NAME: Jude Lee
ROLE: Principal, Unity Community Primary

ABOUT ME: I have great pleasure in introducing myself as the Principal of Unity Community Primary School. I have worked in Manchester schools for over 20 years and within the Cheetwood area for the last 8 years. I love working in such a diverse area and am really excited to have opened a new school for this community.

Unity delivers first-class education in partnership with our families and the community. I feel privileged to be able to lead Unity from its opening stages to be an outstanding school and look forward to sharing the journey with you. Our vision is that ‘together we will set our children on a path to fulfil their dreams’. We do this by:

OUTSTANDING AND INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

We will provide an outstanding education, which is respectful of the diverse ethnicity, religion, families, educational needs and abilities of all our children.

PROMOTING WELL-BEING

Our vision is that children are happy and engaged in their school. We will ensure that they know how to be healthy and are able to make good choices for themselves. We will support them to develop their own thoughts and express their feelings in a safe environment.

ASPIRATIONAL AND INSPIRATIONAL SUPPORT FROM BIRTH

We will work with parents and partners agencies to educate, develop and care for children from birth into high school. Our children will be inspired to achieve their full potential.

EMBRACING COMMUNICATION AND ENTERPRISE

Unity Community Primary school will have a strong focus on Communication and Enterprise working with families to ensure children are confident communicators from an early age. Our focus on enterprise will raise achievement and help young people to become confident individuals, equipping them with skills for life to create a more positive and prosperous future for themselves.

CONNECTING TO THE WIDER WORLD

The children and families at our school have settled in Cheetwood and the Salford area from all over the world. We will harness their experiences to ensure our school curriculum is outward looking. In order to understand the world around us more, Unity became a UNICEF Rights Respecting School in 2017. We have achieved this award in recognition of all the work we have done around children’s rights and embedding the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child (CRC) in to everything we do

VALUING AND ENGAGING PARENTS AND CHILDREN

Unity Community Primary was developed in response to parents and children wanting high quality education on their doorstep. We’re passionate about families receiving outstanding services, families getting involved in their children’s education and working with families to ensure children leave school with the skills they need to fulfil their dreams.
