Newsletter 14 - 16th December 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well we have made it at last to the end of a very busy and long term.

You have, as ever, been very generous with gifts for us all. Thank you – we very much appreciate it.

A huge well done to KS2 for their wonderful Christmas Service on Tuesday evening at church. You all did brilliantly and it was so great to have so many of you there.

Our Christingle Service was really beautiful yesterday afternoon. It’s always such a lovely way to end our term and gets us into the festive spirit. There are Christingle Services at Holy Trinity Church on Christmas Eve – 3.30pm and 5pm should any of you wish to attend.


I wish you and your families a joyful and relaxing Christmas holiday and look forward to seeing you all on 4th January 2023!


Mrs Griffith

Change to Menu - First Day Back

Please note that there will be a change to the menu on our first day back at school on Wednesday 4th January.  Choices will be Roast Chicken, Vegetable Cottage Pie or Jacket Potato. 

The Incredible Years

Please find attached a link to a programme called ‘The Incredible Years’. This is being run by RBWM in the New Year and is a course designed for parents who may be struggling with their child(ren)’s behaviour and need some strategies and support. If you would like further information, the contact details are provided on the webpage and you can self-refer.

Please also see information below about Positive Behaviour Support Courses available for families in Berkshire.


To avoid disappointment book now for next term's clubs.  All club information can be found here on our website.

Thank you so much for your generous contributions to recent collections.  You raised £460.01 for the Royal British Legion in their Poppy Appeal this year and over £550 in the nativities and KS2 service for the Holy Trinity Church Hardship fund which supports local families.

School Term Dates

Please see here for term dates:


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.  

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).
