Our aim for students with special educational needs and disabilities is exactly the same as for all of our students: we want them to have high aspirations and to achieve well. At Trinity we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all students and high quality teaching which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. Students may have SEND, Special Educational Needs and /or Disabilities throughout or at any time during the school year and we have good systems in place for identification and assessment of need.

All staff are involved in planning for a student’s Special Educational Needs and /or Disability to enable participation across the curriculum including extra-curricular activities and to allow all students to engage as fully as possible in the life of the school.

Trinity School is a Strategic Resource for Hearing Impaired students. The school is resourced to ensure there is a good acoustic environment for hearing impaired students, which is suitable to meet their needs.

If you would like more information on our provision for students with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities please contact Mr G Brentnall our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator) or Miss H Smith –, and Mrs D Hadley – our Assistant SENCOs.

You will find their email addresses above and on the staff contact list on this website, or you can telephone them via the main school number.
