Welcome from the Headteacher: Mrs Vikki Wall BA(Hons) CEPQH
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website where I hope you find all information that you require easily accessible. I have been the Headteacher at Holy Trinity CEP School, for six years and before this I was a teacher in the school. I am passionate about Holy Trinity and the education we offer our children, we enjoy many successes in many different areas (particularly sports and music) and are proud of the achievements our children make, both individually and in team efforts. We are also proud host to many awards including platinum online safety recognition, best teacher awards and a huge amount of sporting trophies. We often welcome back to our school past students who pop by to say hello or ask for work experience and love to hear how they are progressing in their next stage of education. 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 our historic church, Holy Trinity, in Dartford High Street. Our vicar Reverend Martin Henwood is committed to the school and supports us in a number of ways including leading worship in school every Monday morning, and our children are familiar with the church due to regular visits.
Our 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 will give you a real feel to our school where I am confident you will agree that there is a real 'community and family' 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.
Message from Chair of Governors - Mr Abhijit Roy
I am writing to introduce myself as the new Chair of Governors at Holy Trinity CE Primary School. My name is Abhijit Roy and I have been part of the Governing Body since January 2014 when I was elected as the parent governor. At the end of the term I was appointed as a Foundation Governor on August 2019 by the Bishop of Rochester.
In my professional capacity, I practice as an IT consultant working in a lead capacity for major government departments and councils, delivering large transformation projects for the benefit of the organisation that need to embrace efficiency. To help me in my day job, I have obtained a degree in mathematics and another in Mechanical Engineering along with post graduate diploma in management. I am member of the British Computer Society and have been accredited with use of the title of charted engineer. I also volunteer to sit in the Kent County Council scrutiny committee as a parent governor representative, to represent the best interest of parents in education related matters.
Education has given me so much in my life. It has made me who I am and helped me and my family move nearer to our life goals. I therefore value education and its place in one’s life. I also believe that every child should have access to the right support in education, which will help them achieve their own goals in their lives.
As I was elected to the chair position, I was fully aware of the responsibilities that lie ahead of me. My previous chair, Rev. Martin Henwood, is not only an inspiration to most of us in the community and in the school, but his reverence is also well known in the education circles and is respected by all. Matching up to his expectation is a tall order, and I am humbled by the support I received from him and my fellow governors. Having served with him, I am fully aware how crucial his guidance will be to us in the coming days, and he has agreed to continue with us in the near future.
As Governors, we also share a common objective with the wider school community – working in partnership with the head teacher, the staff and the parents and carers to ensure that every child can succeed and reach their full potential. We wish to carry on all the good things that made this school into a successful community institution. However, in our aspirations of becoming one of the best schools in Dartford, we also wish to bring in experience and learning from other sectors that have been successful. This will give the school a better perspective to help understand what it needs to do to reach the next level. We will aim to provide a full all-round growth for every child, be it reading, writing, science, mathematics or ICT. Our School is recognised for being one of the best schools in Dartford for sports and we will need to continue to invest in the well-being and health of every child.
We are now living in extraordinary circumstances. We are fighting an enemy we cannot see and not a day goes by where we are being made aware of the danger it poses. Our ways of life are challenged, but the human spirit is not to be dampened. We will come out the other side, but during this transition we do need to do our part. Our head teacher and the staff need our support to ensure our children are safe and it is important that we follow the rules set from time to time. The School’s Website is the main source of information and this is updated regularly, and please keep an eye for communication from the school via Parent Mail.
We are always open to suggestions, so If you have a concern or a point of view to share please let us know. We can be contacted via a letter to the School Office or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the coming months and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and to ensure you that I am committed and very proud of our school and I will continue working with Mrs Wall and her Staff Team, Governors, Parents and Pupils as we all together strive to make Holy Trinity CEP Dartford an Outstanding School.
With best wishes
Chair of Governors
