At Langtree, we utilise our assemblies, tutor times, RSE lessons and the curriculum to raise awareness and discuss important issues related to wellbeing and safety. There will be some students who need access to more specialist services:
- ELSA – (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant). If you would like further information, speak to Mrs Temple or your Head of Year.
- NOMAD – (a mentoring service – see your HOY for further information)
- School nurse – the school nurse is also available to support individual students with a range of issues including:
- General Health and Wellbeing
- Smoking cessation
- Sexual health
- Students can refer themselves to this service or be referred by a member of staff. Contact details HERE.
- Year 11 Student Mentor – a Yr 11 will be allocated a tutor group to mentor. Yr 11 mentors are selected for this role as a result of their outstanding attitude to learning, commitment to support Langtree and knowledge of the school. They are given a programme of mentoring activities to complete with students in their first short term.
Please do talk to your tutor, a teacher of your Head of Year if you are experiencing any problems:
- Mrs Belcher – Head of Year 7 & 8
- Ms Godfrey – Head of Year 9
- Mr Sinnamon – Head of Year 10 / 11
- Ms Phipps – Head of Year 10 /11
If you don’t feel like you can approach someone in school, please email a teacher or HOY, or Report a Concern by clicking HERE.
If you do not have access to a computer, write a letter and hand it to a staff member with the words Private and Confidential on the envelope. Make sure you put your name so we can get in touch with you.
