Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

The wellbeing of our students continues to be a priority for Long Close School and this is made all the more possible thanks to our small class sizes. We are delighted that Independent School Inspectorate recognises our pastoral care as ‘Outstanding’.

Senior School students are taught by a variety of specialist teachers but they are also placed under the care of a dedicated Form Tutor who takes time to get to know their students and observe personal development; offering support, encouragement and advice along the way.

In the Autumn term of 2020, we are strengthening our pastoral support framework with the introduction of AS Tracking in our Senior School. Pupils in Year 10 and 11 will be the first year groups to undertake the assessments, but we hope to implement the system across all year groups.

Mr N Lee is the Lead Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for Long Close School. He works with a team who share different areas of lead responsibility in safeguarding roles throughout the school. If you have any issues of concern, please contact Mr Lee for support and direction by emailing

Further details of our Safeguarding Policy including Child Protection can be found on our school website.
