Changes to the School Leadership Team
Following the news of Mrs O’Brien’s departure at the end of the school year, Mrs Griffith and the Governing Board of Holy Trinity will be taking this opportunity to restructure the Senior Leadership Team.  This will mean the creation of two new Assistant Headteacher roles, both of whom will work collaboratively with each other and the Headteacher across the whole school. The Assistant Head positions will have class teaching responsibility as well as time designated to fulfil their leadership roles.  Advertisements for the role will be issued in the coming weeks.

Sports Day - One for the Diary

Our Sports Days this year will be held on Thursday 11th June.  We have planned Wednesday 17th June and Thursday 25th June as back up dates just in case we need them due to inclement weather!


Head Lice - Time to do some Bug Busting

There are plenty of head lice in school once again.  Please take the opportunity at the weekend to do a spot of Bug Busting with conditioner and a nit comb to see if your children are playing host.  Don't forget that many head lice are immune to insecticidal treatments on sale and the Bug Busting method might be more effective.  Lotions with a physical rather than insecticidal action are also effective against both lice and eggs and it's thought that lice can't become to immune to these.  Good luck with your weekend Bug Busting!
