Christian Values and Vision

Learning together with God’s love



1 John 4: 16: 'God is love and those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them'.

We aspire to be a happy, confident and caring community where children are motivated to flourish and achieve their full potential in a supportive learning environment, underpinned by a strong Christian ethos.

Our Christian Vision into Practice


At Holy Trinity CE (A) Primary School, our Christian Ethos underpins all aspects of our school life and community. It is our starting point for educating and nurturing the whole child, giving opportunities for spiritual development. We also strive to encourage children’s moral, social and cultural understanding and enable them to fulfil their academic potential.

Our Collective Worship reflects our Christian Values (rotated half-termly), which are rooted in scripture, linked to real-life, positive role models who encapsulate our values, and celebrate individual and collective achievements. This enables the children to reflect on how the Christian Values are relevant to their lives and how they impact on their personal growth and their relationships with others. This will provide a firm, spiritual foundation to enable them to take their place in a modern, multi-cultural society.

Father Michael, the vicar of Cuckfield’s Holy Trinity Church, is an integral part of our school community, leading Worship in school and in church, as well as guiding our spiritual journey. We are also pleased to welcome regular involvement from the Cuckfield Baptist Church.

Love, care and compassion are embedded in everyday school life and support the positive relationships within our school family. We aim to inspire a sense of awe and wonder in the children, inspired by our wonderful, natural environment and dedicated reflection areas. We are developing opportunities for children to reflect on the beauty of God’s creation, as well as their responsibility for the care for the world.
