Walk to School Week, 15th – 19th May

During the week 15th-19th May, we would like to ask you and your children to walk to school. This is a national initiative run by Living Streets in order to encourage fewer drivers on the road, thus improving local air quality, and giving children – and their parents – more exercise!

To support this, we would like to the children to walk to school with a difference.

Mad-cap Monday Walk to school wearing the silliest hat you can find!
Trainer Tuesday Wear your brightest trainers to walk to school … without being told off!
Wooly-Wednesday Wear your favourite jumper to keep you warm while you walk to school
Think-it Thursday On your walk to school, think about what could be improved so that more children could walk to school. Give your ideas to Ms Phillips – they’ll be a reward for the best ones.
Funky Footwear Friday Wear your snazziest and jazziest shoes to walk to school – just make sure they’re safe (no high heels or platforms, please!)

The Junior Travel Ambassadors will be out and about taking photos of hats, jumpers and fabulous footwear! Winners of Think-it Thursday will be announced in Celebration Assembly on Friday.

Easter

Here are some activities for the Easter weekend:

We had a lovely service in church on Monday morning, thank you to those of you who joined us. It was a good way to start the week. On behalf of all the staff I would like to wish you all a peaceful Eastertide and share with you a prayer for Easter.

God of wonder, God of new life,

On Good Friday we remember how the friends of Jesus cried tears at the foot of the cross.

They were sad and quiet as he was laid in the tomb.

On Easter day we will remember how their sadness turned to joy when Jesus rose from the dead and returned.

He brought the promise of new life and forgiveness for us all.

Help us to remember every day

The gift of your son Jesus to the world, and always be thankful.

Amen

Our School

Ethos and Aims of Holy Trinity CE School.

 At Holy Trinity School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun.

Our motto is:

Alta Pete – Aim High

The primary aim of the school is to help each pupil reach his or her full potential so that they may develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to take full advantage of the opportunities available in their future lives.

 We achieve this by:

  • fostering the values, attributes and lifestyles that a Christian faith demands in the family, among friends, in the school and in the wider community.
  • creating an environment for staff and pupils that is happy stimulating and supportive in which core values and beliefs of high expectations can flourish
  • providing an appropriate balanced education designed to help each pupil reach their potential.
  • ensuring that all staff have access to development opportunities in keeping with the needs of the school and individuals’ expertise to enhance the educational opportunities for our children.
  • providing effective management and organisation within the school to give clear guidance for its direction
  • nurture the partnership role between School, Governors, Parents,ChristChurchand the wider community for the benefit of the children we are jointly responsible for.

These are underpinned by the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
