In March 2018 we received our Ofsted report which reflects on our visit by Elizabeth Stevens HMI in February 2018. It states that we continue to be a Good school and that, ‘The school is at the heart of the community and pupils enjoy taking part in many activities and celebrations in the village and local area.’ Click here to read the full report.
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, “The school is at the heart of the local community and pupils enjoy taking part in many activities and celebrations in the village and local area.” (Ofsted 2018) . This is because staff, children, parents 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, ‘Through Christ who strengthens us,’ (Phil 4:13) …value, dream and achieve!!
On the 28th March we were visited by a SIAMs Inspector, Mrs Kathryn Pym. The Final Report can be viewed by clicking here. The main headline is that, under the new SIAMs schedule, Tarleton Holy Trinity CE Primary School is judged to be a GOOD School overall – but judged 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.

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.
