Safeguarding Support

School Support Offer

At Blessed Trinity we pride ourselves in the support and interventions we offer our pupils. We have various in school services we can offer your child, these include:

Form Tutors

Pupils will see their form tutor at the beginning of every day. They will ensure your child is equipped and ready to learn for the day. Form tutors oversee the academic progress and overall wellbeing of pupils in their form group.

Year Leader

Year leaders will oversee the academic progress of all pupils in their year group. Year leaders will also ensure pupils are supported for their emotional and well-being needs where appropriate. Year leaders will also liaise with other staff in school and parents.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Pupils with SEND needs are supported by the SEND team and the SENDCo. The SENDCo will ensure pupils with SEND are able to access the learning in the classroom and make progress.  

Learning Support

Learning support is where all the teaching assistants are based. The area provides a space for SEND pupils to regulate or access interventions. Learning support also provides a quiet space for pupils at break and lunch times.
