LECA has built a strong, inclusive atmosphere and culture which supports students to attend school feeling safe; allowing them to thrive and focus their learning and character development.
Below are some of the areas we have been developing since we opened as a new school to support a positive and supportive community:
- Our PSHE Curriculum with clear anti bullying lessons
- Anti Bullying Assemblies
- Understanding of mental health and well-being awareness.
- E-safety curriculum, linking this to PSHE and Information Technology with clear links towards cyber bullying.
- Information sharing of anti -bullying information and posters with parents and students.
- Developing our external agency work to support students with mental health, attendance and behavioural concerns.
- Ensuring our behaviour systems include restorative approaches to correct behaviour and educate.
- Ensuring all attendance meetings and Student Support Plans have a direct link to anti bullying within the framework
We have a zero tolerance approach to bullying within our LECA community, and we are all here to help. We are pro-active in preventing bullying with a robust and consistent approach when any bullying is reported to us. We have a specialist pastoral team that are extremely dedicated to student welfare.
Speaking out is essential in working as a community to prevent bullying. We always suggest that your child's first port of call should be their form tutor - but any member of staff that they feel comfortable talking to is perfectly okay.
Our PASS (Pupils Attitudes to Self and School) results are published here. This illustrates how our students feel about attending LECA.
The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong. If you or your child are worried or upset about something which has happened on the internet there is help out there. Here are some useful links:
