 Attendance is the keystone to securing outstanding outcomes for each and every student at Leeds East Academy. Students who demonstrate resilience in attendance benefit from better results and are also rewarded with unique opportunities. 

At Leeds East Academy we believe the home-Academy partnership is essential and will help our learners to achieve and succeed.
Research going back many years has consistently told us, not surprisingly, that parents are the most important people in their children’s lives, and that support for their children’s learning and development is crucial. Let’s work together and ensure our young people achieve and succeed.
