Newsletter 13 - 3rd December 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you!

Many thanks for your support with donations for the wonderful Hampers, raffle tickets, Christmas Wreaths and mufti day today. It’s a very busy time of year and we appreciate all your contributions amidst all the other jobs on your lists!


We’re looking forward to Film Night on Tuesday.  Pick up is 4.15pm from the usual places.


Covid up-date

I’m really relieved to say that our covid numbers have drastically reduced. We now only have 2 pupils coming to the end of their isolation period. I’m praying hard that we get to the end of term without having to take any further action. Obviously, we’ll let you know any changes. Please continue to consider doing lateral flow tests twice a week with your child as a precautionary measure.


Christmas Lunch

Christmas lunch is on Wednesday 8th December. Please make sure you have funds on Parent Pay if you wish your child to have one.


Enjoy your weekend!

Mrs Griffith

Support a SuperHairo - Little Princess Trust

Emily O in Year 5 and her Cousin Eva (Year2 LVS) are having their long hair cut on 18th December 2021 and donating it to the Little Princess Trust. This hair is used to make wigs for children and young adults who have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. As well as the donated hair the trust use any money that is raised to make the wigs and also towards essential research into treatments of childhood cancer.


If you or your children would like to sponsor Emily, we have a cash box in school or click here for a Just Giving link.  She would be very pleased with any support we can give for her doing such an amazing thing!

6W Art 

As part of our WW1 topic, we have been writing letters from soldiers in English and improving our sketching techniques by drawing soldiers in art. We have brought both skills together and created a piece of art which represents the importance of correspondence during the war. We are really proud of our finished pieces.

School Term Dates

Please see here for term dates:


Although tempting as we have not been able to travel freely for so long, please do not book holidays or family days during term time.  These will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM.  Thank you.

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

Mrs J. Griffith, Mrs C Barnes, Miss S. Harding, Mrs F Fargher


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).
