Child Protection and Safeguarding
The Governors and Staff of Holy Trinity CE School have made safeguarding an essential priority and are committed to make sure that the safeguarding of their children remains central to their work. For this reason, the principles of excellent safeguarding practice are interwoven within the Christian culture of Holy Trinity and every aspect of the school’s work. This policy supports this commitment to safeguarding and should be read in conjunction with all school policies as appropriate.

Childcare Provision at Holy Trinity
At Holy Trinity, we take our learning very seriously. Our curriculum has been developed in line with The National Curriculum, Hertfordshire LEA and our stakeholders. We have taken into account the diversity and needs of our pupils; the well-being of all our children and staff and the rigorous demands of our parents and Governors.
Our core subjects of English and Mathematics are taught according the Herts for Learning and ESSENTIAL Maths planning which both guarantee full coverage of the National Curriculum. Computing and Science also follow the county-wide planning.
As a Church school, we follow a very prescriptive programme of study ensuring that our children understand and appreciate other faiths as well as Christianity. Our emphasis on the well-being of our pupils cannot be understated and, as a result, PSHE is taught as a discrete subject through the Jigsaw Scheme of Work and all our children enjoy at least two hours of teacher taught sport and PE each week.
Foundation and Arts subjects are taught through a topic based approach. Curriculum maps are established across the school to ensure complete coverage in line with the National Curriculum. All curriculum maps are developed to meet the end of phase requirement as dictated by the Department for Education.
We try to provide our pupils with a wide range of opportunities throughout the time they are at our school. We review our curriculum annually, looking at the needs of our pupils and the community. We review the different opportunities for learning across the school, and ensure we include activities which enhance the learning and development of pupils holistically. Examples of this include our opera project for children in Year 5, camping on the school field, the development of Forest Schools and providing swimming for Year 3 pupils onwards.

Promoting British Values in our School
Promoting British Values
The DfE have reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister this year. These are:
The Rule of Law
Tolerance of those of Different Faith and Beliefs
