At Trinity, we believe in creating a pupil leadership culture where children take on key leadership roles and their voices are heard. We want our children to be actively involved in school improvement and represent pupil voice in our school.
There are four houses at Trinity Primary School, they are based on four local castles; Ludlow, Raglan, Chepstow and Goodrich. Each week, House points are collected in and tallied up, and the winning House is revealed by our House Captains in our weekly Praise Assembly. The winning House has a treat the following week. This encourages each house to work as part of a team. At the end of the year, the house with the most points wins the cup and also has an ‘end of year’ special prize, where they are celebrated.
Peer Mediation is a confidential process for resolving conflicts. If a pupil has a dispute with another pupil, our trained student mediators help to the disputants to resolve the issue. They listen to all participants, and help the participants to develop their own solution to the conflict.
We have a dedicated team who work together to implement projects to ensure we, as a school, are committed to creating a more sustainable future for our students and community. Our Eco club meet frequently to discuss ways in which we can have a positive impact on our local environment. Throughout the year, the children set school targets and encourage year groups to participate to reach our yearly goal. From effective recycling to planting trees, we aim to become a carbon neutral school by 2030.
The Play Leaders' role is to encourage the whole school community to engage in more physical activity during break times and lunch times, whilst improving the experience of break and lunch times for children. Our Play Leaders will support the supervisors by organising games and activities for the children to take part in and support children taking part in lunch time games. They will also support by offering out equipment for children to play with, and help to tidy away and organise the playground after break and lunch times. This is a role that will expand as the year goes on and the children will receive training to help support them even further.
Reception Buddies: All Receptions pupils are paired with a year 6 pupil. They meet with them weekly to share stories. This encourages the year 6 children to be good role models, and it also fosters responsibility.
