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 important because of our own Christian ethos, and it provides our children and their families with a vital connection to the wider Church.
Together, the schools, church and chapel share all of the Federation's yearly milestones such as our summer service and the annual service of remembrance. We celebrate and come together in worship at important events in the Christian calendar - Christmas, Easter and Harvest Festival. We also join together in a special Ascension Service with Ripon Cathedral Primary school.
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.
Many of our staff have personal connections with the church, and staff from Holy Trinity Church serve on our board of governors. We are delighted to welcome representatives from the church to lead Collective Worship and entertain the children whilst giving them opportunities to reflect on important issues at levels which they can understand.
We share regular worship with Bethel Chapel who help us focus on the bible, the teaching of Jesus and messages of love, hope and faith.
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.
While our school welcomes children from all religious traditions, as well of those with no religion, we feel that it is important for them all to develop an understanding of the Christian faith and the role it plays in modern society.

Our Christian values are an important part of the life of our school.
Each half term we explore a different one of our Christian values in collective worship and through the day to day relationships and working of our school.
To see how you can get involved at home please follow the links on the images below for some lovely ideas. Please remember that we have excellent links with our local churches and they would also be more than happy to explore the Christian values with children and families.
