We are working alongside Suffolk County Council to develop additional specialist education places in our schools.
In September, Unity Schools Partnership (USP) launched its Section 10 consultation in relation to its new Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Free School, the Sir Bobby Robson School in Ipswich.
When it opens in September 2020, the school will have capacity to take 60 pupils in the eight to 16 age range.
As part of the process of opening a new school, Unity Schools Partnership is legally required to hold a consultation exercise (under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010) to determine whether the trust should enter into a funding agreement with the Department for Education.
This consultation allowed parents/carers and pupils, staff and governors from local schools, other local authorities, councillors, local residents and any other interested parties to learn more about Sir Bobby Robson School and USP and share their views.
We are delighted to publish the full report of our Section 10 Consultation (please click on the link on the top right of this page).
