Holy Trinity Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to be able to share the news that Mrs Neal is pregnant. We are thrilled for her and her husband. Mrs Neal will begin her maternity leave in May.
Last week we had a one day safeguarding audit. This is a service offered by the local authority so I thought that it would be a helpful check of our systems and procedures. The lady carrying out the audit was very thorough and I know that she spoke to some parents as part of her day. The audit was very reassuring.
With best wishes,
Mrs Cox
