I recently moved to Bounds Green area and applied for my 4 year old daughter for a reception. As i didnt have time and doesnt know the area, choose an outstanding and closest Trinity Primary Academy. Does anyone has any informations or experience with this school? I am reconsidering now St Martins of Pores...

Isn't that the one that was called Nightingale and had an awful reputation so they changed its name..... on the road towards Wood Green? I may be wrong.

Omg just checked now. I think it was! Never heard about it. Am I allow to apply for the waiting list in a different school even I got this one as my first preference?

It was called Nightingale, then changed its name six years or so ago.

Go and have a look round OP. Speak to the head. Don't make a decision based on some rumour about an 'awful reputation' from years ago.

Yes you are right. I’m going for an open day and see all the teachers and pupils. Also it’s got outstanding ofsted report so should means something. But in the same time I’ll email other School things m thinking about, so they could put me on a waiting list.

Yes I don't mean dismiss it, just useful always to know the background.

St M of P is a sweet little school. I'd go for that one myself.

Hi, my son is in Year 2 at Trinity and my youngest will be starting nursery this September. Yes, it had a rocky time a few years back, but it's been under new leadership and in that time has achieved the well deserved Outstanding from Ofsted. My son(and our family) are super happy there. They encourage a love of learning and are great at keeping the kids challenged whatever their ability. The school community is wonderfully diverse (we just had an International Food Fair last week, the donations were incredible!) and welcoming. Do visit and see for yourself and if you have any specific questions about the school, I'd be happy to answer them. I know how stressful this time can be-when we applied for my eldest, the school was in 'Requires Improvement' but we liked it so much we put it as a choice above other local schools. Good luck and maybe I'll see you at the welcome meeting in a couple of weeks.
