Our Christian Foundation

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10, v.10



Trinity Anglican Methodist Primary

School was created on a Christian

foundation based on a partnership between the Anglican and Methodist Churches in Portishead and North Somerset in 2008.


In March 2016, the school joined the Bath and

Wells Multi-Academy Trust (BWMAT). This

partnership is based on shared Christian values

and high- quality support and challenge; it allows a rich collaboration with thirty other schools across two other local authorities.

Our Christian foundation is very much based on the Church of England’s Vision for education: Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good

Our Ethos Statement

Recognising its historic foundation, our school seeks to preserve and develop its Christian character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and Methodist Church in partnership with the Church at parish, circuit, diocesan, district, national and international level. As part of the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust, we seek to bring fullness of life to all pupils, whatever the beliefs of the children or their families. Our school is an inclusive and welcoming community where individuals are valued, good order is respected and relationships cherished. A sense of belonging is encouraged to improve lives and boldly expect the impossible. We aim to serve our community by working in partnership with others, to provide an education of the highest quality where excellence in its widest sense is pursued. A skilfully delivered and coherently planned broad, rich, deep and relevant creative curriculum brings mind and heart, intellect and passion together. Within the context of Christian belief and practice, we encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.


Our Aims

  • To be a strong, well informed team where everyone feels valued, supported and safe as well as reflective and motivated to keep abreast of educational and Church educational thinking - thereby eager to refine practice and plan for continual improvement.

  • Work in partnership with the wider community here and further afield to provide a rich learning culture; this includes for example, governors, parents and carers, links with external agencies, local Anglican and Methodist churches, Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust and the ZA Foundation in Africa.

  • Provide a wide range of learning experiences within an ambitious, relevant, creative and engaging curriculum and variety of extra-curricular activities. In this way, we plan to enthuse all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged, to come to school as well as meet their individual needs and initiate, challenge, deepen and consolidate learning across the curriculum and in RE, to achieve the highest possible standards and give children the cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

  • Deliver high quality teaching, coherent and well sequenced planning and accurate assessment which encourages children to take responsibility for their own learning and choices so that they develop knowledge and independence as learners with a growth mind-set and are able to answer and ask challenging questions.

  • Recognise and appreciate the individuality of every child and to value, praise and reward their efforts and courageous contributions to all aspects of school life.

  • Provide an atmosphere of trust, respect and care for all through our Christian, Trust and British values thereby promoting our distinctive Christian character and all kinds of equality and mutual understanding. There are realistic and constructive strategies to manage staff including their workload

  • Give children the opportunity to develop a sense of awe, wonder and curiosity for the world around them as well as developing an understanding and appreciation of the world, its needs, concerns and their contribution as active citizens within it. Hold daily acts of invitational, inclusive, inspiring collective worship so children can grow spiritually and appreciate the relevance of Christian teaching and faith in today’s world. 

  • Promote children’s personal, moral, spiritual, social and emotional skills within a caring and positive context with a view to giving children confidence, resilience, hope and aspiration as well as a secure foundation for their future.

  • Be responsible in providing a secure and quality environment so that children are safe, protected, happy and inspired at school as well as being confident and well equipped to face challenges. Children are treated with dignity and respect so in turn understand, respect and celebrate difference and diversity. 

  • Make effective provision for PE and sport across the school as we believe it is key to developing children’s physical and emotional health and well-being.

  • Ensure our school runs efficiently, economically and safely. It will be well ordered with good communication systems in order to provide a high- quality learning environment for children’s all -round health and achievement.

This is the Church of England's Vision for Education - an inspiring vision which we have embraced.


Together we inspire, through our Christian values, unique individuals who believe they can achieve more than they ever thought possible in mind, body and spirit. Through nurture and challenge, we provide a firm foundation to enable all to thrive, to lead and serve in their life long journey as local, national and global citizens.
