Description

Our strong Catholic ethos leads our SEN provision and enables us to ensure all our children acheive their ambitions. We provide SEN learners with support plans to compliment the personalised quality first teaching they already receive. This coincides with early identification for specific interventions to ensure maximum progress. Furthermore, we have high expectations of all our pupils to ensure they leave Trinity Catholic College equipped for the bright future which awaits them.
