PARENT partnership

We believe that working together with parents and carers is an essential part of the learning journey for all children here at Holy Trinity. You know your children best, and we can learn from you and your experiences with your children.

There are many different opportunities for us to work together and we do hope that you will make the most of these.

Homework is an important part of this Partnership, and valuing learning together supports the children both in school and in the context of the society in general. Homework routines are shared at the Curriculum Meetings in September. Please do contact the school if you are unclear about any aspect of homework.

Parent Information Meetings are held at least once each term.  Further details of these can be found on the Parent Information Meeting Page.

Curriculum Meetings: We share the learning for the year ahead, and talk about key areas for development across the whole school. Parents of children in Years 5 and 6 will also receive information about the forthcoming Residential Visits.

End of Year Reports: Each child takes home a full end of year written report.  This contains a report on Learning, Attendance, National Testing/Screening outcomes, and information about the class arrangements for the following year.

Individual Classes also hold 'parent meetings' throughout the term including Phonic sessions, Grammar and Spelling workshops, Mathematic workshops, Literacy Presentations and more!

Parents are also invited to attend Class Worships, Worship in Church on a Friday or at key Christian Festivals.

All children take part in drama and singing productions at different points across the school year.
