You are my brother, you are my friend
You are my sister, our love should never end
Whatever colour our skin or our hair
Let us live together. This is our prayer.

May our friendship never cease
Lift your banners high
We will sing in every land
Lift your banners high
For in Jesus' name we stand.

Policies, Reports and Performance

Good attendance is linked with achievement in school, this is why here at Trinity All Saints we consider arriving at school on time and attending every day extremely important.


EVERY SCHOOL DAY COUNTS


Children who come to school regularly are more likely to:



  • Achieve good standards of work

  • Get on well with other children and have good friends

  • Develop positive attitudes to work which will help them later on in life whatever their choice of career may be in adult life


Children who are frequently absent are more likely to:



  • Fall behind in their work

  • Find it difficult to make and keep friends

  • Be unhappy at school

  • Have a poor attitude to work

  • Get involved in crime, drug use and anti-social behaviour


Of course some absences are unavoidable.  If a child is genuinely ill then we understand why he/she needs to stay off school.  We know that parents want the best for their children, and we want to encourage parents to make their child's education a priority, so that at Trinity All Saints C of E Primary School children can achieve their best.  Regular attendance at school is an important part of helping your children to achieve.  Attendance at school has a direct effect on academic achievement, this is particularly marked when our children enter Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 because of Standard Assessment Tasks and Tests and again at upper school because of public examinations.  No pupil should register an attendance score of less than 95%.


Please do all you can to:



  • Ensure your child attends regularly and arrives on time

  • Contact us at an early stage if there are any problems, so that we can seek a solution and support your child effectively

  • Do not allow your child to stay off school for a trivial reason, the absence will not be authorised by school

  • Arrange Doctors/Dental appointments out of school hours.  Your child should attend school on the day of any appointment to minimise the time lost in lessons

Pupil Premium Reporting


to Parents 2018-2019 updated July 2019


Please view our Full Report here 


Please download our Pupil Premium Policy September 2018


Principles: At Trinity All Saints Primary School we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of pupils, including the more able.




Overview of the School:  


We ensure that appropriate provision is made for all pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.


In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.


We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupils the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.


All children’s progress and outcomes are carefully tracked and evaluated to ensure they achieve their full potential. The impact and use of Pupil Premium Grant Funding is evaluated each year.


Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.


It is very important to note that at Trinity All Saints Primary School all children are seen as individuals and as such, whether they are entitled to Pupil Premium Grant Funding or not, can still access interventions and other strategies to break down their barriers to learning, ensuring that all our children reach their full potential. For example an intervention reading group may include both pupils entitled to the grant funding and those that are not. The school uses its budget to ‘supplement’ its educational objectives for the funding so that any child can be included if this is going to be a positive action to enable them to achieve.


Summary & Objectives of Pupil Premium spending 2017 - 2018:


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was and will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement of identified pupils by:


Providing quality non teaching support for every year group to ensure small group work and 1-1 interventions were delivered throughout the year in all areas of the curriculum.


Reducing attainment gap between those pupils eligible for PPG and those who are not.


Improving school attendance of those pupils eligible for PPG.


Improving family engagement for those pupils eligible for PPG.


Providing additional teaching and learning opportunities through trained Teaching Assistants and / or external agencies.


Assessing every child individually in order to deliver targeted phonics teaching to all year groups.


Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in writing and mathematics.








Number of pupils and pupil premium grant (PPG) received

Special Educational Needs or Disabilities - SEND


The Policy document can be downloaded HERE


LOCAL OFFER FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OR DISABILITIES (SEND)


Trinity All Saints C of E Primary School is a fully inclusive school. We aim to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).  This document is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure we support our pupils, including those with SEN, in order that they can realise their full potential.  It may not list every skill, resource and technique we employ in order to achieve this, as these are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual pupils.


Children are identified as having SEN when concerns are raised by parents/carers, teachers or the child; or their progress has slowed or stopped and the interventions, resources etc. put in place do not enable improvement.  Once this occurs, we have specific needs-based plans (IEPs) which help support their development and accelerate progress. Each child’s IEP will be planned by the class teacher.  It will be differentiated accordingly to suit the pupils’ individual needs.  This may include additional support by the teacher or classroom support assistant. Children at this school make good progress and achieve in line with other school nationally with SEN.  Other useful documents such as our SEN and Inclusion Policies are available on the school website.  If you would like any further information about what we have to offer please do not hesitate to contact us directly.


 Further Information...

