At Tanglin, we aim for all members of our community to be able to flourish during their time at Tanglin and long after they leave. We also pride ourselves on the exceptional care, guidance and support we give to our students.
On leaving Tanglin, students and their families consistently comment on the tremendous help and encouragement they received from their peers and our dedicated teachers.
Ongoing relationships with teachers, the close personal attention given to students by specialist staff, and a well-structured system of pastoral care, mean that our knowledge of each student's abilities and aptitudes is exceptional. This enables us to provide all students with personalised academic and pastoral support which is a key ingredient in their high levels of achievement.
Our Lifeskills programmes explore different themes that aim to proactively prepare children and young people for challenges that they are likely to face at their age and stage of development. Topics range from positive relationships to healthy eating, to managing schoolwork, to managing a budget; classes are often complemented by year-group and school assemblies and visits from outside speakers.
Drawing on available research from the field of Positive Psychology, the Lifeskills curriculum also aims to equip students with strategies and techniques to help them to be resilient in the face of emotional challenges.
The team that forms the Coordinated Wellbeing Services (nurses, school counsellors, educational psychologist and family support liaison) aim to be proactive as well as reactive and regularly contribute to the Lifeskills programmes for students.
The Tanglin Pastoral Circle
Every student at Tanglin Upper School and Sixth Form College is supported by at least 13 adults in different roles who look after student wellbeing.
Safeguarding and Child Protection
School employees are required to report any concerns about a student directly to a Designated Safeguarding Lead member of staff. Parents, students, visitors or any other person wanting to report a concern about a student may do so with any of the School’s Designated Safeguarding Lead staff or any School employee they feel comfortable with.
