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 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.

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 of Kindness Week 2017!

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 1:23pm

 

What a fantastic week we have had, celebrating kindness! We have been very busy around the school, from taking part in sponsored triathlons to presenting our cakes in The Great TSP Bake Off! The children have smiled and laughed all week – a truly wonderful sight!

To round off our celebrations, we wrote messages about bullying and placed them in balloons of our school colours. As a whole school we went onto the playground and released these ballons, symbolising how our school values can remove bullying. We then all went into the hall to sing 'Sing' by Gary Barlow and the Commonwealth Band. It was a very thoughtful and reflective afternoon.

Thank you to the generosity of the children and parents. Through sponsored events, donating money to participate in events and bringing in money on Friday for our ‘Spots and Stars’ mufti day, we have raised a staggering £1210! What an incredible outcome from a fantastic week of celebrations. Thank you to all staff, parents and most importantly the children, who have made this a very special week at Trinity St Peter’s! We cannot wait to donate our total to Children In Need.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Sumdog Champions!

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 1:18pm

Well done to Year 4, who have won the Sefton Sumdog Contest! They have worked incredibly hard throughout the week, answering 1000 questions each and cementing their position at the top of the leaderboard! 

What makes this victory extra special is that the children have worked together as a team and motivated each other to complete their target. Most of these questions have also been answered after school, meaning the children have taken their learning home and used their free time to do more Maths work - amazing!

They truly deserve their first place position and we hope they enjoy their reward of a 6-month free subscription on Sumdog! They can now play even more Maths games, which they are very excited about!

Great work, Year 4!

 

Formby Football Representative Tournament – 10.11.17

Date: 11th Nov 2017 @ 11:32am

On Friday, some footballers from Year 6 represented the school in the Formby Girl’s Football Representative tournament where the eventual winners would go forward to represent Formby in the Merseyside competition. We couldn’t wait to test ourselves against different opposition from across Formby.

Trinity St. Peter’s were drawn in Group A along with St. Jerome’s, Redgate and Woodlands. We knew that this would be a tough group and we were determined to give our all in an attempt to qualify for the semi-final stage!

The girls in our squad were: Aimee, Alice, Anneli, Billie, Issy, Mila, Millie and Olivia.

Our first game was a stern test against St. Jerome’s Primary School. In a frantic game of few chances both teams battled to create goalscoring opportunities. Alice and Anneli put in some very important tackles in midfield and Olivia made some very important defensive clearances too. Unfortunately, it was St. Jerome’s who took the lead with a scrappy goal after managing to get on the other side of our defence. This is how the game finished and the TSP girls knew that they would have to work incredibly hard in the next two games in order to qualify.

Our next game was against Woodlands Primary School to whom we had suffered a defeat at the end of the previous school year. Today was a different story and what a performance this was! From start to finish every single member of the team gave their absolute all. Aimee made some incredible saves to stop Woodlands taking the lead and Billie and Olivia defended expertly by always staying goalside and kicking the ball away from danger. Issy, Mila and Millie played some brilliant football higher up the field and TSP were unfortunate that none of these chances led to a goal. A stand out moment in this game came following a brilliant through ball pass from Millie. Mila was on the end of this pass and ran through on goal before being bundled over by one of the Woodlands defenders before she could release her shot at goal. A few cries of “Penalty!” were overlooked by the referee and the final score remained goalless. TSP 0–0 Woodlands.        

Our final game was against Redgate and the situation was simple: we had to win! The team were set up in in an attacking formation as we also knew that, depending on the result of the final game between St. Jerome’s and Woodlands, goal difference could also be the deciding factor for which team was to qualify. The hunger and desire from the TSP girls was plain to see as we made a ferocious start to the game. Mila had an early chance as she went on a mazy run getting past three Redgate players before firing her shot wide. So close! A shout of “Next time, Mila!” was met with an assured nod from Mila who turned her focus back to the task at hand. Anneli was such a midfield engine and she simply would not let a Redgate player get past her without chasing them down to win the ball back. Alice also showed her skills in midfield as she made several tackles and then looked to play the ball forward to continue the attack. Billie and Olivia were excellent once again as any chance that the Redgate players might have had to score, they were there to clear the ball to safety with confidence. Our goal came about half way into the game as Mila got another chance following some hard work from Issy on the right-hand side of the pitch. Mila picked up the ball in the penalty area and blasted it home. 1-0 TSP! TSP had several chances before the second goal came with Issy twice going close and Millie always looking to create goalscoring chances. However, it was Anneli who scored the all-important second goal with a wicked shot that flew past the goalkeeper. 2-0 TSP! The goalscoring didn’t stop there and the TSP girls were desperate for another. TSP flowed forward and after the ball pinballed around the Redgate penalty area it was Millie who was there to hit the ball into the net. 3-0 TSP!

Following this all-important win, we had a tense wait as St. Jerome’s played Woodlands. We needed St. Jerome’s to win so that we would qualify on goal difference (as we had scored more goals than Woodlands but would have the same number of points). Unfortunately, it was not to be, as the game finished 0-0.

Regardless of the final outcome, the TSP girls should be incredibly proud. Their confidence grew with every passing minute of each game and it will certainly be onwards and upwards from here.

A special thank you to Mr McGeoch who has worked so hard with the girls in our Monday football training and the progress is clear to see.    

