Pupil Support Systems

We believe it is essential to support students in achieving to their potential and as such will put in place support mechanisms to address any barriers to learning, both academic and behavioural. These strategies may be used at any stage of a student’s career at Trinity and in response to misconduct. They are more likely to be used if behaviour is repeated and in an attempt to prevent the development into further serious misconduct. Whilst some interventions appear on the surface to be punitive, it is always our intention to be merciful and offer a route back to a productive time in school. 

The support mechanisms Trinity can offer include: 

  • Achievement Card
  • Conduct Report Card
