Leigh Academy Rainham is highly committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our student and staff community, and eliminating any unlawful discrimination. 

LEIGH learners and staff will be open-minded, respectful and tolerant of individuals from all sections of our society and in turn every individual will therefore feel like a valued community member who strives to achieve excellence. As a mainstream provision, we endeavour to design our curriculum to meet the needs of our learners with high quality, personalised support from the SEND and pastoral teams. The academy makes reasonable adjustments as part of our commitment to ensuring that targeted support, interventions and approaches to learning are implemented to accelerate progress of all students.

Diversity is valued as a rich resource, which supports the learning of all. The academy recognises every student’s right to a broad, balanced, and challenging curriculum, which is reflective of our local community and exposes them to vibrant cultures from around the world.
