Holy Trinity Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for another excellent year for Holy Trinity. We are finishing the year with an even higher standard of teaching and learning throughout the school, enhanced sport and playground equipment, more music on offer, the highest number of pupils that we have ever had, amazing fund raising from the PTA, a superbly enhanced junior library, the highest number of applications for reception places, excellent results and a strong strategic vision from the governors. Please do visit the school’s website to read the Governors’ Annual Report which beautifully captures what has been achieved this year. If you look under the “Performance Data” section of the website you will also see a report on Holy Trinity from our School Improvement Partner (essentially, an inspector from the local authority).


I would like to thank all the members of the staff team for their continued devotion to our children. Our staff and governors are extremely talented; we are very blessed to have them. We are so grateful for the fabulous contribution that our parent body had made to all these achievements.


This morning we had an assembly and picnic to celebrate the retirement of Mrs Skivington and Mrs Wadlow and also to congratulate Mr Picken, Mrs Rickman and Mrs Jones who are all moving on to new teaching jobs. It was a special occasion to celebrate these very special people and their impact on the school.


Tomorrow we will be saying goodbye to our wonderful Jade and Emerald classes as they begin their exciting new phase at secondary school. They are a gifted group who will be greatly missed. We hope that you have a lovely summer and we look forward to seeing you all on the 7th September.

Best wishes, Penny Cox