Statutory Phonics


Please follow the link  to obtain further information about phonics testing. Department for Education further information  


Phonics  At Trinity All Saints School early reading is taught using synthetic phonics as the main approach. In Nursery children are taught listening skills, to tune into and differentiate between sounds; skills which are vitally important foundations for reading. From Reception children are systematically taught the phonemes (sounds). They are taught in a fun, multi-sensory way using songs and actions (from the Letterland scheme), together with the shape of the letters. Children are taught to blend the sounds to read words and to segment (split up) words to hear the individual sounds for writing. They are also taught ‘tricky’ words which do not follow the phonic rules.




We use a variety of programmes from the internet to support our teaching of phonics. We recommend the following:

https://phonicbooks.wordpress.com/2011/03/13/how-to-say-the-sounds-of-letters-in-synthetic-phonics/

http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/freeIndex.htm

Reading  At Trinity All Saints children read in Guided Reading groups led by an adult focusing on different reading skills. The children are encouraged to read at their own pace. Follow up activities, discussion and questioning ensures that they have understood what they are reading. All the Guided Reading books are colour banded for different reading levels and each reading band includes books from different reading schemes so that children experience a range of genres, text types, authors and illustrations. The children are encouraged to use the school library as part of the ‘real book’ approach to reading. Story time in class throughout the school is a very important time of the day.

Friends of Trinity 2019 Flyer/Events


Our PTFA is a registered charity - please visit the Charity Commission


INTRODUCTION


A very warm welcome to our school.  We realise it can be strange and a little nerve racking joining a school and there always seem to be so many questions to ask!  If you have any questions after reading this sheet, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Parnham (our Parental Involvement Worker) or Mrs Russell (our Headteacher).


WHY DO WE HAVE A PARENTS, FRIENDS, TEACHERS ASSOCIATION (PTFA)?


We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTFA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years.  In its time the PTFA has raised many hundreds of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.  Our PTFA is known as - Friends of Trinity All Saints


But it is much, much more than just fundraising.  Friends of Trinity All Saints exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to socially bring staff, parents, carers, and friends together in support of the school working towards a common goal.  And it’s fun!  Obviously as in any organisation, there are times when it is more challenging, but with the continued support of parent/carers and staff, Friends of Trinity All Saints has always succeeded in its efforts.


HOW DO WE RAISE MONEY?


As in most schools, the majority of funds are raised through the events that we run.  Some of our most popular events are the Fairs and social get togethers.  We have printed tea towels, had fashion shows and ladies pamper nights, summer barbecues and bingo nights!


So you can see there is always something going on!  We always try and respond to the children’s requests for events and it is truly the icing on the cake to see them having fun at the events or enjoying the use of new equipment that Friends of Trinity All Saints has donated to school.


HOW DO WE SPEND THE MONEY RAISED?


It is at our meetings that the decision on how to spend the money is taken.  Usually, our headteacher will have a ‘shopping list’ of items that the school would like to purchase.  Sometimes this will be as a result of the children asking for something and voted on through the School Council.  Other times it will be resources to improve a particular area of the curriculum or school environment.  In the main the Friends of Trinity All Saints funds are the ’extras’ not provided by the school budget, that make our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting, for example, school trips and playground equipment.


Money is spent quickly.  That way, you can be sure that in supporting our school, your child will feel the benefit. 


HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?


There are lots of ways you can help and support your child through Friends of Trinity All Saints.  Offering to help before events or at other times during the year is so valuable – it really is a case of ‘many hands make light work’.  It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you can’t come into school.  There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets.  We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the unseen help that exists in school.


You can, of course, come along to our meetings and give us your ideas for fundraising events- this is also the time to ask questions and voice your opinion.


You can help by letting us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use – anything is valuable to us.  You can do this by either providing your details to the school office or at the next meeting.


And finally, we are always extremely grateful to receive any donations.


We hope you now know a little bit more about Friends of Trinity All Saints. On behalf of all the children we would like to thank you for your very valuable support which enriches their learning experiences and makes their time in school so enjoyable.


With your help we can make a difference.


Helping to provide the memories that we all cherish.

At Trinity All Saints we value the interest and time parents spend helping their children and the school as a whole.  We are working continually to improve the breadth of opportunitiesavailable to our children.


Parental Involvement is about



  • Having positive parenting skills in terms of love, kindness, generosity, being responsive, supportive, and consistent, providing opportunities and taking an interest in children.    

  • It is about talking with and listening to children, helping with homework and discussing school.

