 Holy Trinity Newsletter 

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you had a lovely break with your children. I’m sure that you enjoyed reading your copy of the Kingfisher Frenzy. I am thrilled with the quality of the children’s writing and the initiative they showed when organising themselves to produce the articles. I thought that the “Big Debate” articles were really helpful and thought provoking.

Over the holiday the school has had new Interactive Smartboards fitted in all the classrooms (with the exception of nursery). These boards are all back lit so they don’t use projectors; this means that the definition is much clearer. The boards have gone down extremely well with the children and will certainly support their learning. We have also had new PC’s fitted into all the classrooms for the teachers as the laptops they were using were beginning to reach the end of their lives.

We had a productive day on Monday updating our Safeguarding Training and familiarising ourselves with our new technology. Please note that we have a new area of our website that is devoted to safeguarding.I also wanted to share with you the success of a significant number of children in this year’s primary maths challenge (a total of 68000 children took part nationally). We are delighted that four children from Holy Trinity got through to the final, three of whom reached the bonus round. A very good number of children came very close to getting through including children in year 5. Well done one and all and special congratulations to Thomas, Frankie, Noah and Max. For further information please visit www.primarymathschallenge.org.uk/

Best wishes, Penny Cox

Important Information

Attendance. The local authority are keeping a close focus on attendance. As well being aware of general low attendance (90% and below), they are drawing particular attention to absences around holiday times. They have recommended that we write to all parents of children who had additional unauthorised holiday. These letters will be going out over the next few days. Please do not book holidays outside of the school holidays, do bear this in mind with the end of term and beginning of the next school year. We finish on Friday 20th July and return on Wednesday 5th September. All the term dates are on the website. 

Sun hats and sunscreen. Please ensure that your child has a sun hat and water bottle in school. Please also apply sunscreen before they come to school. Thank you.
