Governance

We believe that education can transform lives

  • LEA will create an environment where students look forward to coming to school
  • LEA will encourage students see learning as enjoyable in its own right and a lifelong process and not just something that ends when leaving full-time education.
  • LEA also recognises that a good education is also a means to a better job to generate income to support a family and provides a means for accessing other opportunities and experiences in life.
  • LEA will strive to provide role models, facilitate friendship and encourage self-discipline to help students to be good citizens in the Academy and in wider society etc. 
  • Diversity provides new perspectives to student’s lives, LEA will introduce students to ways of thinking that they may not have experienced previously.
  • LEA will encourage students to be good citizens that are not only tolerant of others but embrace what others have to offer.

We respect the individual, relishing the contribution that diversity brings

  • The curriculum offered within the Academy will address the diverse educational needs and interests of the students.
  • Where possible, teachers will use examples from a range of contexts and cultures to illustrate the value of diversity.
  • Where necessary to facilitate learning of all students, LEA, however need to be some boundaries on diversity e.g. in terms of uniform, rules, behaviour etc to permit the Academy to function in the interests of all.

We strive to be the best we can be, actively and with pride

  • LEA values academic excellence, but also values other ways that students and staff can display and extend their talents. This may be on the sports field, or in concerts or just being good friends and students, considerate for the needs of others. 

We look after our environment to keep it safe, healthy and inclusive

  • The environment is both physical and social, within the academy, Seacroft, Leeds and on a global scale. 
  • LEA will provide a safe environment within the school for students to learn.
  • LEA will work with others to provide a safe environment for students on the way to school and on the way home.
  • The school canteen will provide a range of healthy options.
  • Students will be encouraged to make healthy choices in the food they eat at school, including the food that they bring with them to school.
  • As part of the curriculum, students will be provided with information about their health.