  • Finding out more about what and how children learn in school so that parents have clearer understanding of how to help their child at home.

  • Creating opportunities for learning in and amongst everyday life, when getting to school by bus, on foot, or by car, shopping in a supermarket, cooking a meal, eating together, cleaning, washing etc.

  • Spending quality time together playing a game, playing with toys, going to the park, kicking a ball about, visiting places of interest, going for a walk.

  • Sharing experiences which can be enjoyed together.

  • Meeting the physical needs of the children in terms of ensuring they get good nights sleep, eat breakfast, supporting children in getting ready for school, organising and monitoring a child’s time.


The Benefits of Parental Involvement


For Children:



  • Increased support for learning

  • Improved confidence

  • Raised self-esteem

  • Higher motivation

  • Raised aspirations

  • Reduced absenteeism

  • Improved behaviour/more positive attitude

  • Greater success/achievement


For Parents:



  • Parents have/or develop positive attitudes towards school.

  • Parents attach greater importance to the value of children’s learning and education.

  • Parents become increasingly confident and are able to support and extend their child’s learning.

  • Support and advice for parents to develop their own learning and skills.


For School:



  • When similar schools are compared, those with strong home-school links have consistently fewer problems related to pupil work and behaviour.

  • Schools that work well with parents, share information and tackle misunder­standing and problems at an early stage; celebrate improved levels of achievement, enjoy positive pupil attitudes and behaviour.

 William Forster (Yellow House) 


Today all children have the right to a free education in Britain.


It was William Forster, a member of parliament for Bradford, who helped to make sure that there was a basic free ‘elementary’ education for all


children in England and wales.


William was born a long way away in Dorset in 1818, but settled in Bradford when he grew up because of the industry in the area. He was very successful in the wool trade and made lots of money.


The elementary Education Bill was introduced by William to Parliament in February 1870 and marked the start of a national education system.


Many people campaigned for children to have the right to an education, but it was William Forster who championed the education act that first made this law.


 


 David Hockney (Red House) 


Designs on Peace


David was born in Bradford in July 1937 and he always liked drawing.


His dad Kenneth, also an artist, liked most of his artwork to be practical. He designed, painted and made a huge number of posters and banners emblazoned with the message of peace. David went on countless peace marches and rallies with his dad in the late 50s and early 60s. They campaigned together against war and for peace.


David went on to study at Bradford College school of art and later at the royal college of art in London. Like other young men of his age he was expected to spend some time in one of the armed forces but he refused to fight or kill.


Later he was very active, along with his father in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and could be seen at rallies carrying banner and posters designed by his father, himself and his art school friends. On some pictures from this time you can see the CND sign, sometimes called the peace symbol. The symbol was first used in March 1958 and carried by hundreds of people campaigning against nuclear weapons. It helped them make their protest clear to the rest of the world.


 


 Margaret McMillan (Green House) 


“HUNGRY CHILDREN CANNOT LEARN!”


Today we take for granted many things that Margaret fought for!


Margaret McMillan was born in New York in July 1860. Her parents were Scottish and eventually took both Margaret and her sister back to Scotland. In 1877 Margaret began to train as a teacher and to be interested in the idea of equal rights for all people.


Margaret argued that everyone should have the right to education. From 1892 Margaret starting working in Bradford, where life for poor working families was terribly hard and schools for ordinary children not very good.


Many children still worked in mills and lots died before they became teenagers due to illness or accidents. In 1894 Margaret became the first woman on the Bradford school board (years before women had the right to vote!).


Because of Margaret’s efforts the city provided free school meals, health checks, PE, swimming baths and nurseries. Bradford was the first city in the country to do this for its children.


 


 Miriam Lord (Blue House) 


“HAPPY PEOPLE DON’T MAKE WARS!”


Miriam Lord was born in Bradford in 1885. Her father believed in equal rights and education for all and he brought his daughter up to believe that we should work together to improve life for everyone.


Miriam was inspired by the work of Margaret McMillan and became a teacher. She was the first Headteacher of Lilycroft Nursery School which opened in 1921.


Miriam set about creating a place where children of mill-workers were well cared for, well fed, were allowed to play, learn and be happy. She tried very hard to carry on Margaret McMillan’s work and to stress that happy, healthy children learn best and are most likely to live in peace and friendship.


To enable more children to have a better start in life, Miriam decided to raise funds to build a college to train teachers and show them how to provide an excellent education. As a result of her hard work the Margaret McMillan Teacher Training College opened in Bradford in 1952
