  • Headteacher’s Message

    For prospective parents, or indeed anyone who is interested in life at THT,  our next Open Day is on 18th October 2023…click here for more details. We hope to see you then, if not before!!

    At Tarleton Holy Trinity we are very proud of all our children and all that they achieve. We have an excellent reputation in the local community, “Pupils walk into Tarleton Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School with a spring in their step in the morning. They are happy to attend this warm and nurturing school.

    Relationships between staff and pupils are strong. This helps pupils, and children in early years, to feel safe and happy.” (Ofsted 2023). This is because staff, children, parents, carers and governors all work extremely hard to ensure the best learning experiences for the whole school community. We have very high academic standards, but like learning to be fun – making sure that is more to life than ‘reading, writing and arithmetic’. We love art, music, dance, sports and PE and use enrichment days to help the children to experience these at their full. Being a church school is important to us, as everything we do is based on our embedded Christian Values. At THT we really do feel that, ‘Through Christ who strengthens us,’ (Phil 4:13) …we value, dream and achieve!!

    We love the fact that Ofsted and SIAMS continue to state that we are a GOOD school, with SIAMs also judging us as excellent in our Impact of collective worship and our Effectiveness of religious education.

    The partnership between school and home is essential – you will always find our staff willing to assist and listen. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of staff. To keep up-to-date with what’s happening at THT, keep reading our weekly Newsletters, log onto my Headteacher’s Blog, download our School App, or visit us on Facebook…there are so many ways in which you can keep in touch!!  Don’t forget…come and see us during our Open Day on 18th October 2023!!

  • What Makes Tarleton Holy Trinity Special?

    Our school motto is “Value, Dream and Achieve”

    It is important to all of us involved with the children at our school that they should receive the very best education: that they are given the skills to help them be successful in life, that they understand their part in the world and that they have a desire for life-long learning.

    We embrace and uphold the Every Child Matters agenda and it permeates throughout all areas of school life.

    We acknowledge that technology has a major role in their education and is constantly changing. We strive to keep up to date with the latest innovations and teaching methods.

  • Governors and the Church

    Our School is a Church of England Aided School, and, as such, maintains mutually supportive links with Holy Trinity Church. The Governing Body comprises representatives from Blackburn Diocese, Holy Trinity Church, the LA, the local Parish Council, parents, teachers and non teaching staff. The Church has the majority since it is responsible for the ethos of the school. The Governors work hard for the school and have wide ranging responsibilities, including appointment of staff, the curriculum, admissions to school, financial management amongst others. The Governors are also responsible for maintaining and extending the fabric of the building and must bear 10% of the costs for such works. This funding is supported by the fundraising of the FRIENDS of the school.
