We are really pleased that from the 28th September we will be able to offer hot school dinners to the children again. They will have the choice of hot dinners or their own packed lunch and we will no longer be offering a grab bag option. Please use Parent Pay to pay for hot dinners for years Y3 – Y6. Hot dinners for Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 are still free to you. We will send out a menu next week.
***Please note that on Thursday 1st October the menu will be Fish or Fish Fingers and Chips and not the published option. This is Census Day and uptake of school meals on that day affects our budget! Please could as many children as possible have a hot dinner that day???***
Symptoms of Colds, Flu, The Other Thing...
We found this article and symptom checker really useful when trying to determine what might be wrong for ourselves and thought it might be useful for you too.
In order to be fully prepared for any future school closures, it would help us if you could please take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire. This will help us plan for such an eventuality. Many thanks for your input.
We hope you all have a happy, healthy weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday morning.

Thank you to everyone who prepared a manifest video and put themselves up for voting! All of the videos were fantastic and all the classes enjoyed watching them. Well done to our new House Captains. We're sure you'll work hard and do your best to represent your houses.

Key Stage One Buddies
This year we have started a buddy system in Key Stage One. Each pupil in Year 1 has got a buddy in Year 2 and we had great fun together this week. All the children brought in one toy or game from home to share with their buddy and it was fantastic to hear them chatting and laughing away together. Next week Year 2 will be helping their buddies with ICT. It’s a great responsibility and Year 2 are enjoying being positive role models for the younger years.

Wearing PE Kit for Clubs
As you know PE kit is to be worn for school on the days your children have PE. But what about clubs? We do not want children in school in football kits and basketball kits during the school day and if this is what they wear to those clubs they will need to get changed at the end of the school day. If your child wears usual PE kit to a club they may wear this in to school all day. School PE kit is worn to netball club so netballers can come to school in their PE kits on Thursdays.
Don’t forget the Holy Trinity Lockdown Recipe E-book is available to purchase on ParentPay until Friday 25th September. Thank you to those who have already purchased a copy and supported the PTA.
There is still Second Hand Uniform available so if you require any spare clothing, please message Alison Shukla via Classlist. All items are £2.
The AGM and first PTA Meeting is being held on Monday 21st September at 8.00pm in the School Hall with socially distanced seating. If attending, please enter the School Hall via the back of the hall door on Church Road. New Class reps and Committee will be voted in at the meeting.
Following the AGM, Classlist will be updated with the new Class Reps as Ambassadors. Please remember, Classlist is only to be used to communicate PTA/class related information.
