On Tuesday 27th September 2016, Her Majesty's Inspector came to visit Trinity to see how we have progressed since Ofsted last visited us in May 2012. I am incredibly pleased to share with you that HMI considered our school to still be good and the inspector also recognised the hard work of all the staff and children at Trinity over the last year and as a result standards have "risen considerably".

In summary some other key points the inspector noted are as follows:

  • The head teacher is well supported by other leaders, particularly the effective assistant head teacher who leads colleagues by example with strong classroom practice 
  • Trinity pupils are excited to learn 
  • Pupils demonstrate good attitudes to learning
  • Pupils are provided with a wide variety of opportunities, including music and sport
  • Pastoral care and well-being are taken very seriously and the school provides a caring and supportive environment 
  • Pupils at Trinity enjoy reading immensely 
  • Pupils of all abilities achieve well in reading 
  • Governors have a sound understanding of the achievement of pupils 
  • Safeguarding is effective 

Our next steps for further development at Trinity are: 

  • ensuring the governing body systems for evaluating the effectiveness of leaders' work are closely linked to the proposed actions in the school development plan 
  • ensuring that pupils develop skills in spelling that are age appropriate and accurate

It was a highly intense day, as to be expected, but it was an incredibly successful day which makes me even more proud to be the head teacher of such a great school with fantastic children, families and staff! Please feel free to read the full report which will be available on the Ofsted website (linked from our website) from the 4th of November 2016.

I extend my thanks to you all.

On Wednesday 12th October, we enjoyed a visit from the Devereux family during our collective worship time, who came in to tell us about the Jewish  celebration of Yom Kippur. The name "Yom Kippur" means "Day of Atonement,". It is a day set aside to "afflict the soul," to atone for the sins of the past year. Jews believe that this day is, essentially, your last appeal, your last chance to be entered into the book of life for the next year, to demonstrate your repentance and make amends. As part of this they told us that, at this time, Jews like to ‘throw’ their sins into flowing water where fish are because fish always have their eyes open and that symbolises God who is always watching. Jews would empty their pockets at this time of something such as stones to symbolise their sins. We had a go at modelling this by using marshmallows as our sins and edible fish on a paper plate. This was a very interesting talk and we thank the Devereux family for giving up their time for us.

We have had great fun across the school today (14/10/16). We have been in mixed up year groups for the morning, rotating around the school to experience a variety of mathematical problems and investigations with different teachers. This afternoon we have been back in our own classes linking mathematics with the arts. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the day and the teachers have been very impressed with how the children have worked together and supported one another.


Year 2 enjoyed their trip over to Barnwell this week. The weather was very kind to them as they had a lovely day for their outdoor adverntures. In the morning they explored the grounds and searched for mini-beasts in the woodland areas and studied these closer by looking at them through magnifying glasses. In the afternoon they went pond dipping and managed to catch lots of insects and classify these using grids to support them.
