Culture of Care

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of care, safety and wellbeing for all children, in Long Close School.

This culture of care is uncompromising. An integral part of our school, it guides the decisions and actions that we take in the day-to-day management of our schools. It includes the security of our educational environments, the pastoral care and emotional wellbeing of our students. This culture is backed up by our governance structure, reporting to Cognita’s Board.
