Our primary concern as a school is the welfare and education of the children in our care. At Holy Trinity Primary School we do far more than just educate a child academically; we take great care to guide and model the future of the ‘whole child’. Every decision we make is guided by the interests and needs of our children.

Special Educational Needs (SEN)
At Holy Trinity Primary School our aim is to give every child a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. Sometimes children do encounter difficulties and challenges at school and our Special Educational Needs provisions and policy at Holy Trinity Primary School are designed to help children through these periods in their life. Our class teachers will sustain a good level of communication with parents and carers and discuss child’s particular needs on a regular basis.
On occasions it may be necessary for our staff to call upon further support from Essex Local Education Authority.
The LEA have access to a range of specialists including expertise in the following areas:
Speech and Language Therapy
It is our aim to ensure that Holy Trinity Primary School is a fully inclusive school where all children, whatever their needs and talents, feel included.
Gifted and Talented
Children with particular talents, in all aspects of school life, will always be encouraged and catered for at Holy Trinity Primary School. Miss Sarah Presland, our Gifted and Talented Children Co-ordinator, monitors the progress of our Gifted and Talented children, supports classteachers and manages opportunities for their development in and outside school hours.
SEN – What can I expect?
Our class teachers will review children’s progress with parents on a regular basis. As a school we operate an ‘open door’ policy where, whenever possible, your concerns can be addressed immediately.
Children with Special Educational Needs will have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) – a programme that addresses children’s specific learning needs. These are reviewed at least once every school term.
All cases of children with Special Educational Needs are managed at Holy Trinity Primary School by our SENCO—Mrs Jean Barlow a specialist in Special Educational Needs issues.
Our staff are dedicated to providing a sympathetic and nurturing environment for all children in an inclusive manner. As an inclusive school we firmly believe that all our children can make a full and positive contribution to school life.
Our team of teaching assistants play a vital role in all our work. Teachers and Teaching Assistants work with both groups and individuals in order to provide support both in and outside lessons.
If we cannot provide the support from within the school we can often make arrangements with external agencies to provide support. As with any issue that is causing you concern or worry, please come and talk to us, we are here to help.
