Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a lovely holiday and have been enjoying a great start to the new year.

This term we welcome Miss Morris to Years: 4, 5 & 6. Sadly, the commute from Chester with such a young family proved to be just too difficult for Mr Killa at this moment in time. We thank him for his wonderful contribution to our school and wish him and his family continued happiness. He has promised to keep in touch so we are sure we will see him again soon.

On Monday night, Year 6 appeared on our screen as part of ITV’s #GetBritainTalking Mental Health campaign. We are delighted they were chosen, also making the 20 second advert! ITV clearly recognise superstars.

Here you can watch the advert in full:

It really is such an important message.

Diary dates are now also available on line and the school online calendar will be updated on Friday.

Please remember this website is updated every Friday; including class blogs.

Coming soon, there will also be a refresh of our school website -  which will hopefully aid navigation a little better on mobile phones!

Here’s to 2020 and continuing to work together in successful partnership to make our school the best it can be for all of our pupils!

Help Formby Maritime Cadets!

Date: 7th Jan 2020 @ 1:05pm

 

Formby Maritime Cadets is a disciplined youth organisation based around a nautical theme and we need your help. We are not asking for money, but just a few minutes of your time whilst you read this.

We are holding an emergency meeting on Friday 10th January as the unit is facing imminent closure. Our cadet numbers have stayed relatively stable since opening in 2017 but our staff volunteer numbers have dropped. We have 5 members of staff on the books, but two of them work away for months at a time due to their jobs (Royal and Merchant Navy) and one has recently had a baby therefore must focus her time on him. That leaves myself and one more member of staff but he is unfortunately battling a serious health condition meaning he is not necessarily reliable. I cannot effectively and safely operate the unit like this which is why I will close the doors unless I find some more volunteers.

 Our age range for cadets is 8-18 and we allow anyone from any background to join meaning we do also have cadets with learning disabilities such as autism. Our main focus is a nautical one but we do teach anything and everything from first aid to cooking, camping to kayaking and community engagement to meteorology. We like to provide the cadets with skills and knowledge which they can use as they grow from children to young adults.

We currently parade on Friday evenings 18:30 – 21:00. I would be putting on training on a Tuesday evening for any new staff who wish to attend so they are not just thrown in the deep end. Our cadet unit is in Redgate, Formby. We are a uniformed organisation and would encourage new staff to wear the uniform as not only does it help the young people recognise rank structure but it benefits everyone when we are at public events.

I have put my heart into opening and sustaining the unit and it would be devastating for it to close now. The young people who attend are truly amazing, you will never leave the building without a smile. Some of the young people started too scared to even answer basic questions in front of small groups and now we can’t get them to stop talking. They have made such amazing progress. I know it sounds cliché but we really are like a family. The cadets will look after and support each other through tough times they might be having and as staff we are always there for them no matter what.

I hope you can help me in keeping this unit floating, as currently the ship is sinking, quickly. Please could you pass this message onto anyone you think would be able to help. I would like as many people as possible to attend the meeting on Friday 10th January as that night will determine whether our doors remain open or if I close them once and for all on conclusion of the meeting.

Thank you for your time.

Christmas Blog

Date: 18th Dec 2019 @ 11:52am

As another term ends and we reflect upon the year gone by, we have so much to be proud of here at Trinity St. Peter’s.

This school year we have already shared many special moments already; from the Big Coffee Morning; an array of sporting events; school trips and visits; Church Services; Nativities to our fun-filled Celebration of Kindness Week where a huge amount of money was raised for Children in Need. We are most appreciative of parents generosity and support of these events.

We continue to be so proud of all of our wonderful pupils throughout the school and look forward to welcoming our new families and pupils who will join our Nursery in the New Year.

Once again we are so thankful for the very thoughtful gifts that have been received today. Although they are never expected, they are very much appreciated.

On behalf of all staff and governors we wish you all a very happy and holy Christmas and look forward to seeing you in January.

Celebration Service

Date: 30th Nov 2019 @ 9:58am


On Friday morning we held a celebratory service at Holy Trinity Church. We were delighted that the Bishop of Liverpool, Fr. Richard (Director of Education), Senior Advisors from Liverpool Education Department and Margaret Blake’s family were able to join us. The service was to celebrate our Church and School Partnership Awards and Gold Global Neighbours and also to acknowledge our appreciation of all who work collaboratively together to make our school the best that it can be. 

As always, our pupils were fantastic. They read, sang and danced with confidence and joy. 

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported this event. Your kind words are very much appreciated. 

 

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

Thank you to all parents and staff who generously gave their time to help and to all families who attended and spent lots of money! 

Thinking School Training

Date: 30th Nov 2019 @ 9:45am

On Wednesday morning we welcomed 24 educators to our school - Headteachers, Advisors, Senior Leaders and teachers - all eager to find out how we achieved Thinking School accreditation and what makes Trinity St Peter’s so special. 

Following a presentation explaining our journey they were all treated to a tour of our school led by six Year 6 pupils. 

The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. We were also delighted to hear how many schools use our website and twitter feeds as a source of inspiration. 

Trinity St Peter’s really is a special place to be!

Christmas ‘Sheep Trail’ Project

Date: 29th Nov 2019 @ 2:18pm

Earlier this week, the children from Reception to Year 6 were visited by members of Formby Methodist Church who treated us to a lighthearted, interactive version of the Christmas Story.

We were then told about the ‘Christmas Sheep Trail’ where twelve woolly sheep will be hidden in shops and community venues around Formby centre from the 1st December to 13th December. Families will then be able to hunt for the sheep, collecting their names on the ‘Christmas Sheep Trail’ sheet attached below.

Completed and returned trail sheets will then be entered into a prize draw. There will be a main prize for the overall winner, however every child that takes part and hands in a completed trail sheet will also receive a prize. Formby Library will have a post box where completed trail sheets can be posted. Alternatively, the trail sheets can be returned during the Christingle and cake Service at Formby Methodist Church on Saturday 14th December at 4.30pm.

We hope you enjoy following the trail and that you manage to locate the twelve missing sheep. Keep an eye out for ‘Snuggles’, which is the sheep that our school adopted for the week who was named by our Reception children.

Good luck!

Road Safety Week

Date: 22nd Nov 2019 @ 3:31pm

 

This week we have celebrated Road Safety Week and wore stripes on Wednesday 20th November 2019 to raise money for the charity Brake and towards funding a banner for the Formby Road Safety Initiative that we are involved in. A fantastic £97.60 was raised!

Brake is a road safety charity that works to prevent road death and injury, make streets and communities safer, and supports the victims of road crashes.

The STAR committee worked hard to plan exciting activities. Some members of the STAR committee visited Foundation Stage to help the children understand the importance of road safety. Key Stage 1 drew giant maps of roads, paths and pavements and different crossings on the playground. They also enjoyed pushing toy cars at different speeds to remind them how fast cars can go and the importance of being careful when crossing roads. In Key Stage 2, the children took part in discussions within their class to raise awareness of Road Safety and mixed and produced Road Safety Raps, songs and news reports.

Well done to everyone involved and remember to stay safe when crossing the road!
