Our school library is open three evenings a week (times and dates are publicised in our newsletter and subject to change).
All pupils can become members of our library and families with pre-school age children can join our library and borrow any resources. We have a library loyalty card – regular visitors can get their passport stamped and the cash the passport in for prizes and free gifts.
The governing body of Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School agreed on 14th May 2003 that the school should continue to provide sex education for its pupils. A policy for Sex Education was drawn up following consultation with parents, staff and governors.
Throughout the school children will learn about relationships, families and basic health awareness, but in the later stages of Key Stage Two it becomes very important for children to learn some of the more formal aspects of Sexual Health Education.
In Year 6 children take part in a major programme of Sexual Health Education. Parents will be notified before this programme begins.
Details of the programme can be found in the approved School Sex Education Policy. Prior to the implementation of the sessions parents have the opportunity to view plans for the programme.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of the sex education programme, but not from the National Curriculum elements of study.
We are a Church of England School and proud of our status. RE is not within the National Curriculum, but is a compulsory subject. We follow the Essex agreed ‘RE Matters for Every Child’ RE Syllabus – this is broadly Christian in content, but does visit aspects of other major world religions.
