Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Trinity
At Trinity we believe that every young person, regardless of any additional need, is loved and valuable to God, and that He has given each one unique gifts and talents. Therefore, we are committed to providing an education that is inclusive for all.
Our vision is that every student will fulfil their God-given potential, ready to serve others and equipped to be confident leaders in society. We treat every student therefore as an individual, supporting and guiding them on their journey with us, developing increasing independence throughout their time with us.
To help us to do this, we gather students’ individual SEND information from previous educational settings and parents; additionally, we will undertake further investigations into potential barriers to learning and other needs, where deemed necessary.
To support with learning and access to everyday school life, all staff are fully aware of the individual needs of our students, and, where possible, will make the school classroom, systems and environments inclusive to all, from the teacher’s delivery in the classroom, regular daily check in from the form tutor to a quiet room at social times. Teachers plan for provision for our SEND students by using our Inclusive Checklist, which ranges from dyslexic-friendly PowerPoints and learning made accessible for all with achievable but challenging objectives; click on the following links for further information: Inclusive Checklist Link; Teaching & Learning.
Some students may need additional support, to be able to access our school provision. In this case, we use all available information to consider a suitable support pathway for each student, tailored to their individual needs.
Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) along with the SEND team, works with our parents and all staff across the school to ensure that there is a team approach to supporting our students with SEND. For example, this could be through the delivery of short-term intervention programmes, indemnification of need and support and advice should these be required. The SENDCo tracks and monitors the progress of students with SEND and advises staff of strategies to support students in their lessons.
