2nd March – Book Theme Day

The children (and staff) can come to school dressed as animals  to raise money for the school.

Theatre Visit: 

The children will be watching Jungle Bungle by The West End in Schools Theatre Group. The show promotes a ‘love of books’ and will feature the following books:

How to Heal a Broken Wing by Bob Graham

Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

The Huge Bag of Worries by Virginia Ironside. Illustrations by Frank Rogers.

If children are familiar with these books they will recognise them in the show. Also, the children can learn the songs prior to the performance so that they can join in on the day. The lyrics can be found at:

Cultural diversity

We are working to put together a collection of stories and poems from our children’s heritage. Building on from our Humanae Project we are looking at our school community and celebrating the diversity we have. If you have a story or a poem from your child’s and your own cultural background please share it with us. You can send them in via email to the or in writing and we will be putting together a collection to share.

Hot Chocolate Friday!

We have started a new incentive for our children this week called Hot Chocolate Friday! Children are chosen by their teachers to have hot chocolate with me at break-time. The children are chosen because of their consistently fantastic behaviour and attitude to learning. It is very important that we celebrate the behaviour of all of those children who always work hard and behave well. I am really proud of our children.

The first group are:

Annabelle and Sienna (Rec), Lucia (Y1), Ellie (Y2, Zara and Mrs Stickler (Y3), Rosie (Y4), Ruby and Bradley (Y5), and Gabriella (Y6).

It was great fun!


Prayer Day – Humanae Project

During the last week children took part in Prayer Day activities to paint their self-portraits and look at the similarities and differences in ourselves as a school. The activity promoted the idea that we are all people of God regardless of eye, hair or skin colour. The children mixed paints to match their skin colour which links into the Humanae Project which was developed by artist Angelica Dass. Her work is available to look at using the following link:

Reminder: the vehicle gates are not pedestrian exit. Please do not use these gates. The gates were installed to make the site safe for children and people using the site. Following a recent H&S check, they are potentially a crush zone for pedestrians due to the way in which the gates work. The reason we use the pedestrian gate is to try to help make Longlands Close a safe zone for our children and families. We are teaching the children to be safe and we expect our parents/carers to uphold our school rules when using the site.

Reminder: we no longer allow anyone without a permit to park on the premises. For breakfast and after school clubs you will need to park and use the pedestrian gates.


Please remember to check your child’s uniform. We have a number of children who need indoor shoes and have yet to bring PE kits. Please ensure they have the correct uniform by Monday at the latest.

Should you have any queries regarding this please ask at the office or the class staff.


We are graded as a good school with outstanding features. We are pleased that the hard work of the school has been externally recognised.

Overall effectiveness Good
Effectiveness of leadership and management Good
Quality of teaching, learning and assessment Good
Personal development, behaviour and welfare Outstanding
Outcomes for pupils Good

HT OFSTED Report June 9th and 10th 2016


RE Quality Mark.

We are proud and pleased to have gained a silver award for the quality of our RE. We are now working towards Gold in the next year to 18 months. Well done to all the children and staff.

Holy Trinity CE Primary School REQM Letter



Our SIAMS inspection report has now been officially published. We are delighted with the outcome and the feedback about our school and community. The report has been sent out to parents and carers today.


Class assemblies and events.

Parents/carers and family are invited to attend class assemblies and other events in the school calendar. This is an opportunity for you to share the work children have been doing.

Please ensure you arrive and are seated ready for any performance to start at the designated time. For most assemblies this is at 9.05AM ready for the class to start at 9.10AM. The assemblies normally finish by 9.25AM.

You will not be allowed in unless you are on time as this disrupts the children’s performances and the parents/carers and families’ enjoyment.

Please note: these are only for the parents/carers and families of children within the specific class. Mobile phones need to be on silent, video is not permitted. Further dates for next half-term are on the dates.

SchoolComms – online payments to school via credit or debit card

We  have introduced a new service ‘School Gateway’. This means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time.
