Dear Parents and Carers,

What a way to finish this first term with a ‘Halloween’ Themed Mufti day!  It was lovely to see so many happy, smiley faces walking in this morning. Please see some photos below.  Thank you for your support and monetary donations towards the PTA funds.

School Clubs

Many of our clubs are already arranged in bubbles.  For those clubs which have children from more than one bubble, we have discussed and agreed with providers how to split groups up across spaces so that there is no mixing between bubbles during the club.  In this way, all of our clubs can continue under the latest guidance. 

Vacancy (Full Time TA for Maternity Cover)

We will be recruiting a full-time TA to cover maternity leave from January 2022.  Please contact the office for more details should this be of interest.

Bags 2 School 

There will be a Bags 2 School collection on Tuesday 2nd November - the first day back!  So we invite you to have a good clear out during the holidays. 


Finally, wishing you all a wonderful half term holiday with your family.  We look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 2nd November 2021.

Living the School Games Values

Congratulations to Ethan, Kate, Cathy, Sam, Ophelia and James who have been awarded wristbands for demonstrating the School Games values of self-belief or teamwork during the Benchball and football inter-house competitions this half term.   



Year 5 Ravenous Readers

Here are Year 5's Ravenous Readers of the week!


Year 6 Trench Models - WW1 Topic

Year 6 have been working on designing and building our own trenches to support our understanding of what life was like on the Western Front in WW1.  We researched trench life to find out about what the structures and layouts were like. We have included details such as periscopes, duck boards, ladders and sniper posts to try and make our models as realistic as possible.  These go together with our non-fiction writing with the aim that people can really get an experience of WW1 trench life.

PTA News

Year 6W raised a fantastic £143.50 at the cake sale last Friday!  Thank you to everyone who provided bakes and bought something at the sale.

The children looked great in their mufti day outfits – thanks for your donations.


Pumpkin Carving Competition

The Pumpkin Carving Competition payment is now on ParentPay.  Please make payment and don’t forget to email with a picture of your spooktacular creation.  We look forward to going out pumpkin spotting on the 31st!


Silent Auction

Some parent volunteers have kindly come forward to offer their help with the Silent Auction, so the popular Christmas Silent Auction is now going ahead!  If parents are able to source any donations through their business or employer, please let Inga Kacerauskaite know via Classlist.


Christmas Tree Express

This year the PTA are working with the Christmas Tree Express who have helped schools across the country to raise vital PTA funds. 


If you would like to support us and order your Christmas Tree, please complete the flyer below and return with cash payment to the PTA postbox located in the school office by Monday 8th November.  Trees will be delivered to the school on a specified date, bagged and ready to collect (TBC).


In order to go ahead with this, we require a minimum order quantity.


The Nordmann Fir is one of the most important species grown for Christmas trees due to its attractive foliage, with needles that are not sharp and that do not drop as readily as other varieties. It will last the whole of Christmas and will look grand on its own or decked with all the ornaments you can find. Being a natural product, sizes are not exact but will be within the range.

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.  These will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored 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).
