School Improvement

Holy Trinity continues to be an improving school and our ambition is for it to be a place where children thrive and love learning. Please see the areas we would like to improve this year. 

Spiritual Development

.Extend pupils’ understanding and use of prayer so that they can commit their deepest hopes and fears to God in quiet confidence

In Religious Education we aim to embed assessment which encourage progress and inform planning, teaching and learning.

Ensure that, by the time they leave the school, pupils have a more secure understanding of the key facts about the other faiths they study besides Christianity.

Teaching, Learning and Assessment

All teaching from Good to Great.

Consistent use of assessment in all lessons and subjects and develop questioning skills so children can think more deeply and be challenged.

Explicit teaching of science with assessment (STEM).

Effective and efficient use of time in learning sessions for sustained thinking and deeper challenge of tasks.

To develop opportunities for outside learning.
