At Trinity we are passionate about enabling all children to achieve their best and to be able to make progress, learn and achieve and above all develop a love of learning. Sometimes this can be harder for some children and when barriers appear that make it difficult for your child to learn it may be necessary for you to speak to our school SENCO (Miss V Horrocks), in liaison with your child’s class teacher.
If you have any queries about how we support all children, in particular those with a SEND then look further down this page. There are a range of different links and sections of information that should be able to help you. We have an open door policy as much as is possible, so if you feel you need to talk to our school SENCO, please contact your child’s class teacher or call the office to arrange an appointment or email the firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

IAS (Information and Advice Service)
The SENDIAS team which offered parental support throughout the SEND process have been renamed as IAS (The Information and Advice Service). These are the people who can help you if you or a member of your family has a Special Educational Need or Disability. They can help you to understand the jargon used, work out the forms you have to fill in, or navigate the meetings you have to attend.
It’s often helpful to have a third person to help you remember what you wanted to ask, or to give you confidence to ask the things you don’t understand.

The Family Information Directory Network is a really useful source of information, ideas and encouragement for families of children with Special Educational Needs. Their latest newsletter is now out. You can find it on:
