This week is National Anti-Bully week and we will be reinforcing Langtree’s Core Values of: Respect, Courtesy and Tolerance by rewarding students who display these qualities in and around school.
We will also be holding a whole-school PSHE morning with the focus on Convivencia – a Spanish term which translates to living in harmony within a community. Students will be discussing this and what it means to them, their teachers and fellow students.
We will also be holding an assembly to further educate students on what bullying is and how they can help by ‘making a noise’!

The Library Action Group and Woodcote Library arranged a spectacularly spooky start to Halloween with their annual Spooktacular.  Students created pumpkin faces, assembled skeletons and even managed to scare the staff with the creepy container challenge!  78 terrifying tales were issued by the library during the lunch break which is a fantastic number of books.  Happy Reading
