Safeguarding at East Leake Academy
The safety and well-being of our students is our absolute priority, and is taken very seriously at East Leake Academy. Together with providing exceptional pastoral care, we are proactive in ensuring all students have information and knowledge to keep them safe at the academy, online and methods for communicating if there are problems.
We recognise the importance of positive mental health and actively work with students to create an open dialogue about mental health and well-being. Our student counsellor works closely with the pastoral team to ensure that support is given to students who need it.
If you have any concerns about a student at our academy, or general questions about safeguarding, please do not hesitate to contact us.
