Well Schools S2, E1 - Rebecca Leek, South Essex Alliance Multi-Academy Trust

On this week’s episode, we learn why Well Schools exists, how it came to life and what it aims to achieve in the future, with co-founder and host of the show, Kay Batkin, Network Director at the Youth Sport Trust. Our special guest this week is Rebecca Leek, CEO of the South Essex Alliance Multi Academy Trust (SEAMAT).

The South Essex Alliance is an education trust that is committed to running dynamic, ever-improving schools. We work to make sure that every child feels they belong in their school and that they are lit up with learning. For us, learning is an adventure. It is a privilege and a responsibility for all who work with us to ensure that the journey through school is exciting, challenging, caring and enriching, and that every child experiences joy, wonder, calm and success.

Rebecca is a Senior strategic leader, with wide ranging experience as a system leader within education and social enterprise. Rebecca believes in ecological and holistic approaches to organisational change and development, within education, business and lifestyle. Cross-disciplinary perspectives, permaculture principles, systems thinking, inclusion, light and love are all evident in Rebecca’s leadership journey.
