The governing body of Holy Trinity CofE Primary School takes its responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children seriously; and to work together to support those children who are suffering harm. We aim to provide an environment in which children and young people feel safe, secure, valued and respected, feel confident and know how to approach adults if they are in difficulties, believing they will be effectively listened to.
