Leaways School’s specialist autism spectrum condition provision, The ARC, has been named as a finalist for a prestigious award. Leaways School in London has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
The ARC is a finalist in the 2017 UK Autism Hero Awards’ Outstanding Achievement in Education category and was chosen from hundreds of entries into the awards after having been nominated by the parent of a pupil.
The UK Autism Hero Awards were created by the Anna Kennedy Online Charity as an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the excellence taking place in the world of Autism. They are a unique opportunity to celebrate and showcase accomplishments as well as enhancing Autism awareness and acceptance.
The awards seek to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations who have proved excellence, dedication and commitments to impacting lives that have been making a real difference.
The team at ARC face a nervous wait to find out if they will be named as the winners in their category – the awards ceremony will be take place in London on Saturday 11th November 2017.
Good Luck ARC Team and well done!
