Holy Trinity Rosehill Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary School was opened on 1 April 2006 following the amalgamation of the former Holy Trinity (V.A.) C.E. Junior School and Rosehill Infant School. The original Holy Trinity School was sited next to the old Holy Trinity Church in the centre of Stockton, and throughout the history of the school, its fundamental purpose has been to provide a high standard of education in a Christian context. Rosehill Infant School was built to provide children with a good foundation in education before they transferred to Holy Trinity. The school continues to operate on two sites but staff and children meet on a regular basis promoting one school, one vision and one mission.
The school aims to:
- Give high priority to the spiritual development of pupils, enabling them to develop attitudes of mutual respect and responsibility and to realise their full potential.
- Foster a sympathetic understanding of the Christian faith whilst exerting no pressure to believe.
- Encourage strong links between school, home and church and prepare pupils for life in the wider community.
- Encourage respect for other people’s property, the school and the local surroundings.
- Provide an intellectually stimulating environment where children will develop a positive attitude to learning.
- Make learning fun.
- Create a strong ethos where children can achieve their potential.
- develop pupil’s self-confidence and raise their self-esteem so they will learn to work with independence and self-discipline.
- Provide a warm friendly atmosphere where children gain respect and tolerance of, and show a caring attitude for others.
- Show a caring attitude towards all children and adults concerned with the school.
School Church Ethos Statement
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian and British values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
All of our children have been involved in creating our mission statement, Love God, Love Learning, Love Each Other. Following this they were invited to design a logo to represent this value mission statement for our school. You will see from the document below, the children had a really tough challenge to choose one above the rest. Number was the favourite choice.
