Our Discovery Curriculum
Through collaboration with our school community we have developed our Discovery Curriculum. Discovery is the process of finding information, a place, or an object, especially for the first time. We combine high standards with a broad, balanced, rich curriculum, rooted in the needs of our diverse, local community. We believe everyone has limitless potential and that all of our children can achieve. We challenge our children and ourselves to be the best we can be in a safe, and purposeful environment, while learning together through faith, fun and friendship. Our Christian vision and values underpin all of our actions to help us prepare our children for the world they are growing up in: they are our future.
The National Curriculum forms the foundations of our curriculum. All staff strive to achieve the highest standards from learners, in order for them to be exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their education and their future careers. Our curriculum is cohesive and progressive, with knowledge and skills that are built upon year-on-year but is also flexible to ensure that it remains relevant and stimulating and reflects the context of Holy Trinity within the wider world. Through this curriculum, staff inspire children to develop a love of learning.
We are committed to working in partnership with parents and we work hard with our families to knit the school into the fabric of our community. We are excited to have made our pledge to become a School of Sanctuary. This epitomises our commitment to ensure Holy Trinity is welcoming and an inclusive place for all. This is supported by the range of extended curriculum activities we provide for our children as well as joint activities with the church. We are a Children’s University and believe whole-heartedly in the extended curriculum to enrich learning and enjoyment.
At Holy Trinity learning is focused on individuals’ needs and abilities. We focus our teaching on assessment for learning, whereby we continually build a picture of our children’s development as learners, and share this with them, so we are able to design a purposeful curriculum that meets their needs. Staff provide a tailored approach to support children with specific needs, whether that is for children who have English as an Additional Language, any barriers to their learning and those who are gifted and talented.
As a school we know that Reading is the Passport to the World. We recognise that fluency in reading is the key to unlocking all areas of learning and a key indicator for future success in further education, higher education and employment. Fostering a love of reading is paramount to us at Holy Trinity to enable all ‘To be the best we can be: for God, for others and for ourselves’.

What is a Knowledge Organiser?
A Knowledge Organiser is a single page document that lists the important facts that children should know by the end of a topic. It is the minimum that needs to be known, rehearsed and stored over time in the long-term memory. They outline the starting point for the topic being learnt. Over the course of the topic the children will learn at a deeper and wider level.
