We use a programme called Success For All to teach phonics and reading at Holy Trinity. This is a fun and interactive approach to teaching children to read and respond to questions about what they have read.
At Holy Trinity, literacy skills are at the heart of everything we do. Children are encouraged to discover the value of strong communication and the importance of Reading and Writing in all aspects of their futures.
Research shows that when phonics is taught in a structured way - starting with the easiest sounds, progressing through to the most complex - it’s the most effective way of teaching young children to read. It’s particularly helpful for children aged 5–7.
Schools within the Primary Advantage Federation have a strong commitment to improving children’s maths. Holy Trinity daily maths lessons lay the foundations for this critical life skill as teachers follow the popular and effective PA Maths programme.
Religious Education in a Church school should enable every child to flourish and to live life in all its fullness. (John 10:10). It will help educate for dignity and respect encouraging all to live well together, Statement of Entitlement (2019). Religious Education at Holy Trinity enables all children to explore religious beliefs and practises, some of which are located in the local community.
Physical Education is taught across the school by specialist coaches from BADU Sports. Using sports coaches means that our children are able to increase their knowledge regarding the rules of sports and understand the importance of team work and how fitness affects the body.
At Holy Trinity we believe that art inspires creativity, imagination and inventiveness. We believe that art gives our pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to engage and express responses to ideas and experiences.
As a church school, music forms an important part of our worship. We sing together in collective worship every day and for special celebrations we gather together as a school community and sing at our local church.
Spanish learning at Holy Trinity is based on practical communication and instilling a passion for language learning. Learning a new language is key to becoming part of the global community and we ensure that pupils at Holy Trinity have a solid foundation for this journey.
Using technology throughout the curriculum we believe every learner should be empowered, inspired and prepared. Technology is fundamental within Holy Trinity enhancing both teaching and learning from electronic delivery of lesson content (reducing our printing and monitoring our environmental impact) through to coding robots and creating rich, multimedia content shared across the world.
