Leeds East Academy Wins ‘School of The Year’ at the UK Parliament Awards
We are delighted to announce that our academy has been awarded ‘School of The Year’ at the UK Parliament Awards.
The UK Parliament Awards celebrate the work of people across the UK who campaign and connect with communities to actively tackle issues they care about.
Our academy is the first school in Yorkshire to receive this prestigious recognition, where over 200 nominations were submitted. Our students and staff were praised by the judges for making significant impacts on the school and the local community, particularly in trying to reduce single-use plastics and improve the sustainability of our community.
This award recognises the dedication of our students and staff to community transformation, which includes many hours of campaigning and volunteering.
This week is UK Parliament Week and students at LEA are learning about democracy and the importance of student voice. Pupils have voted on the issues that matter the most to them so we can make a difference within the community #UKPW @YourUKParl #SoaringToSuccess pic.twitter.com/5Ky6WPqRn9— Leeds East Academy (@LeedsEastWay) November 6, 2020
