In April, LEO Academy Trust were honoured to have been presented two Learning Excellence Awards.

Winner, HR & Talent

This award was for building and extending community links during a time of need, through designing and delivering the KickStart programme across the Trust. This journey was recognised as one that delivered on the very heart of the KickStart initiative - tailored support, training and experience for young people at risk of long-term unemployment. 


Award of Merit, Outstanding In-House Team

Trying to be at the heart of the local community in a pandemic presented many challenges. During periods of full and part time closures it became apparent that childcare issues were very stressful for families, with serious financial implications at what was already a trying time. Part of LEO Academy Trust's response was through a community summer school initiative. The leadership team recognised the importance of supporting parents by offering a safe and caring environment for their children to be in whilst parents went to work.
