Newsletter 1 - 9th September 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to a new school year.


On this momentous day, you may be feeling like us; a bit shocked and hugely saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. As a school community, we feel it is only right to honour her life of humility and absolute service. To this end, we will be opening a Book of Condolence for children, staff and parents to leave messages in should they wish.

We expect this will be available for you to sign before and after school just outside the office from Monday. 


Happy Hub

On another note, we are really pleased to open our Happy Hub as an inside space for children to access during play times should they wish. This has been well received by the children this week. We are asking for donations to enhance this space and would be very grateful if anyone could help us!


  • A large colourful rug
  • Large floor cushions
  • Bean bags
  • Colouring equipment
  • Table top games/card games
  • Dressing up costumes
  • Maybe a sofa?!


I know how generous our community is so I thank you in advance for your donations!


House Captains

I’m very pleased to announce our new Y6 House and Vice Captains this morning. Congratulations to you all!

As you will know, previously our newsletter has contained lots of photos and information from children and classes across the school. In order to encourage all parents to actually read our newsletter we are slimming it down!


So class pages on our website will have lots of photos and information about trips etc from that class should you wish to take a look!


We hope you all have a pleasant weekend as we begin to process the death of our monarch and look forward with hope.


The Church of England’s Official Prayer
Gracious God, we give thanks
for the life of your servant Queen Elizabeth,
for her faith and her dedication to duty.
Bless our nation as we mourn her death
and may her example continue to inspire us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Mrs Griffith

School Clubs

School Clubs are open for booking.  Click here to see details.  Please note that only Magpies Clubs start next week.  All other clubs will start w/c 19th September and for your diary, the last session for all clubs this term will be w/c 5th December.

School Lunch - Price Increase

Just a quick note to let you know that Wilson Jones will be increasing the price of school lunches.  This will take effect after half term and the new price will be £2.60.


We have two registrations in school each day at 8.45am and 1pm for all children. If your child needs to miss a registration for any reason (e.g. hospital appointment, piano exam) please complete the 'Request for Term Time Absence' form which can be found here on the Attendance section of our website and return to the school office.  You can also find our Attendance Policy here in the same section and would be grateful if you could make yourself familiar with this.  We hope you're as ambitious as we are about achieving attendance targets as we know that attendance and attainment are very closely correlated.  Thank you so much for your help with this.

Please do not book holidays or family days during term time.  Missing even one or two days of school can be detrimental to your child's learning as key information is missed. Friendships are also affected.  Holiday absences will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored closely each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM.  Please note that changes are afoot which may require the issuing of fixed penalty notices for holiday taken during school term time.  

School Term Dates

Please see here for term dates:

Holy Trinity CE Primary School take safeguarding very seriously. If you have a concern, please do not hesitate to report to our designated staff;

Please do not send your child to school if they're unwell or with a high temperature controlled by paracetamol or ibuprofen.  Don't forget that your child must not return to school until at least 48 hours after the last episode of any gastric upset (vomiting or diarrhoea).
