At Holy Trinity, we respect and care for your child, encourage self-discipline and responsibility and work so that School is a place where your child:
- feels safe
- learns self-respect
- learns to respect others
- takes responsibility for their own actions and belongings
- produces the best work possible
- develops to his or her full potential both academically and socially in a caring, happy and stimulating environment.
We ask you to:
- provide a broad and balanced curriculum for your child
- monitor your child’s progress regularly and send you a written report annually
- provide opportunities for you to discuss your child’s progress
- share appropriate developments, approaches or initiatives in education with you including relevant and requested training events

- provide you with regular news of the activities of the H.T.S.A, of which you are automatically a member
- keep parents informed about school activities through regular letters, news sheets and website and notices about special events
- support parents pastorally, when requested
We ask you not to:
- ensure we have up to date information in case we need to contact you
- support our policies on behaviour, uniform and homework
- support the staff in their work for the benefit of your children
- attend parent information evenings
- ensure your child comes to school every day unless they are ill in which case please let us know
- make sure that children arrive in time for registration at 8.55 am (gates open at 8.45 am)
- praise children for good behaviour and work
- keep us informed of anything at home that may affect their approach to school
- read newsletters so that you can talk to them about what is going on
- name all items of school clothing including P.E. kit and any personal other items of clothing bought into school

- smoke on the school premises or grounds
- crowd the doors, corridors and footpaths at the beginning and end of the day
- allow your child to play on school equipment
- have your child’s ears pierced (except during the summer break) as this prohibits them from taking part in physical activities if the earrings cannot be removed.
- Use social media to “air” any concerns but speak to the school directly.
