Coronavirus update (Monday June 22nd)

 School is now open  four days a week for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. If you would like your child to attend and have not already given permission, please contact the school.

PLEASE NOTE: Because we can only have a limited number of children in each classroom, it may not be possible for your child to attend before September.

Children will be in one of 8 pods of no more than 8 children. Children will have different start, play, lunch and end times so that we can ensure the pods do not mix.  Children do not need to wear a school uniform and lunches will be provided as normal. Please check the timetable below for start and end times for your child.

A definition of vulnerable pupils and a full list of key worker roles can be found here.

WELCOME

"What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God"

Micah 6:8

Dear Parent,


From our nursery through to Year 6, our aim is to create a happy, vibrant, caring and safe environment where all children flourish and achieve their full potential. Your child will receive an excellent education and will have the opportunity to develop the academic, social, moral and spiritual skills they need to be able to achieve to the best of their ability. Our November 2017 OFSTED report states that we "leave no stone unturned in our quest to improve the life chances of pupils in the school".

As a Church of England School, we have daily assemblies. Additionally, families, staff and children attend church services four times a year. Our Vision, Mission and Core Values of Family, Respect, Encouragement, Excellence, Trust and Fairness are at the heart of everything that we do in school. As governors and staff, we strongly believe that every child should feel valued and respected for the contribution they make to our school family.

We have the highest academic expectations of our children in every year group. As a result of this, and high quality teaching,  children make outstanding progress from their starting points. Staff and governors are committed to ensuring that all children leave Holy Trinity with the skills, understanding and attitudes necessary to carry them through their teenage years and into adult life. We encourage them to challenge prejudice and intolerance against any group or individual and to think about and act on the issues they see in the world around them. As our last SIAMS inspection said, "Pupils are articulate in their explanation of how RE and worship help them to reflect on and develop deeper knowledge of their own and others' faith. They have developed a healthy respect for difference and demonstrate tolerance and respect with impressive maturity ".

We are an open, welcoming school that enjoys excellent relationships with both parents and the wider community.  At Holy Trinity, we believe that great education needs a strong partnership between school and home.  By joining in with school activities, taking part in parent groups and supporting your child in their home learning, we can together ensure that your child receives the best possible start in life.

With all my best wishes, 

Simon Brereton 
Headteacher
