Headteacher's Welcome  

I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the new Headteacher of Lea Valley Academy, and I’m very keen to get to know parents, as well as pupils and staff, from my experience of being a teacher in north London schools for over 25 years, including the last 13 years at Edmonton County, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together.

Lea Valley Academy has recently been through a period of change and I aim to bring a period of stability to the school. I am looking forward to finding out more about the school so that the improvements we make in this new chapter are supported by the whole school community.

"By working together, we can ensure all students enjoy their time at school, make excellent progress and leave us with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful and fulfilling lives."


Parents make an important contribution to children’s achievements at school, and I want to develop the relationship between the school and parents for everyone’s benefit and look forward to meeting you at school events throughout the year.


One of the first things I want to do is reinforce and raise our expectations of our students. It is important to be ambitious. I know our students will always respond positively to a challenge. So, next term we will introduce some changes that we believe will make a significant impact on our school culture.


Your support with these changes will be greatly appreciated.



Mr S. J. Kinson

Start and Finish times after half term

Having listened to parent feedback from year 8 and 10 and their concerns about timings of the staggered finishes we have reviewed these. The extended staggered timings were put in place to prevent overcrowding on the buses. However, significantly reduced use of the buses by the public and students means we can reduce the stagger after half term. The new start and finish times will now be:

* Students have compulsory timetabled lesson 6. These start from Monday 2nd November on a selected day (see individual timetables).
