Information about this school

Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School is larger than the average-sized primary school. The school has a part-time Nursery and two full-time Reception classes. There is currently one Year 6 class, three Year 3 classes and two classes in Years 1, 2, 4 and 5. Pupils come from a wide range of ethnic groups, with the largest group being from a White British background. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is average. The pupil premium is additional government funding given to schools for disadvantaged pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or children who are in local authority care. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is average. The school runs a daily breakfast club and a range of after-school clubs. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.
