New on the site

Welcome back!

It is lovely to see everyone at the start of term. I hope you’ve had a good summer.

Welcome to our new children and their families. We hope to have really positive relationships with you as your children grow and learn as they make their way through the school. We have made a really positive start to the term!

 

DATES: Diary Dates Autumn 2017 parents

New vicar.

We will be welcoming Rev Teresa Wynne, our new vicar, officially to the parish on Monday 6th November. We are looking forward to working with her and developing further links with the church.

Gates

We have got our new gates installed but are still having a few minor issues with getting people through outside of the school pick up times. Mr Latham is making sure he’s around as much as possible to help make sure everyone can get in. The new fencing is also installed so that makes the school even more secure and we can also use the wildlife area at the back of the field again.

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.

UNIFORM

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.

SIAMS INSPECTION

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.

HT SIAMS REPORT 31.3.16

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 2.45PM ready for the class to start at 2.50pm. The assemblies normally finish by 3.10pm.

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.

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.
