Trinity Road Primary School is a 1.5 form community school in the heart of Chelmsford, within walking distance of the city’s library, theatres, swimming pool and riverside green belt.
At Trinity Road Primary school, our vision is that motivated and skilled adults deliver quality teaching of the curriculum, broader knowledge and experiences in an immersive, dynamic, engaging and practical way which shapes resilient, compassionate young people who love to learn.
What makes us special are our inclusive values built into the curriculum and pastoral care which build resilience, ignite pupils’ confidence and equip pupils with the tools to problem-solve, as a team and independently.
While Trinity Road Primary School was built in Edwardian times, it now benefits from modern double-glazing and LED lighting to keep spaces warm and bright all year round. All our classrooms are equiped with touchscreen smartboards and we have a dedicated ICT suite as well as ipads. In a recent energy survey, our school was rated as one of the most energy-efficient in the county.
Most of our classes are twinned and have a shared area; this enables pupils to engage in small group activities and we also have a library and a community room. Our outdoor learning spaces include a covered outdoor classroom, an enclosed sensory garden and a separate woodlands on Queen’s Road.
Our multi-use games area (MUGA), outdoor gym, trees, climbing wall and creative play equipment are provided for pupils at Trinity to make the most of being active outside, while our ground floor Lower Hall and first floor Upper Hall provide the space for being active indoors. Our school was selected for the Essex Active Travel School Streets programme, which invested in traffic calming bollards and road markings outside the school. We have plenty of storage for bikes and scooters, but families who have to travel by car can obtain a car park pass for the nearest council car park to ‘park & stride’.
Due to the increased need for school places in central Chelmsford, our school has been selected for a local-authority-funded expansion project, which will offer two additional classrooms, an extra group room, extra toilets, a new cantine and a new kitchen. The buildingworks will be ongoing from November 2022 to July 2023, following the completion of which we will be able to welcome 60 children into our EYFS reception cohort each year instead of 45.
We offer a range of extra-curricular activities before school, at lunchtime, and after school. Recent clubs have included gardening club, board games club, dodgeball club and gymnastics. Clubs can vary each term and pupils apply for a place at the beginning of each term, making it easy to try lots of different clubs throughout the year.
