Welcome to Holy Trinity & St John's CEP School.
We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
PEBBLES NURSERY - PARENT INFORMATION
From September 2017 we are suspending our nursery provision for this academic year. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and it has been done with the support of Kent County Council. While we are still heavily oversubscribed in Reception Year, we have unfortunately had a decline in Nursery applications due to the increase in the number of local private providers who are able to offer full time places, all year round. Should the situation change in the future we will notify all parents and advertise in the local media.
To develop confident, curious, independent, resilient, life-long learners within a Christian environment.
Our Christian Mission, Vision and Values are reflected in the distinctive Christian ethos of our school. This is seen explicitly in our daily collective worship and reflection. Collective Worship is at the centre of our school community and helps us at the start of each day. We have strong links with Christian organisations in the local community and their representatives are frequent leaders of our daily worship. Our pupil's spiritual, social and moral development is grounded in Christian teaching where we learn to respect, forgive and care for each other and our world.
As we are a church school RE forms part of our weekly curriculum and the statement of entitlement for this can be seen on our website and is alongside our yearly overview for each year group. We follow the Kent Syllabus for RE and the principle aim is:
“To engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own”.
thank you for our school,

caring for and helping each other,
in Jesus' name.
