If you and your child are new to our school we would like to welcome you.
This website is intended to provide you with information about the school, its aims and values, curriculum and activities.
We hope you will find the information useful, both as an introduction to Holy Trinity School, and also as a reference for the future.
Holy Trinity is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School.
This means that it was founded by the Church of England back in 1843 but is now 'controlled' by Sandwell Education Authority who provide the money to run the school. However, members of the church still help to govern the school and are responsible for overseeing the Collective Worship in the School. At present, the vicar of Holy Trinity Church serves on the Governing Body along with assistant pastor.
Staff and Governors at Holy Trinity are committed to providing an environment where all children feel secure and valued and have the opportunity to achieve their best, irrespective of gender, background, ethnicity, or special needs and this is reflected in our Mission Statement and Aims. In addition to developing children’s communication, literacy, mathematical and I.C.T. skills, we seek to help them develop their self esteem, to learn to work cooperatively with others and to prepare them for the choices and challenges of adult life in a diverse society.
Some children can experience a degree of difficulty at some point during their schooling, and we seek to provide strong pastoral support and to liaise with parents regularly about their children’s welfare as well as their academic progress. This is particularly important when children approach the end of their primary years and face the pressures of both national tests and of transfer to high school. We ensure that Year 6 is a “transition” year for our pupils, aimed at helping them develop an increasingly independent approach to learning.
I hope that your child(ren) will be happy and successful at Holy Trinity and that you will work with us to support them.
