As an authentically Catholic school, Trinity offers students a safe and supportive environment in which to learn.
All our students are actively encouraged to display generosity, love and care to fellow students and the broader community.Trinity Catholic Primary makes the welfare of its students a priority and seeks to offer them appropriate support to ensure their wellbeing.
The pastoral care of our school community is part of our everyday life at Trinity. We celebrate with each other and we laugh and cry with each other as the need arises. The work of our Mamre group includes the welfare of our school and parish community. The role of the Religious Education Coordinator also encompasses this important and integral area in the life of our school, including those who are visitors, casual teachers, staff, parents and children.
Positive Behaviour Support for Learning (PBS4L)
This whole school program actively promotes positive behaviour and enables students to develop a clear understanding of required expectations, become responsible for their own behaviour and work together to create a positive, productive and harmonious learning community. The program includes a reward system and has been well-received by our community.
Behaviour Development Policy
The principles of natural justice and procedural fairness underpin all the protocols and practices at Trinity Catholic Primary School as outlined in our Behaviour Development Policy. Included in this policy is an outline of how bullying is addressed through proactive and reactive strategies. In cases where bullying is identified, we seek to work in partnership with parents to educate our students on more appropriate behaviour.
At Trinity, we have a Learning Support Team who work collaboratively to meet the learning needs of all students in our care. The team meets regularly to monitor progress and to consider teacher recommendations about inclusion of children on the program for support or for further referral.
When individual students are identified with specific learning needs, their parents are notified and they continue to be part of an ongoing plan of support. In line with our mission statement, it is our responsibility as an educational community to focus our teaching on meeting the needs of every learner. Therefore, the model of special education support at Trinity is an integration (within class) model, wherever possible.
The responsibility for every child in the learning group remains primarily with the learning group teacher. The Learning Support Teachers offer specialist support, as far as possible, within the learning groups. For certain support programs and assessment tasks, some students will need to be temporarily withdrawn from their learning group.
Trinity Catholic Primary is committed to keeping our students safe at school and we adhere to the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and support the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations. A range of checks and undertakings are required for people who work for or provide services to the school. These checks reduce potential risk and form part of the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) strategy to build child safe communities.
Keeping our students safe and happy at school is a priority for us!
