and drink from real glasses.  Conversation and manners will be modelled by the adult; this is a time of day when our children can learn so much!  We will talk about our values, what we have learned during the day, and this is a time when we can cement our relationships.

Trinity Chapeltown – Keep Things Simple

At Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, we like to keep things simple. The way we do things in school will not be particularly revolutionary, but we will make sure that we do the simple things really well. Children thrive when they feel safe and children feel safe when they know what to expect. By keeping expectations clear and simple, we ensure that children know what the boundaries are and know what they are supposed to be doing and when.

Keeping expectations simple does not stop them being high. The best schools have the highest expectations of their students. Through hard work and perseverance, every child can achieve.   Our core values of hard work, trust and fairness are communicated through everything that we do in school.  Even the youngest children have a deep understanding that they can rely on their teachers to support them in all their hard work.
