New Starters

New Starters 2020

Firstly, welcome to Holy Trinity Church School. We are so pleased that you have joined our very special school and we look forward to seeing you in September. Because of the current Covid-19 situation that we find ourselves in, we may not be able to provide our normal induction process. We believe in gaining a strong understanding of our children and parents. The process that we have used for the last few years has been focused on transferring the secure attachment your child feels towards you to the teachers in school, so they are able to settle quickly and confidently into school life. This process will be harder to achieve this year, but we will strive to do our very best to provide your child with the best transition into our school.

Below there is a wide variety of information that is important. We have recorded a video tour of the school if you were unable to visit that you can share with your child and a welcome from the three teachers in EYFS.

There are also a number of documents that will need to be signed and returned and these have been emailed to you.

The link below is of a letter that will have been emailed to you.
