At Laureate Community Academy, we are determined to create an inclusive learning community where everyone is given the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential. We aim to challenge and support all of our pupils, helping them strive to become lifelong learners and preparing them for life in modern Britain. This is encapsulated in our ‘REACH’ acronym: We want everyone involved at Laureate to Respect each other, Enjoy their time in our school, Aspire to be the best that they can be, learn how to Communicate effectively with those around them and lead a happy and Healthy lifestyle. A crucial element in achieving these aims is to promote positive relationships through a whole school approach. This will be achieved by:
Using agreed and consistent strategies based on a trauma informed approach;
Communicating these strategies effectively to pupils, staff, parents, governors and visitors.
