Holy Trinity CofE Primary School is a Church of England voluntary controlled primary school and is linked with the Diocese of Guildford. Our school is situated in the village of West End and provides education for 4 to 11 year old children from the village and the surrounding area.
Holy Trinity CofE Primary School provides a stimulating, secure and supportive learning environment for children, offering a balanced and varied curriculum within attractive surroundings, building on our school values with an emphasis on literacy, numeracy and experiential learning.
We have extensive grounds, with five playgrounds and a large playing field. Our grounds are used for PE with plenty of space for children to play during break times. Our school field also provides an important resource for science, environmental studies and enhancing the curriculum. We also have a gated pond dipping area, sensory garden, woodland and a “natural area” for children to explore.
There are many other areas to support learning: SEN base, music room, small group room for peripatetic music lessons and group work.
People are our greatest resource. We welcome assistance from parents, grandparents and other adults in a variety of ways: listening to children read; working with small groups; accompanying visits or working in our resource areas.
At Holy Trinity CofE Primary School we have a very extensive and well equipped library incorporating a large area for quiet reading and research. All pupils are encouraged to borrow and enjoy the rich and varied selection of books.
We aim to prepare our children for the future, developing the skills and confidence to embrace tomorrow’s opportunities, using technology creatively to solve problems. Each class has an interactive whiteboard and networked computers with Internet access for small group work. Our ICT suite has 31 computers where children can make use of a wide range of software, screened websites and hardware. We currently have one class set of 30 Learnpad Tablets which can be used throughout the school using our WiFi network.
Music thrives in our school. We have a well-equipped music room, in which each class has regular weekly sessions. A variety of instrumental tuition is also available from our Surrey instrumental teachers.
We have a well-equipped hall for gymnastics and dance in addition to a large field and playground area for outdoor sports and games. Pupils in Year 4 and 5 have swimming lessons in the summer term at Gordon’s Secondary School.
Each year group has two classes with children and staff working closely together. Our considerable investment in support staff and volunteer help means children have a lot of adult support.
Reception children are based in their own accommodation and learn in a rich, stimulating and caring environment, both indoors and outside. They work and play by themselves, with other children and with adults. Children are naturally curious, creative and physical: so we encourage their natural interest in the world around them, provide resources and ideas to fuel their imagination and creativity and we balance quiet and focussed times with activities that capitalise on their energy and develop their physical skills.
Year 1 and Year 2 children are based together and all have immediate access to outdoor learning. In addition the Year 1 classrooms are attached to an outside canopy to enable learning outdoors to continue in all weathers. Lower school children have their own playground and older children volunteer to run clubs and act as ‘Buddies’.
Upper school children have a choice of two large playgrounds, one of which is solely for football the other is for alternative interests.
Both upper and lower school children are able to be together in the Retreat; this is a quiet area linking upper and lower school playgrounds.
In the summer months all children are allowed to play on the field at lunchtimes.
Our extensive grounds provide space to grow, learn and thrive. We have an annual Working Party Day for parents, staff, governors and children to help keep our school grounds looking tidy. Our gardening club and Eco-warriors help to keep the school looking attractive and over the last two years we have been close runners in the Blooming Schools Award.
