Unity City Academy

Welcome to Unity City Academy where our vision is of a school in which staff and students have a determination to succeed, a love of learning, pride in the academy and a strength of character. We are committed to ensuring that all students are equipped with the academic and emotional skills which will allow them to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

All students follow a vision programme which aims to develop nine key character traits (curiosity, courage, empathy, enthusiasm, gratitude, integrity, resilience, self-belief and self-control). These character traits have been shown to boost academic performance and increase the chances of future success. Tutors and pupils work closely to develop these characteristics, tracking pupil progress throughout the year and intervening where necessary.

In addition to the character development which takes place in academic learning sessions, students are invited to take part in a range of extracurricular activities and enrichment. These sessions focus on developing character traits and additional skills which will complement students’ academic achievements. This offering is supplemented by three ‘Super Citizen Days’ which allow students to spend additional time developing their understanding of social norms, future opportunities and British values.

At Unity City Academy we aim to develop well rounded, successful students who are able to make the most of all the opportunities that are afforded to them in the twenty first century. By developing a determination to succeed, a love of learning, pride in the academy and a strength of character,  we believe that this will be a reality for our students.

Description

Personalised Learning is the title given to the provision for all students at Unity City Academy who have a special educational need, be it moderate or specific learning difficulties, sensory impairment or physical disability. We pride ourselves on ensuring we are inclusive to all of our students and personalised learning reflects our commitment to finding the best possible way of meeting the educational needs of individual children.

The Academy has an extensive range of provisions to meet the broad needs of our students. These include The Retreat, The Lodge and The Globe. In addition to this, we have a High Needs Learning Base that is accessed through Local Authority application.

In order to establish these excellent practices we have to work closely with families. If you are the parent or guardian of a child with special educational needs and are considering Unity City Academy as your school of choice please contact us to discuss your child’s learning needs.
