Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

School Council

 Here at Holy Trinity, we believe it is very important for all children to have a voice and express their thoughts and opinions. We are proud to have School Council representatives who ensure that all the views of children in their classes are heard.

School Council representatives meet on a regular basis with our Head Teacher - Mrs Gibbs-Naguar and Lead Teacher - Miss Khalid. During these meetings, all the representatives come together to discuss and debate ideas and suggestions put forward by their classes or teachers. The outcomes are then discussed further with classes and teachers which are then fed back in meetings.

There are many great changes, which have taken place all thanks to our School Council!

All the children at Holy Trinity know that this is their school and their thoughts and opinions ALWAYS matter!
