During the imposed lockdown, school will remain open for vulnerable and keyworkers’ children. 

Vision and Ethos

Our Vision

We work with students, families and the community to provide a safe,
supportive, caring and collaborative environment that nurtures, inspires and
challenges, leading to suitable levels of achievement for all.

We will motivate our young people to move successfully along their life
journeys, through academic, vocational, social and recreational opportunities
appropriate to the needs, interests and abilities of all pupils.

We support our young people in sustaining positive relationships both in
school and in the home.

Our Ethos and Values

Unified Academy follows a nurture-based reflective and restorative approach with
all students.

We have the highest standards and expectations for all children to experience
success, lead empathetic lives and fill productive roles as members of society. Their
individual contributions to school life will be valued and their talents celebrated.
Students, staff, parents and visitors will show respect for, acceptance of and
responsibility to ourselves, each other and the wider community.

Together we will build a fun, safe and caring school that promotes the joy of learning,
high personal achievement, respect for individual differences, dignity for all and
equal opportunities by eliminating discrimination.

We will nurture, encourage and listen to every voice in our community, including
students, parents and carers, friends and staff. Maximising the potential of every
student will be placed at the heart of all decision making.

We will always be a strong advocate for Unified Academy; being proud of our school and Trust.

Our Aims

We will:

  • Ensure mutual respect for every person connected with the school
  • Support all students to leave as confident and independent individuals, armed with the necessary skills to ensure that they can advocate effectively for themselves.
  • Support students to pursue their ambitions, attain full social inclusion and achieve a high quality of life.
  • Provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, engaging and interesting, focused on the individual needs of each student, supporting the development of key academic, functional, vocational and creative skills.
  • Teach our students to keep themselves healthy and safe
  • Help our students to learn to understand and manage their feelings
  • Provide help for parents & carers to support and nurture their children

 

 

 

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