Speed Stacking Competition - 8.11.17

Date: 11th Nov 2017 @ 10:54am

Earlier this week, some children from Year 1 to Year 6 attended a Speed Stacking competition hosted by Redgate Primary School. The children were tasked with applying their Speed Stacking skills to a variety of competitions including: the timed table stack; the obstacle stack and the relay stack.

The children had such fun and it is so rewarding to see their development and progress within this sport within just a few weeks. Well done to all the speed stackers who attended this competition and for showing such resilience by battling to improve on your personal best time.

Keep on stacking!

Formby Football Representative Tournament - 3.11.17

Date: 4th Nov 2017 @ 1:01pm

On Friday, some footballers from Year 5 and 6 represented the school in the Formby Boy’s Football Representative tournament where the eventual winners would go forward to represent Formby in the Merseyside competition. So, the stakes were high!

The ground was wet from the afternoon rain which made for great footballing conditions for all involved.

Our first fixture was a tough test against St. Luke’s so we knew we would have to be at our best. We started the first game with Theo in goal, Jonathan as centre back, Nick and Hugo as wing backs, Will and Lucas as marauding midfielders and Jake leading the line in attack. The game certainly was a close one and it took a few minutes for the boys to find their organisation as St. Luke’s began to attack more frequently whilst the TSP boys remained stubborn in defence. The best chance of the game was as Jake ran through and was unlucky not to score to the bottom left of the goal as he was one-on-one with the goalkeeper. So close! Hugo did particularly well as his solid defending reduced the chance of a St Luke’s goal. The final score was 0-0 followed by handshakes all round.

Our second game didn’t get any easier as we faced Our Lady of Compassion Primary School who always provide a stern test. In this game, Charlie was brought on in the wing back position and James slotted into midfield. What a performance this was! From the first blow of the whistle, TSP’s work rate never slowed as Nick and Charlie battled to win the ball in defence and then attack down the channels. James never stopped running and held the ball well against bigger opposition whilst always looking to get forward and feed passes through to Jake in attack. Our breakthrough came about half way into the game as a cross from the right-hand side towards the penalty spot ricocheted off an OLOC defender and into the back of their own net. 1-0 TSP! As the game continued, despite Theo showing great assertiveness in goal, OLOC managed to equalise against the run of play. 1-1. This was enough to spur our team on; they knew that they deserved to win this game and were not prepared to let three points slip away. As Lucas picked the ball up in midfield, he made his way into the final third and released a curling strike that found its way into the top corner. 2-1 TSP! This was how the game finished and we knew we had more or less qualified for the semi-finals.

Our final group game was against Redgate who were playing this competition on home soil. In a fairly scrappy game there was a contentious moment as a shot at Theo rebounded off his gloves and trickled towards our goal before he managed to stop it befofe crossing the goal line. Nevertheless, the referee awarded a goal. 0-1 Redgate. That’s football for you; these things sometimes happen! For the remainder of the game, chances were few and far between for both sides with most of the game being contested in midfield. Will worked incredibly hard as a striker and his work rate almost led to an equaliser as he dribbled into the box but could not get a shot away at goal. This was how the game finished and, despite the result, TSP qualified from Group A to play the winners of Group B in the semi-final.

The semi-final was against Freshfield Primary School who had done very well to finish top of their group and who boasted a strong physical presence in their team. As the game started, it took some strong tackles from Jonathan in the opening minutes to dispossess the Freshfield attackers as they moved towards goal. A brave block from Lucas also stopped a certain goal as the pressure mounted. Freshfield eventually scored as a lethal shot at our goal was expertly saved by Theo who was excellent throughout the whole tournament. Unfortunately, the save found its way to another Freshfield attacker who had the simple job of tapping it home. 0-1 Freshfield. The game continued and despite attempting to up our work rate to get back into the game the game finished 0-2 Freshfield and it was the team in green that progressed to the lucrative final.

There were many positives to take from this tournament and also areas we know that we can work on in training too. In this new look TSP team, each player should be proud of their contributions and each wore the shirt with pride. Well done everyone!

Consultation on Changing Family and Children Centres to Family Wellbeing Centres

Date: 28th Sep 2017 @ 11:17am

The following information has been shared from Sefton Council regarding proposed changes. They are consulting with parents within Sefton for their views:

Sefton Council is looking at new ways in how people access information, advice, activities and receive support for children and their families.

Our communities have told us that our teams need to be more joined up as this will make their lives easier. To help to achieve this, we propose to redesign our overall offer at Children’s and Family Centres so that people can access support more easily. The proposal is that this new service will cover ages from pre-birth to 19 year olds so we can offer a whole family approach. We propose to do this by creating main bases that will be known as Family Wellbeing Centres, complemented by a number of smaller bases, within three locality areas – North, Central and South.

It may mean that some people will access our offer in a different place or in a different way. This will enable us to make the most of the limited amount of money that we have available to provide this important support to 0 to 19 year olds and their families.

The Council wants to hear people’s views on this and has launched an 8-week consultation. An online questionnaire is available for people wishing to take part in this consultation. To complete the questionnaire you need to visit sefton.gov.uk and click on the ‘take part in a consultation’ tab.

Copies of the questionnaire will also be made available at all existing children’s centres, family centres, leisure centres and libraries. Up to the end of November staff, families and partners will also be able to engage in face to face engagement sessions to hear more about the proposals and have an opportunity to have their say. 

We would be grateful if you could get involved and share your views before the consultation closes on 17 November 2017

Cabinet should be in a position to consider the consultation feedback in December, 2017.

Thank you for your assistance
