As of January 2018, Holy Trinity has had a Parent Council.
Once every half term, during school hours, the council meet with Headteacher Ceri Daniels, to discuss relevant issues. The P.C. is not a fundraising body like the PTA, nor is it a monitoring or accountable body such as the Governors. The P.C. hopes to be the voice of the parents and to help with strategic ideas and support the school as it seeks to continuously improve.
A parent councils role is to:
· enable parents to meet, share ideas and feed back to school
· give parents a voice and enable them to contribute to school decision making
· help develop a partnership between parents and school
· consult parents and advise school leadership and/or governing body of parents’ views
Please talk to the council representative for the year group your child belongs to, as they can bring your questions or concerns to meetings.
We are still looking for parents council member for some year groups. We require a parent for each year to have an effective group.
