Welcome to Langtree Community School’s Web Site

Following the government's announcement, on January 4th 2021, the school is currently open for vulnerable children and children of critical workers, only.

 

Staff are providing remote learning, through Google Classroom, and will continue to be in contact with parents and carers, using Class Dojo.

 

As always, please be in touch if you have any concerns.

February 2021/08 March 2021   We were delighted when, on 22 February, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, announced that all schools should fully re-open, and all pupils should return to school,  from Monday 08 March. All staff are genuinely looking forward to seeing everyone again, when we hope that, with the school open, things will feel a little more normal!  Please click on the link below to read our information letter for more details. 

'Langtree is a very welcoming school.  Pupils behave well and greatly enjoy school.  They are polite and courteous around the school and say they feel safe.  Pupils flourish socially because they have excellent relationships with staff.  Pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their education because of the nurture and care provided for them.  Parents are rightfully proud of their school.  One parent emphasised this by saying, “Langtree is an amazing school that makes everyone feel welcome.  My child has thrived since being there.” ‘

We welcome you to our school web site and hope you find it both interesting and enjoyable.


We are very proud of our happy and nurturing school where each child is valued and supported as an individual. Together with our governors, (who you can find out more about by clicking our 'Getting Involved' link above) we work closely with parents, families and carers to ensure every child makes the best possible progress and at the same time, develops valuable life skills.  We are also determined to protect and safeguard all our children - our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting their welfare -  and invite you to read our Safeguarding Policy, available by clicking 'About Us' or following some of our useful safeguarding links available by clicking 'Links'. 

The curriculum here provides wide opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, to capture the interest of every child, giving them equal access to everything we have to offer.

The children tell us that the best things about our school are our swimming pool, our school meals, the nice teachers, the monkey bars and the fact that there is lots of room to play! We would love to have the opportunity to show you these things, and more…..........
