Newsletter 26 - 18th March 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,


We have a rising number of cases in school once again, so please be vigilant in looking out for symptoms. It seems this is a new, highly-transmissible variant. In a lot of cases, the children seem to display headaches, cold symptoms, tummy ache and sore throats as well as the cough and high temperature. We’d ask that you err on the side of caution and do LF tests, or book PCRs where you can. 


Thanks, once again, for helping us to try to contain numbers. I’m aware that other local schools have had to close classes due to high numbers and positive cases in staff. We really want to avoid this if at all possible!


Parents’ Consultation Evenings

We are pleased to be able to go ahead with face-to-face Parents’ Meetings with class teachers next week. These will take place in your child’s classroom and we ask that you please wear a face covering if possible. If you need to re-arrange due to isolation etc please contact your class teacher.


Enjoy a (hopefully) sunny weekend,


Mrs Griffith

PTA News

The Year 1 Bake Sale made a fantastic £222.40!  Thank you for all your delicious bakes and purchases, despite the dreary weather!


We hope the children enjoyed last week’s mufti – there were some fantastic costumes – thanks for all your efforts.


A little request for some parental help…


We had some parent helpers put themselves forward to assist with the gathering of auction prizes for our Christmas Fair.  We now need to think ahead for the Summer Fair.  If you could spare some time to help contact companies to request donations, it would really help and it’s always a great money spinner for the PTA. 


Please don’t assume lots of people will come forward and offer their time as this is often not the case.  Please message Alison Shukla or Carol Brown on Classlist or


As mentioned in previous Newsletters, our Chairs, Carol Brown and Alison Shukla are stepping down at the end of this school year.  We have not received any interest so far for filling this role.  If we do not have anyone come forward to volunteer, the PTA will fold.  No fundraising will continue for the school, Christmas Fairs, Summer Fairs, Film Nights etc.  If you are interested and would like to discuss what is involved, please contact, and Carol and Alison will be happy to meet with you to discuss the role further.

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.  Missing even one or two days learning can be detrimental to your child's learning. 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.  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).
