Learning for Life Campus Stories – July

We have come to the end of the school year, and what a year it has been! In spite of  exceptional circumstances our pupils have once again blown us away in the progress they have made through; determination, commitment and hard work. We are so proud of them. We look forward to welcoming our new pupils and their families to the school in September, but before we go please do check out what we have been up to this month.
Proud moment alert! 😀
Ashley has recently received a ‘Certificate of Achievement’ to recognise that he has completed the Skills, Volunteering and Physical sections for the D of E Silver Level. Over the last Bank Holiday weekend he completed the Silver Level Expedition and once his group complete a presentation later this month, he will receive the full Silver Award. He has already started work on the Gold Level.
Well done Ashley 👏

Congratulations to our Head of Quality and Standards Mr Patrick Robinson who has won a Jack Petchey Leader award. 👏👏👏
Patrick Robinson has been at West Lea School for the past 5 years and has become an indispensable part of the team. He has become Mr Reliable and will turn his hand to anything when needed. Where his skills are best used are in his current post where he is responsible for quality assuring our provision and overseeing the process of reviewing the Education Health and Care Plans for our pupils. The latter is not only a statutory duty but is also key to ensuring that all of our cohort are thriving, making progress and getting prepared for adulthood. This Patrick does with aplomb. Mr Robinson embodies our values, he always ‘walks the talk’ and we would be lost without him. 😀
