Thank you for the amazing support you have given to Trinity over the past couple of weeks.
Parents/Carers will have received a letter (dated 19 March 2020) outlining our plans to continue to deliver the very best education possible during these unsettling times. We are responding positively to the Secretary of State’s request to us to keep our schools open for children of key workers and for vulnerable children from Monday 23rd March 2020.
Our overriding responsibility is to keep our community safe, while maintaining appropriate care, support and education to our students in the best way we can. This is a time that will require a great deal of mutual collaboration as we endeavour to support one another as practically and safely as we can. We are very grateful to all our staff and all our families.
So what next?
This week we have had a skeleton crew at Trinity to ensure that should any of our students turn up they would be safeguarded. As from next week (week beginning 30 March), as we reach the beak of the virus outbreak, all staff have been asked to stay at home and support the online virtual learning site. Therefore if any of our parents or carers are critical workers, whose children would not be safe at home, need our support, please send an email to Mrs Baines on email@example.com entitled CRITICAL WORKER REQUEST, so that Trinity can ensure that there are people who are still well and able to attend Trinity. We would appreciate 24 hours notice of this need so that we have time to allocate the role to a small team of staff.
For the last week of term Trinity will continue working from the Virtual classroom. Details have already been sent out of our remote education/virtual school education provision which includes therapy, safeguarding, pastoral and a wellbeing package. We are all new to this virtual learning platform so initially it will be something of a challenge for us all, however it would be wonderful if you could join your child on the welcome at 8.30am everyday where they can connect with their form tutor and friends and you can make that initial contact.
However, a note of caution is that you must understand that a reduction of available staffing levels means that for reasons of safety this ‘at-school-provision’ may have to be withdrawn, either wholly or in part, at short notice. Together we shall all do everything we can to make the most of the situation. The whole Trinity team is committed to helping every student positively navigate their way through this period.
Trinity hope you have a safe and healthy weekend, and don’t forget we are just on the end of a phone or an email if you need us. So to remind you, the manned mobile numbers are
