Dementia Friendly School

We are proud to be working in partnership with the Diocese of Lichfield and Holy Trinity Church, Oswestry, in becoming a dementia-friendly school.

Our aim is to support all in our school community (pupils, staff and families):

  • to be aware of dementia and to understand how to stay in step as patterns change through advancing dementia.
  • affected by dementia to be welcomed, understood, respected and supported.

Our 2023-2024 School Action Plan:

1. To hold a whole school worship for pupils, staff and parents around demetia.

2. To send information leaflets out to all families

3. Develop links with New Fairholme Nursing Home

OFSTED REPORT – November 2023

Dear Parents / Carers
As you will remember, we were inspected by Ofsted at the end of November. I have great delight in enclosing the final inspection report for you to read. I am absolutely thrilled that the school has been judged ‘GOOD’ in all areas, and this is a testament to the hard-working and dedicated team of staff we have at school. We will continue to work hard to ensure your children have the best opportunities for learning.
If you have any questions about the report, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Laura Hopley
Executive Head

Oswestry Advertiser: Inspectors praised the academy for its core value of ‘hope’ being at the heart of the curriculum, stating that; ‘pupils love coming to Holy Trinity.’ “These responsibilities include acting as reading buddies and worship leads. Pupils learn how to make the right choices, so that they can keep themselves safe outside of school.

“The curriculum ensures pupils develop a strong sense of what hope might mean.“For example, pupils say, ‘They hope to do well in school and hope for everyone to be safe.’

Reception Class children

Do you have a child starting reception class?

If so, your child will be participating in the reception baseline assessment (RBA)
within the frst 6 weeks of starting reception. The purpose of the assessment
is to provide the starting point for a progress measure that will help parents
understand how well schools support their pupils to progress between reception
and year 6.

2023 Information for parents: reception baseline assessment (publishing.service.gov.uk)

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to Miss Wright, Mrs Meddins or Mrs Rhodes-Leader.
