Newsletter 33 - 7th June 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,


We do hope you all enjoyed your half term break.


This week is National Volunteer Week and I’d like to extend thanks to all those who volunteer at school. The PTA, our resident gardener and helpers, parent reading volunteers and all of you who have signed up to volunteer at our Summer Fair!  However, I’d like to especially thank the Governors for the time they volunteer for the school – they are all vital to the work we do and their input is invaluable, thank you Governors.

Just a reminder about Sports Day next Thursday 13th June:


Below are the timings for the sports day events. Parents are invited to come along to cheer your child/ren on!

We pray for dry weather so the plans can go ahead. In the event of rain, we will advise of alternative arrangements as soon as possible.



Internet Safety Day at Holy Trinity – 11th June

We have arranged workshops for the pupils during the day. In addition, you are invited to come along to the Parent Workshop in the hall at 6pm to hear the steps you can take as parents to ensure your children are safe online. Please click here to book on to the workshop just to give us an idea of numbers.  We are requesting a contribution of £5 to cover the costs of this day so please use ParentPay to add your contribution so that the day can go ahead.

Enjoy the weekend,


Mrs Griffith

Fanatic About Football!

On Wednesday afternoon, we took two teams to a football tournament at Ascot Football Club. We played against St. Francis, St. Michael’s, South Ascot, Cheapside and Dedworth Middle. Our B team won one match, drew two matches and lost two matches. They played really well and gained confidence as a team as the tournament progressed. Our A team won three matches, drew one and lost one.  They were only beaten by Dedworth Middle School to come a superb second out of the six teams and were awarded medals – congratulations!


Well done to all the boys! It was a great afternoon! Thank you to Mr Nicoll, Mrs Hunter and Miss Harding, and thank you to all parents who were able to come to support the teams at the tournament.  

Savan's School Fundraiser

On Saturday, Savan swam, cycled and ran, in the Henley children’s triathlon. He is so close to hitting his fund raising target & we’ll be leaving the sponsorship page open for one more week and then all funds will go to the PTA. 


Please please make a donation to Savan's fundraiser here .. thank you. 

Bags 2 School

Please note that the Bags 2 School will be collecting from Holy Trinity at 9am next Tuesday.  Bags can be left on the day at school drop off up to 9am. Please place your bags next to the outside office wall.  You will see where some staff have left theirs.  This is a good earner for us and good for sustainability too!  Please see here for what can and can't be included in your bags.  Many thanks.  


Increasing numbers of children are arriving at school late and several children are arriving late for school on a regular basis.  Children must be in school before classroom doors shut promptly at 8.45.  Late arrivals are disruptive for the class, teachers, assembly, the kitchen, school office and the children themselves.  All children arriving after 8.45 are   given a late mark in the school register which remains part of their ongoing school record.  Please make every effort to get your children to school on time.
