As we are not able to hold a Y10 Information Evening in the usual way in school, please follow the link to view a filmed presentation of the information you would have received: https://trinity.cumbria.sch.uk/y10-information-evening/
Having watched the flow of bubbles in and out of school, we feel that we can alter the start/end of day times to give more time in school. Please see the new times for some year groups highlighted below:
15th September 2020
Children should not attend school if they have at least one of the coronavirus symptoms which are:
- a high temperature (37.8°C or above. If you don’t have a thermometer, feeling hot to the touch on your chest or back is a good indicator of a high temperature)
- a new, continuous cough (this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Now that the first full week of term is complete, I wanted to write to pass on our congratulations to all students for playing their part in helping to keep our school community safe. With many new rules and routines to learn, students have lived up to our motto of Standards, Responsibility, Opportunity, for all. Lessons have been focused and productive, with high standards of learning, students have shown responsibility by listening and following important safety messages and this has created new opportunities for year groups to be closer than ever in their bubbles. We have had very few instances of students who are not following the Covid-19 behaviour rules.

Return to Trinity School: Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why are students sent outside at break?
In order to keep students separate in their bubbles we have split each yard in half, giving a space for four year groups (7-10) As there are 270 students in each year group, outside space, with fresh air and room to mix safely in a bubble, is safest. Students should bring a coat/waterproof to wear outside. Two of the outside spaces have shelters for students to sit underneath. Students in year 11 do not have an outside space at break but have a much larger indoor area than other year groups. At lunchtime, all students have access to a dining area and an outside space, so they can spread out even further. We have contingency plans for wet breaks, but these areas are smaller, so outside is safest, even in light drizzle!

Inappropriate Social Media Activity
We have been alerted to the fact that extremely disturbing and inappropriate material is being circulated between students, across various social media platforms. This is causing distress to many.
Please be aware of the advice we are sharing with students below, in support of your own ongoing vigilance at home.
Instrumental/singing lessons will resume in school next week.
Students studying A-level and GCSE music receive a weekly instrumental lesson, as part of their course, free of charge. For other students there is a charge for these lessons and those taking them will either be invoiced by school or by the instrumental/singing teacher.
Woodwind, Brass, Guitar and Cello lessons are provided by the music service and for these lessons you will be invoiced by school. The charges for these lessons are
Group lesson – £10 per week
Individual lesson – £20 per week
