Easter Services

We would like to congratulate the children, staff and church team for the wonderful Easter services that took place this week.  They were very well received and included song and the telling of the Easter story through expression of art, music, dance and drama.  Many parents emailed the school to express how much the services had touched them. One parent quoted the year 6 dance performance as being ‘stunning’ another as ‘wonderful’.  “It was so moving it actually brought tears to my eyes” was quoted by another.  We also received the following email from a parent:


'I wanted to convey my sincerest congratulations on a wonderful Easter Service. It reflected the full breadth of the school; encompassing reception children through to year 6 and allowed each age group the appropriate forum to showcase their skills and capabilities.
It was engaging throughout for the children and parents alike. 
It was moving, entertaining and informative in equal measure and a great summary of the true symbolism and meaning of Easter.
Many thanks for all you, the staff and the Vicar are doing to make our children happy, confident and well-rounded young people.'

Thank you so much to those who took the time to offer the school positive feedback.  It really does make a difference and is very much appreciated by staff.  


The church team were particularly impressed by the art work from year 4 and this will remain in church to be displayed in the church for the community to view.   Well done to everyone involved for the hard work and effort put into this celebration and for the lovely comments received this year.

High 5 Netball Tournament at Charters School 

On Monday after school three teams from Holy Trinity took part in a fast-paced High 5 netball tournament at Charters. This was a first for many of the children. They competed against teams from St. Michael's, Cheapside and South Ascot Village School. We are still awaiting the results but the children are to be commended for their enthusiasm and flexibility. Well done to all who took part: Will, Grace, Lara, Molly, Scarlett, Tianna, Manika, Belle and Nellie from years 5 and 6 and Grace, Charlotte, Alisha, Sadie, Sophia, Sophie B, Woody, Max VS, Jenson, Hannah, Savannah, Summer, Ava and Abigail F from years 3 & 4. Also, a thank you to Miss Prince, Miss Glenister and Miss Harding who attended the tournament with the children, and Mrs Boaler who travelled back to school to pick up netball bibs for the teams.

New Lunch Menu - From 24th April 2019

Wilson Jones will have a new menu in place when we get back after the Easter Holidays.  Menus will be sent home in book bags today and a copy is available here:


Please note that the choices on the first day back after school on 23rd April will be Chicken Burger, Vegetarian Hot Dog or Jacket Potato and not as published on the new menu.  

Food Allergies

We have several children at Holy Trinity with serious, life-threatening food allergies. We take any threatening comments made towards these children about their allergies extremely seriously. Subsequent consequences will reflect this.  We ask that you take the time to talk to your children about the serious nature of such comments and impress upon them the zero-tolerance stance we take on such matters.

Orders for Class Photos

If you would like to order class photos and have them delivered to school, please return your order to school by Thursday 25th April at the latest.  Many thanks. 

Who is Picking Your Child Up from School?

For safeguarding reasons, please make sure you let your child's class teacher know if someone different will be picking your child up from school.  

PTA - Use of Classlist

The PTA are delighted with the large uptake of Classlist as our new PTA Forum for committee communications. We have been asked by several parents to clarify the guidelines on when to use Classlist:

  • Official Committee Communications - PTA and School Fundraising Events, Class Rep reminders etc
  • Closed group function is available for party invitations etc between individuals
  • If you are unsure please contact your Class Rep or Private Message one of the Committee reps.
  • Strictly inappropriate: business advertising, personal advertising, advertising of clubs or other non PTA related material. Any inappropriate  will be removed in order to ensure this is a positive and productive school fundraising committee site.
  • If there is a concern regarding PTA operations then this should be reported to the Chair of the PTA
  • Failure to adhere to these terms will initiate the removal from Classlist.
