Unity Schools Partnership transforms lives. Through geographical hubs of like-minded schools and a vision of excellence that is shared by all, schools smash through barriers to achieve more than others think possible.
Who we are
Unity Schools Partnership is a partnership of schools located on the Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire borders and Romford. We share the same values, face similar issues and are geographically close enough to support and challenge each other.
We recognise, however, the unique characteristics of each of the communities we work in and how they are reflected in distinctive school cultures. We encourage cultural diversity, celebrate the special qualities of each of our schools and recognise that communities to become sustainable must develop and grow.
We are not looking for corporate solutions but a partnership that respects, sustains and supports. Our model is about creating interdependence; schools that more self-sustaining than stand-alone academies, less dependent than local authority schools and more independent than schools in corporate chains.
However, we do all subscribe to a set of shared values, principles and operational processes that ensure quality education for all our young people. Our central belief is that every young life is special; open to possibility, gifted with the potential to change the world for the better but also bound by the limits of their own circumstances. Our ambition is to unlock the potential of all children, remove the barriers to aspiration and ensure that all our children succeed.
We will work with schools that can subscribe to these values and who are prepared to take responsibility and share resources with others. This approach is already improving the life chances of pupils in primary, special and secondary schools. Please come and help us help more.
The vision of Unity Schools Partnership is to achieve the highest standards of education in its primary, secondary and special schools.
It is our intention that all trust schools, and the trust as a whole, is recognised locally and nationally for the exceptional quality of its educational provision.
We are a family of interdependent schools with a shared ambition to transform lives.
We have a commitment to the development of a very high quality and evidence-informed model of how excellence is achieved.
Our work is fostered by geographical hubs of schools in close proximity that understand their specific communities.
Unity Schools Partnership expects its work to be characterised by:
- Ethical leadership
- Excellent communication
- Endless ambition
- Strong relationships
- Belief in success for all
