Diocesan Inspection

Diocesan Canonical Inspection

Trinity underwent a Diocesan Canonical Inspection in 2014 and was judged to be (1) Outstanding, meaning that Trinity Catholic School is a highly effective Catholic school where pupils’ needs are exceptionally well met.

The inspection of The Trinity Catholic School, A Voluntary Academy, was carried out on behalf of the Bishop of Nottingham under Canon 806 of Canon Law in accordance with the evaluation schedule for diocesan canonical inspections in the Diocese of Nottingham. The inspection reviews and evaluates how effective the school is in providing Catholic education. The process begins with the school’s self-evaluation and the inspection schedule is in line with the criteria set by the National Board of Religious Inspectors and Advisers (NBRIA).

During the inspection, the inspectors observed 7 Religious Education lessons and 5 Acts of Collective Worship.

Meetings were held with the headteacher, the SLT line manager of Religious Education, the head of department for Religious Education, both chaplains, 2 governors and the parish priest. Discussions were also held with pupils and staff.

The inspectors scrutinised a range of documents including: minutes of governors’ meetings; questionnaires; evaluations and action plans and evidence presented to support the school’s SEF (self-evaluation form). Inspectors also examined the work in pupils’ Religious Education books.
