The Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School

Care & Guidance

Pastoral Structure

Our pastoral care system is organised around a Year-based structure. Each Year Group is headed by a Director of Learning who oversees progress, helps guide students along appropriate learning pathways and promotes well-being.

Currently these are: -

Year 7 – Mrs S Whelan

Year 8 – Ms Jo Ashforth  

Year 9 – Mr P Hunt

Year 10 – Mr A Webster

Year 11 – Mrs K Leyshon

Years 12/13 – Mrs D Clubb

Should we decide that more intensive support, usually with some external input, is appropriate, your child may be supported by one of our Directors of Intervention:

Welfare – Mrs S Clarke

Behaviour – Mr B Deysel

Students are placed in their Year Group and one of four 'Cathedral City' Houses; with the Houses still featuring in aspects of school life, such as competition and charity. The Houses each have a colour which can be seen on the stripes of students’ ties:

Canterbury - Blue  

Durham - Red 

Winchester - Yellow  

York - Green 

Whom do I contact if I have concerns about my child?

Initial concern:

Tutor – well-being or general progress concern

Subject teacher – specific issue about progress in one subject

Further concern:

Director of Learning – well-being or general progress

Head of Department – persistent concern in one subject

If in doubt, our Reception staff will happily advise you of the most appropriate person to contact.

 Further support

In addition to the Year teams, when appropriate, we may also refer to the School Nurse for a variety of health or developmental issues. We have a limited School Counsellor service, for when your child’s education may be affected by deeper personal issues, although this cannot replace services normally accessed through your GP or privately. We also work closely with various external agencies to help pupils make the best progress possible. 

Behaviour

Our Code of Conduct is based on the Four R’s

RESPONSIBILTY for all aspects of your school life and conduct  

RESPECT for others’ needs, learning, values, feelings  

REPAIR of any harm done through our actions

REINTEGRATION into the school community following resolution of any problems

 Uniform 

We ask parents/carers to support us in maintaining high standards in all matters relating to school uniform. Should you have any difficulty (financial or other) in obtaining uniform, please contact your child’s Director of Learning in confidence. (For further information go to 'School Information' > 'Uniform' on this website.)

Attendance

If your child is absent from school due to illness, please leave a message on our dedicated absence line of 01293 652971 or e-mail absence@holytrinitycrawley.org.uk

We do call back a sample of those who leave messages to ensure they are genuine and we ask you to confirm the reason for absence with a note on the day of your child’s return to school.

Leave of absence The School does not currently authorise any holidays in term time. 

(For further information go to 'School Information' > 'Leave Of Absence') 

 Safeguarding Children

Holy Trinity School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we cooperate with other agencies and initiatives at local and national level. Any successful job applicant will be required to undertake a Disclosure & Barring service check (formerly known as Criminal Records Bureau check) at an enhanced level, in line with all schools across West Sussex.  Visitors are required to sign in at reception and may be asked to produce photographic ID.
