Parental Bulletin 7.10.22
PARENTAL BULLETIN – 7 OCTOBER 2022
MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
Dear Parents and Carers
As another exciting week at Trinity draws to a close, I would like to thank parents/carers for their support and partnership. In terms of our home-school partnership, the most important part of your role is to support us in ensuring that your son/daughter attends every day and is equipped to learn. This is crucial so we can provide them with the best possible education. We thank you in advance for your support with this.
This week there have been many wonderful experiences in school; we have celebrated Black History month, played sport against other local schools and as I write this bulletin, we are about to vote for our 2022/23 Head and Deputy Head Students who will lead our Student Council. I will inform you of the results in due course.
Year 11 parents/carers, please make a note in your diaries that TUESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER is an extremely important evening as we will combine the YEAR 11 PARENTS’ INFORMATION EVENING with our SIXTH FORM OPEN EVENING. This important evening will allow Year 11 parents and students to understand exactly what they will need to do in order to perform well in their examinations next summer as well as showcasing our wonderful sixth form offer including brand new courses requested by our students!!
Finally, it won’t have escaped your notice that it is our Open Week next week and the school will be open to visitors in the mornings and on Thursday 13th October from 6.00pm for our Open Evening. To ensure that our staff are able to adequately prepare for an evening where we expect our school to be full of prospective parents and carers, we will be dismissing students on Thursday 13th October at 2pm. Please could you make necessary arrangements to ensure your son/daughter is collected or allowed to make their way home slightly early on this day. We really appreciate your support on this one occasion.
Thank you for all you do in support of our school.
TEACHER TRAINING DAY
Friday 14th October – school closed to students.
May we ask that parents and carers stop parking in front of the gates. Can parents and carers please drive up to the gates and ring the intercom for entry. It is essential we have constant access in case of emergency services needing immediate access.
Please find attached, designed for children & young people aimed at encouraging a culture of kindness in the classroom.

All of the details, including how to submit your poem, are on the attached slides. There’s even an example poem to give you some inspiration.

This week several students have presented at our First Aid base with symptoms potentially caused by not eating before or during school. It would be useful if parents/carers either topped up student catering accounts or provided them with adequate food/drink for the day. If there are any issues caused by the cost of living, then please give us a call and we will be delighted to discreetly support you. There is a free breakfast club that runs each day in the Dining Hall from 8.10am for those students in need of breakfast. Please feel free to come and join us.
EXTRA-CURRICULAR & HOUSE EVENTS
Please find out latest version for next week attached.
In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘RECALL’ – If you ‘recall’ something, you remember it from your past. It describes how your brain brings information back!
It can also be used to describe bringing an item or person back. It is usually used as a verb.
Here are some ways you could use the word:
“I can just about recall being taken to the hospital,” said the cyclist involved.
“The criminal was recalled from Spain where they were hiding.”
Where does it come from?
