Our experienced team at Student Services are here to deal with all types of students’ issues from medical issues to bullying. Mrs Foster, our full time social worker, is also available to provide more specialised support to students should they require it as part of our Early Help provision at the Academy.
Hull Trinity House Academy treats all accusations of bullying as serious matters of concern. Teaching and support staff are aware of the need for vigilance and will follow up any incident that could involve bullying. Our student anti bullying ambassadors have a key role in preventing and dealing effectively with bullying. Pupils know that they should tell a member of staff or go to Students Services if they are being bullied or see any form of bullying. Parents should contact Student Services if they suspect that their child is being bullied. We describe ourselves as a telling school. For more information you can download our Anti-Bullying Policy on our Statutory Information page.
Hull Trinity House Academy has a team of qualified First Aiders who can attend to students if they require first aid attention. We do allow self-administration of medicines, on condition that the medicines are kept in original packaging with Student Services and a parental letter of consent is provided with the medication details including dosage, times and any advice on storage. Students are discouraged from carrying non-emergency medication. Mrs Hodgson also arranges the immunisation programmes where necessary. If a child injures his head or needs to be sent to a doctor or hospital during school hours every effort is made to inform parents as soon as possible. It is therefore crucial that our records are kept up-to-date and that we are informed of any change of address or emergency contact details.
We go to great lengths to ensure that the Academy site is safe and secure for all. At break and lunchtimes, staffs patrol the site and provide key supervision in the main student areas. We also have CCTV cameras in key areas of the school. All site visitors, including parents/carers, are required to report to reception on arrival and to sign out on departure.
Students are responsible for their own belongings, and therefore, all personal items must be clearly named.
