Our Pupil Development Team aims to support students to achieve their potential at school through instigating actions that empower students to feel safe and secure. Ensuring that our ethos, expectations and procedures facilitate outstanding behaviour and safety is always a key goal for the team.
The team will be proactive in preventing and dealing with incidents of bullying, discrimination and dangerous behaviour, by developing a climate where all students feel secure, valued and cared for. Restorative approaches will be used to resolve issues, as appropriate. To promote mental and emotional health, the team will ensure that students have access to an appropriate range of support if they feel troubled, either within school or through a combination of school and external agencies.
Emotional wellbeing contributes greatly to academic success. The team will ensure that students’ potential is recognised and barriers to students achieving their potential are identified and addressed.
Each student is part of a Form Group, led by their Tutor. Tutors play a vital role in the lives of students and are often the first point of contact for a variety of issues. At Long Stratton High School we believe that strong and proactive tutorship can have a positive impact on the lives of our students. The tutor knows their students very well. They spend part of every day with them, ensuring they are ready to learn; happy and fulfilled. They are often the first person a child will go to if they have a worry or something exciting to share.
