Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                06/05/2021


I hope you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday Monday and made the most of the long weekend.


Thank you to all of you who sponsored your child to take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenges, your donations will be shared between two charities that support our school - Riverbank and LVA.


Our local MP, Sarah Olney visited school last Friday afternoon which she describes as follows in her weekly newsletter:



‘On Friday I enjoyed a delightful visit to Holy Trinity CE School in Richmond to see the children completing their Captain Tom 100 Challenges. The children did everything from 100 painted hand print ‘high fives’ by the nursery to planting seeds, doing maths problems, and running. I was also interviewed by young reporters from the Kingfisher magazine asking me insightful questions about everything from, ’Have you met the Prime Minister?’ to ‘What made you want to go into politics?’

FUEL Holiday Activities and Food Programme


The Department for Education has provided funding for holiday activities. In Richmond the programme is called F.U.E.L: (Feed Ur Everyday Lives) and will be delivered by Achieving for Children. The F.U.E.L programme will take place over the summer holiday and will offer a range of fun and enjoyable activities and food to children and young people aged 5 to 16 years who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). The aim is that the children who attend the programme will be supported:


  • To eat healthily and understand nutrition

  • To be more active 

  • To be safe and not to be socially isolated

  • To learn more about the different services Achieving for Children have available in the local area


All activities are free for children and young people who receive Free School Meals (FSM).If you need support with applying online Holiday Activities and Food ProgrammeSecondary school summer schools or have other enquiries please email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
