Unity Schools Partnership (USP) is delighted to launch its Section 10 consultation in relation to its new Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Free School, the Sir Bobby Robson School.

When it opens in September 2020, the school will have capacity to take 60 pupils in the eight to 16 age range.

As part of the process of opening a new school, Unity Schools Partnership is legally required to hold a consultation exercise (under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010) to determine whether the trust should enter into a funding agreement with the Department for Education.

The consulation will be run online as well as a public consulation event (see details below).

This consultation will allow parents/carers and pupils, staff and governors from local schools, other local authorities, councillors, local residents and any other interested parties to learn more about Sir Bobby Robson School and USP and share their views.

This is an important step in our journey towards opening in September 2020 and we are looking forward to listening to your views in order to provide you with the best school possible.

The consultation period will run from Monday 16th September 2019 until Friday 1st November 2019.
