Leiston is one of the founding schools behind Avocet Multi-Academy Trust which was set up in November 2014 with the view that collaboration is the key to success at all levels. Located on the Suffolk Coast we look to provide our students with the best possible start to their education an a mindset which empowers them to become life long learners.

Leiston is a bustling and thriving primary school for students from Nursery to Year 6. It's rich diversity provides children with a range of learning opportunities both within our school and as part of the wider Avocet Multi-Academy Trust. We offer opportunities such as inter-Academy sports tournaments, the 11 before 11 offer which sees our students enjoy a range of life experiences before they leave us, a varied curriculum and work within the wider community.

We welcome the support of our families and if you feel that you can provide support in the classroom or on a wider scale then please speak to your child's class teacher. We welcome visits to our school to look around and see what we have to offer.

Our Leadership Team are always on hand if you have any queries so pleased feel free to contact them: Mrs Stanley-Bell (Executive Principal), Mrs Geater (Head of School), Mrs Chadwick (SENCO).
