Positive Comments:

“During this time during pandemic, the school have overall worked so hard to keep children’s education and wellbeing as the priority. I appreciate all Holy Trinitys hard work, effort and support. Thank you.”

“Many thanks for such dedication during the pandemic.”

“I have nothing to say just to thank you all.”

“Thank you everyone for your work. You are brilliant. My child is very happy to go to school every morning. Special appreciation to year 1 teacher (Alice Walker) for her ideas to teach to the curriculum, creativity and attention to every child.”

“In lockdown, I felt that the systems were perfectly pitched with a combination of online and zoom and enough flexibility to help ***** cope while giving him enough to do. Miss Bear was super proactive, kept in contact and was always quick to respond at any time when I had a question. *** loves her and is really keen to please her which has improved his effort level at school.”

“Great job by all.”

“Teachers are so supportive and caring thank you all.”

“Brilliant school. Everyone has been very supportive and always do their best to keep the children happy.”

“[Teachers] always try to help when I couldn’t access online work.”

“Thank you for your help and support for our kids and keeping them safe. Good luck.”

Constructive comments and actions

  1. A 5 point scale would have been easier to respond to for the questions.
  • Next time we will take this into account
  1. On child safety, while I feel that the school considers the children’s safety, I have not seen communication on it nor have I seen reinforcement of the Covid related guidance to parents.
  • Letters were sent and the website was updated but we take this into account and next time will text to ensure parents check bags for letters
  1. In my opinion lessons through zoom should be in fool [sic] school hours with same breaks as in school.
  • In the event of another pandemic, we would consider more zoom lessons but never for the full day due to ensuring the key worker children and vulnerable children have the correct provision in school

Thank you to all parents who took part in the survey:

Here are some of your comments:

What do you like most about the school? 

Friendly, village-like feel to the school. Staff are all really helpful. Communication between the parents and staff is spot on. 

The community feel about the school. 


Friendly staff where everyone knows each other. 

Interesting topics the children learn. 

The kindness of the headteacher and most of the teachers and Dale. 

It’s a cheerful and positive environment, helps children to learn and be happy. 

It feels like a family and very professional. 

What would you like us to do better at school? 

Several of you are asking us to improve our communication about their child’s progress – we are looking at ways to inform you more regularly.

More information about the creative learning that goes on (not just reading, writing and maths!) – as you know our focus has been on helping parents support their child in the core subjects so we do agree that you have been bombarded with information on the 3 Rs in most classes.

At each Parent Council meeting we discuss these issues as well as new initiatives. These are shared with you in the Parent Council section of the Newsletter


(these meetings are usually held on the first Friday of each month)
