Trinity Chapeltown – Many Minds, One Mission

At Trinity, we have many minds but one mission: to get students to and through university so that they thrive in a top job and have a great life.

We clearly communicate our mission, values and drivers throughout every day so that the whole school community know the purpose of everything that we do. We know why we move around school in the way that we do, we know why we wear our uniform in the way that we do and we know why we look at the speaker in all of our lessons.

Our core values of hard work, trust and fairness permeate all that we do. From the moment a student arrives at Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, we ask them to live these values.

In primary school, we talk about our values from day one. For example, when children are playing in Reception Class, we talk about fairness and how this affects our play; about why we need to be fair and how this helps us to enjoy our games. During Family Dining, we talk about our values and relate these to what we’ve done in class that day. A Celebration assembly at the end of the week cements the learning about the value of the week and children are publicly recognised for demonstrating this value.

By talking about our values in different ways, and ensuring that all members of the school community (children, staff and families) live our values, children will strive to live up to our highest expectations.
