We Are Unity

– Characterised by ethical leadership and ambition for improvement at pace –

Unity Schools Partnership is a family of secondary, primary, middle and special schools located mainly in Suffolk, and also on the Essex and Cambridgeshire borders as well as Romford in East London.

We share the same values and face similar issues, while providing a close network of support and challenge.

We recognise the unique characteristics of each of the communities we work in and how they are reflected in distinctive school cultures.

We are committed to a partnership that respects, sustains and supports. We encourage cultural diversity, celebrate the special qualities of each of our schools and recognise that communities must develop and grow to become sustainable.

Our model is about creating interdependence – schools that are more self-sustaining than stand-alone academies, less dependent than local authority schools and more independent than schools in corporate chains.

We 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. Our ambition is to unlock the potential of all children, remove the barriers that limit 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 throughout the trust.

Our Priorities

We believe that children’s potential should not be limited – no matter what their starting point and barriers to learning. We encourage pupils to strive constantly to gain independent learning skills and have the courage to take risks and develop personal responsibility in order to make a successful transition to adulthood.

The collaboration amongst our family of schools, the Central Team structure and our expert advisers helps our teachers and schools to ‘smash through barriers’. To this end, our focus is on school improvement for all pupils, with specific support for pupils with SEND and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
