Welcome from the Headteacher: Mrs Vikki Wall BA(Hons)
It is with great pleasure that I welcome and invite you to enjoy our school’s website, where I hope you find all information that you require easily accessible. My name is Mrs Wall and I have been headteacher at Holy Trinity for just over two years; before this I was a teacher at the school and often find us welcoming back to our school past students who pop by to say hello or ask for work experience! I believe strongly in the curriculum we offer and continue to be extremely proud of the team that work tirelessly to ensure the best outcomes for our children.
We are proud of our strong Christian ethos and values and have with very close links to the historic church, Holy Trinity, in Dartford High Street. Our vicar Reverend Martin Henwood takes worship in school every Monday morning and the children are familiar with the church due to regular visits.
Our recent Ofsted judgement reported us as "good" in all areas, while our SIAMS inspection received 'outstanding' in all areas. I attribute this to the commitment of our dedicated staff and the strong family ethos evident within our school.
Our motto ‘Growing Tomorrow’s Leaders’ is a statement that we are incredibly committed to. Staff work hard to develop pupils’ independence, grow their resilience and teach them strategies to be successful in the world today while encouraging a well rounded, hard-working and positive attitude.
We hope that you find our website to be helpful; however no amount of browsing can replace a visit to our school where I am confident you will agree that there is a real 'community' feel. If you are a prospective parent please do contact us to make an appointment to see the school in action.
If you cannot find the information you want on this site, please contact the school using the enquiry form, by e-mail or directly by telephone. We will be pleased to hear from you.
Welcome from the Chair: Reverend Martin Henwood DL,
Vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Dartford
How can children learn to become happy responsible leaders? How do we help them change the world for the better, and to do so from whatever roles they will be taking up in their later life and work?
Our motto is “Growing Tomorrow’s Leaders” and we do this by giving the pupils a secure start in life, encouraging them to understand and use the values of the Christian faith, whilst being curious about the gifts of other faith traditions and none.
The adults at the school are passionate about giving the children a healthy approach to life, and to perform and progress at their academic and all rounded best. We encourage the children to dream dreams, to be imaginative, to care and share.
We practise the African concept of ‘Ubuntu’ and apply it to today’s modern setting to help children network across the whole school community, forming life long friendships, giving them the experience and confidence of relating across all age groups.
Martin arrived in Dartford 30 years ago and apart from 5 years at St Martin-in-the-Fields has lived and worked in north Kent. Martin is the Vicar of the Parish Church and was Chairman of our local NHS Trust from 2000 to 2006, commissioning an annual expenditure of £250m in health care. Martin has extensive experience in the private, public and voluntary sectors and can be found watching Ebbsfleet United during the football season.
