About Holy Trinity CE Primary School
Holy Trinity is a co-educational, Anglican denominational, voluntary-aided primary in Dalston, Hackney. Classes are mixed ability, with a typical ratio of one teacher and one assistant to a maximum of 30 children. Holy Trinity is a member of Primary Advantage, a collaboration of schools working together to improve and maintain education standards.
The school has an established relationship with the local CofE church, also called Holy Trinity, and is a short distance from the Catholic denominational Our Lady & St Joseph Primary School. Approximately 215 pupils aged 3-11 are on the school roll.
Values and vision
The school’s approach is entwined with its Christian outlook. In the spirit of “do to others as you would have them do unto you”, Holy Trinity aims to establish a clear understanding of rights and responsibilities for all. It also prides itself on providing secure yet thriving educational surroundings which can inspire pupils and staff alike, and on instilling an ethos in children that will stand them in good stead for the future.
Maths is an important and engagingly taught subject in all Primary Advantage schools. Pupils first learn by using objects such as counters and beads, before moving on to pictorial representations such as charts.
“Pupils learn and develop their skills rapidly. Teachers are able to track accurately how well pupils are doing, and what they need to learn next. Pupils are encouraged to check their own learning by talking to their partners. They also regularly highlight their targets to indicate if they have achieved them, or if they still need to work at them.”
