Holy Trinity CE Primary School

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

Swans

All Staff and Governors at Holy Trinity CE Primary School recognise that every child is unique. Pupils are entitled to a rich educational experience that offers excellent learning opportunities which both engage and inspire them to reach their full, personal potential. Our ultimate aim is to equip our pupils for the further stages of their educational journey and eventually independence in adulthood.

At Holy Trinity, we take a holistic approach to provision, going above and beyond academic education and striving instead to encompass the physical, spiritual, moral, social, artistic, creative and emotional aspects of every child's development. Encouraging each of our pupils to be the best that they can be is intrinsic in all that we do and the very heart of our mission here at Holy Trinity.

We are proud to offer your child a happy, welcoming environment that will support them to grow and develop into the amazing individual that they were born to be, enabling them to flourish both here at school and in the wider community. Our Holy Trinity Family is underpinned by the interwoven values of Love, Honesty and Respect which champion all pupils in their development. Through the every-day emphasis of these three Christian values, pupils are empowered to: 

  • Integrate themselves successfully within the Holy Trinity Community

  • Make progress

  • Achieve their best

  • Become confident individuals

  • Live fulfilling lives

Swans class is a Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) that provides a bespoke foundation for children with Speech and Language Difficulties and Autism, offering targeted support with the aim of enabling all pupils to make progress and achieve their identified outcomes. This smaller provision grants every pupil access to the mainstream curriculum alongside a tailored intervention programme designed specifically according to their individual needs.

At Holy Trinity, we rigorously acknowledge the fact that children often have needs that span across all four areas of SEND and that these needs may change over time. Our Staff are fully committed to identifying and providing for these needs, and we are proud to offer a stimulating and nurturing environment in which you can be reassured that your child will thrive. 

      Our Aims

Swans are powerful birds, and we chose this name for our SRP to reflect the longevity that is possible when pupils are awakened to the strength and beauty within themselves.

At Holy Trinity, we celebrate the excellence in every individual, building the confidence and self-esteem that will ultimately transform our pupils into contributive members of society as they embrace their uniqueness and spread their wings to become the very best that they can be.

Through our Swans class provision, Holy Trinity aims to:

  • Create a caring yet purposeful environment where there is a balance of focus between welfare and  achievement for all.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and differentiated to meet the needs of every individual.
  • Ensure the best possible progress for all using a holistic approach.
  • Support children to develop language and communication, social interaction and life skills
  • Encourage parents to take an active role within the Holy Trinity Community, enabling them to support their child’s learning at home and at school.
  • Promote independence for all.

Our Curriculum

Holy Trinity offers a broad and balanced curriculum that combines excellence in teaching with enjoyment in learning, providing our pupils with all the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to develop into well-rounded, happy individuals. Our curriculum is highly differentiated and personalised to meet the diverse and changing needs of our pupils. It is also aspiration-led to ensure that every child is engaged and motivated to learn from a rich diet of educational experiences.
