Welcome to Parents

Welcome to Parents from the newly appointed Interim Academy Principal, Mrs Sebrina Dawes.

I am delighted to have been appointed Interim Principal of Holy Trinity Lamorbey Church of England Primary School. I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been selected to continue to build upon the foundations already laid, as well as leading the school forward on to its next stage of development.

HTL is a welcoming Christian community, where children are able to flourish and achieve their full potential within a kind, caring and supportive environment.  We will recognise, promote and value equality and diversity and we will encourage an environment conducive to learning that is safe, happy, caring spiritual, and respectful.  We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum, focusing on academic achievement, mental and physical wellbeing.

I am looking forward to working closely with the experienced and dedicated team who will continue to nurture and encourage our children to ensure they secure the best possible outcomes. Staff will utilise their skills to assist all children in our care, to recognise their true potential and talents. As a community, we will endeavour to celebrate the successes of our children in all areas of school life. We will do this by showing them that we believe in them, respect them, and are proud of them whilst continuing to encourage a growth mind-set.

We have developed an ambitious, all- rounded curriculum and will continue to build upon the academic results.  We will work tirelessly to ensure that every child makes as much progress as they can and that as a school we are working towards exceeding the national attainment levels in all areas. We are acutely aware of the value of learning beyond the classroom and I am committed to building on the children’s cultural capital.

We will encourage children at HTL to be individuals, whilst being an integral part of their class.  We will enjoy watching individual personalities blossom as they develop self-confidence, self-esteem and the ability to become part of a wider team. Moreover, our children will be proud to be part of HTL, and we recognise that as individuals they have many different talents and abilities to share and celebrate within our wider community. We fully intend to provide our children with many varied and exciting opportunities to learn in different ways and to achieve high levels of self-esteem through having lots of success.

As a parent myself, I know that bringing up children, especially in today’s world is not an easy task. Together with my team, we will aim to understand and support you in every way that we can, to navigate that sometimes tricky path of being the parent of a primary school aged child.  As key educators in your children’s lives, I feel that it is important that you are aware, that your voice is valued and that as a school, we are approachable and will allocate time to listen to your concerns, or thoughts about the school. We will be facilitating termly coffee mornings (dates to follow), in which Parents and Carers can speak to myself and the senior leadership team, to express opinions on what the school is doing well, and or, any areas that may need developing. Rest assured, as Principal, I will strive to create the best education for your child or children as members of our school family.

I hope that you enjoy visiting the website to get a flavour of Holy Trinity Church of England Lamorbey Primary School, and we thank you in advance for the support I know you will extend to all members of our school community. I am very much looking forward to working with the whole school community and I truly believe that through education, we will continue to transform lives and continue to build extraordinary futures for all of our pupils.
