At our at tonight’s PC meeting we welcomed Councillor Cammy Day, Convenor of Education, and discussed future options for investment in Trinity Academy.
We discussed the Council’s consultation on changing the Trinity Academy catchment and moving Victoria Primary School and agreed that the Parent Council submission to the consultation will raise two points:
- We support the proposed change of catchment area for Trinity Academy as it formalises the established arrangement under which Trinity Academy is already
the appropriate non-denominational secondary school for the Western Harbour.
- However, the proposals do not recognise that, because of the rising rolls driving this proposal, Trinity Academy already faces an impending capacity issue and this proposal does not define how these will be resolved. We urge the Council to ensure that the proposals are aligned with, and inform, necessary investment at Trinity Academy in the near future.
We will be writing to the Council with this response before the March 17 deadline.
