As an academy we are committed to safeguarding and meeting the needs of children.  

No child should suffer harm, either at home or at school.  Everyone who works in our academy has a responsibility to make sure that all our young people are safe and have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.


In conjunction with Cheshire Police, Leighton Academy is involved in a new initiative called Operation Encompass.  The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.

For more information, see the letter to parents below or visit the Operation Encompass website.
