West Row Academy is delighted to announce that we will be joining Unity Schools Partnership from September 2023.

The primary school in Beeches Row, West Row, will officially move to the Suffolk-based trust on 1st September from Eastern Multi-Academy Trust.

Welcoming the move, Lis Close, headteacher at West Row Academy, said: “I think everyone connected to the school is very excited about joining Unity Schools Partnership.

“The support we have already been offered as we prepare to officially join the trust has been fantastic and we look forward to this continuing even more from September.

“We have already begun working with the Unity team to ensure we will be ready to implement the CUSP Curriculum from September. We can see the improvements and benefits this will make to our children’s education.

“I have a great staffing team and we are making strong strides. I think everyone can see this is the right thing for both the school and the community.”

Tim Coulson, chief executive of Unity Schools Partnership, said: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to support staff, pupils and the whole school community at West Row Academy.

“From our initial meetings and work with the school, we quickly saw how loved it is and how much great work is taking shape.

“We would like to thank colleagues at Eastern Multi-Academy Trust for helping us with a smooth transition. We look forward to working with everyone connected to the school going forward.”

In September, West Row Academy will become the 19th primary school to join Unity Schools Partnership.
