Student Care





In each year group there are 5 tutor groups. Every year group is supported by a Student Care Team which comprises the Head of Year and an Assistant Head of Year.

It is our aim to ensure that every child at Lammas School & Sixth Form has a ‘go-to’ adult, someone they trust and in whom they can confide. This is the intended role of the form tutor and they should always be the first point of contact for parents and carers.

The Student Care Team will support the well-being and progress of every child in their care and they will work with parents and carers in doing so.

Tutor time is a vital part of the learning day as it provides a rich programme of super-curricular study. Across the week, students participate in the sessions which we refer to as our Pastoral Curriculum that includes:

  • Student-led assemblies
  • Student use of the Lammas App
  • Personal reading time and regular use of the library
  • Leadership; Organisation; Resilience; Initiative; Communication (LORIC) guidance.
  • Careers guidance

Additional Student Care Support Services

At Lammas we understand that the needs of students sometimes require more specialist interventions and therefore, in addition to our tutors, Heads of Year and Assistant Heads of Year, we also offer a breadth of additional student care support services.

Counselling & Mental Health Support

We have the onsite support of trained counsellors four days per week (Place2Be counsellors- 3 days and CAMHs PCT- 1 day).

Place2Be is a children’s and young people’s mental health charity with almost 30 years’ experience working with pupils, families and staff in UK schools.

Place2Be provides mental health support in our school to students through one-to-one and group counselling. They also provide a daily, self-referral drop-in service ‘Place2Talk’ accessible to all students and at times of need.

Inclusion & Extended Student Care

Our Inclusion department offers a range of in-school interventions in response to identified needs and include sessions such as;

  • Boxing Clever Mentoring
  • Sensory Circuits
  • Zones of Regulation Support Work
  • Attendance Groups
  • Friendship Support Groups
  • Art Therapy
  • Anxiety Support

The extended Student Support Team is made up of specialist Teaching Assistants, Learning Mentors, Student Mentors and an Educational Welfare Officer and is headed up by our Student Support Team Leader and SENCo.  We also call on the expertise of outside agencies whenever we feel it would be beneficial for our young people.
