East Leake is an inclusive academy where everyone is made to feel welcome. Our vision sets out to ensure that all students enjoy high quality learning experiences through which they are able to achieve their full potential.

The academy supports students in four main areas:

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • behaviour, emotional and social development
  • sensory and/or physical

We work collaboratively with outside agencies ensuring specialist advice and provision supports effective teaching and learning. Our inclusive ethos aims to encourage all students to be actively involved in their own learning. This involves valuing all students and staff equally, reducing barriers to learning and providing appropriate support so that all students feel able to participate.

The SEN Co-ordinator for East Leake is Miss Harriet Wood – hwood@eastleake-ac.org.uk
