Information about this school
Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School is smaller than the average-sized primary school. There is a part-time Nursery and a full-time Reception Year class in the early years provision. Since September 2016, the school has been in a soft federation with St Jerome Church of England Bilingual School in Harrow, also led and managed by the executive headteacher. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is below average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is also below average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The governing body manages a breakfast club and an after-school club for pupils at the school.
