On Sunday 1st December 2013 Holy Trinity CE Primary School officially became
Holy Trinity C.E. Primary Academy
We are officially a "non-sponsored convertor" academy.
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS
All Governors are very pleased indeed at the conversion to Academy status. This represents a really exciting time in the history of our school and all of us look forward to the future benefits this conversion will bring.
The conversion to Academy has come about as a result of well-informed discussion involving the Governing Body in consultation with children, staff, parents and the local community over a period of almost two years. The Governing Body is looking forward to developing the Academy to provide an outstanding education for all children who attend whilst continuing to keep them at the very centre of all that we do.
MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
I am very pleased that we have now reached the day when we can say that we have become an Academy. This has been a deliberate choice on the part of the teachers, children, parents and governors who were all involved in the discussions about this change. It has taken slightly longer than we thought but all the staff are very pleased that we can now begin to move forward under the banner of being an Academy. We will keep everyone updated about any small changes that will affect parents and children but we hope that the transition will be very smooth and that you will all see that we will maintain the high standards that you expect for your children.
We believe that all people are made in God's image which is most fully shown in Jesus Christ. We wish to nurture that image in our children and thus to develop their human potential to its fullness. Accordingly we celebrate the meeting of different cultures in our community and in the school.
We consider each of the 5 strands within the "Every Child Matters" agenda to be of significant importance. They are:
- Being healthy
- Stay safe
- Enjoy &. achieve
- Positive community contribution
- Economic well being
With this in mind, Staff and Governors work together with parents and children to create a happy and secure family environment. Our purpose is to educate our children academically, spiritually, socially, physically and culturally. We aim to develop their values, attitudes and skills so as to fit them to be responsible, generous, caring and co-operating citizens in school and in the community.
We aim to give children a vision and positive purpose in living, based on faith, hope and love so that they are able to withstand the negative influences in life.
We regard faith as an integral part of life: the Christian ethos of the school respects the great faiths and cultures of the world and seeks to inform the children about them, so as to enrich their own. We encourage an enquiring spirit.
