Parent Testimonials

Working closely with students’ families is a crucial part of our work at Unified Academy.

We want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to support and nurture our students to achieve their ambitions.  Your feedback helps us to focus on key areas for improvement and the issues that are important to you and your child.

Some feedback from parents and carers:

“My son and I sat down and spoke about what he wants to do because we have been invited to look around another school. My son said he does not want to look anywhere else as he doesn’t want to leave Unified as he is loving it there and has made friends already, so if it’s okay I’ll be cancelling my appeal to change his school and want to keep him at Unified. I am so happy that he loves it and even though I wasn’t too happy at first about sending him I can honestly say my mind has been changed and I am so happy I sent him, he hasn’t come out unhappy once, he has always had fun and he loves his teachers. Thank you for giving him a chance and making him feel so welcome and happy to be there.”

“The staff at this school have been amazing with my son from year 7 all the way to year 11. Understanding, sensitive and flexible to his needs. They have gone over and above to make sure he accesses education and continues to grow emotionally and socially. I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s becoming – Thank you.”

“The time my son spent at Unified Academy was a memorable experience for us both thanks to the wonderful, kind, caring staff at the school. They always took the time to listen to my concerns, understand the challenges that I faced with my son and I’m very grateful for them. My son still asks every week about his favourite staff members and wants to go to the school to see how they are.”

“My son has never been so happy to go to school, I have seen a real change in him. He is also happier to go out and socialise as he feels that he has friends”.

“My son has settled into Unified Academy quite quickly. He enjoys spending his time at  school and has made a very nice group of friends that he also interacts with outside of school. I have seen a great improvement with his manners and self esteem. He has become more focused on his schooling, I am very proud of him and he should be proud of himself.”

“I would like to thank all the staff at Unified Academy for their continuous support and interaction with my son. Especially Joanna who has made an amazing bond with him. Prior to attending Unified Academy my son was withdrawn, unhappy and unable to respond to conventional education. He needed a school which offered alternative schooling structured to his capability and needs.

Unified Academy and all the staff within the school have applied their knowledge and understanding to my son’s individual needs. Now he is excelling within an educational environment and has developed the most amazing cooking skills that he reproduces at home. He now loves learning and is making outstanding progress within social and educational settings. Thank you to all the staff at Unified Academy.”

“I would like to thank all the staff that have made my son feel welcome at your Academy. After last year at his old school we never thought we could help him feel happy and want to go to school. Now we are 100 % positive we made the right choice.”

“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!”
