An Ipswich-based school named after Sir Bobby Robson has announced its first ever headteacher.
The Unity Schools Partnership are in the process of applying to set up a new primary school and nursery in Bridge Close, Romford.
The Department for Education is currently accepting bids for new schools in areas of need around the country.
The need for the new school on Bridge Close is based on the Havering Housing Trajectory which states the need for an increase in primary school places as a result of a number of new housing developments.
Unity Schools Partnership aims to create an outstanding primary free school with high standards of achievement, excellent progress and outstanding teaching.
The Trust is a partnership of primary, secondary and special schools located on the Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire borders with an emerging presence in East London. We share the same values, face similar issues and are geographically close enough to support and challenge each other.
We recognise, however, the unique characteristics of each of the communities we work in and how they are reflected in distinctive school cultures.
We encourage cultural diversity, celebrate the special qualities of each of our schools and recognise that for communities to become sustainable they must develop and grow.
Unity Romford Primary School will be an integral part of our Trust and nd will incorporate the Trust’s ambition for learners - to develop succesful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
At the heart of this, the Trust believes that a strong link between home and school is essential for the progress of all children alongside creating an outstanding Teaching and Learning policy.
