A number of secondary phase pupils on leaving school this after tore up their school planners and tossed this litter near the school and in the streets around school. This is not acceptable behavior at any time and Holy Trinity is proud of its environment and its relationship with the community.

A considerable amount of the litter from the torn up planners has been collected (including the covers with the pupils names and photographs) and this will be followed up in due course once they have all been identified.

A number of residents have complained to the school and alerted the council to the litter.  Below is an extract from the Council website in regard to litter and their ability to fine.

Fines

Our enforcement officers can issue fixed penalty notice fines of £75 to people who deliberately drop litter.  If you’re fined and don’t pay you may be prosecuted through court, and this can lead to a fine of up to £2500.

Children and young people who drop litter can take part in a supervised litter pick if they’re caught littering, but we can fine anyone over the age of 11 and refer them to youth court if the fine isn’t paid.

Please ask to see your child’s planner to ensure that they were not part of this thoughtless behavior.
