The curriculum is currently under review, and changes are being made following this.
At Holy Trinity, we take our learning very seriously and work hard to provide pupils with a broad and rich curriculum offering across the school. Our curriculum has been developed in line with The National Curriculum, Hertfordshire LEA and our stakeholders. We have taken into account the diversity and needs of our pupils; the well-being of all our children and staff and the rigorous demands of our parents and Governors.
Our core subjects of English and Mathematics are taught according to the Herts for Learning and ESSENTIAL Maths planning which both guarantee full coverage of the National Curriculum. Computing and Science also follow the county-wide planning.
As a Church school, we follow a very prescriptive programme of study ensuring that our children understand and appreciate other faiths as well as Christianity. Our emphasis on the well-being of our pupils cannot be understated and, as a result, PSHE is taught as a discrete subject through the Jigsaw Scheme of Work and all our children enjoy at least two hours of teacher taught sport and PE each week.
Foundation and Arts subjects are taught through a topic based approach. Curriculum maps are established across the school to ensure complete coverage in line with the National Curriculum. All curriculum maps are developed to meet the end of phase requirement as dictated by the Department for Education.
We try to provide our pupils with a wide range of opportunities throughout the time they are at our school. We review our curriculum annually, looking at the needs of our pupils and the community. We review the different opportunities for learning across the school, and ensure we include activities which enhance the learning and development of pupils holistically. Examples of this include our opera project for children in Year 5, camping on the school field, the development of Forest Schools and providing swimming for Year 3 pupils onwards.
At Holy Trinity CE School our vision for learning starts with the EYFS. We provide a safe and stimulating environment where our children can grow, learn and develop to be the best they can be. We are a fully inclusive school where no one will or can be left behind.
The overarching principles of the EYFS Framework guide our EYFS practice.
- every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
- children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships
- children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers
- children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.

The direct and systematic teaching of phonics is a key part in children’s ability to become confident readers. At Holy Trinity we use LCP Planning which follows the Letters and Sounds programme. We also adapt the teaching to ensure the changes in the national curriculum requirements are met.

RE Policy including Scheme of Work:
We teach science at Holy Trinity in order to nurture the natural curiosity and to enrich the experience our children have of the wider world. Science teaching is designed to encourage children to ask questions and to develop the skills needed to explore possible answers. Our curriculum is organized in line with the National curriculum framework to ensure a breadth and balance of science knowledge; covering the three traditional disciplines – chemistry, physics and biology.
