Pastoral, Medical & Social Support
At Durham Trinity School & Sports College all staff accept the concept of pastoral care as a shared responsibility. Some pupils have additional medical needs and will require an Individual Health Care Plan. It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to keep school informed of any changes. There are opportunities during the school year at the two parents’ evenings and EHCP annual review meeting to discuss any changes.
Some pupils have additional medical needs and will require an Individual Health Plan.
