Denewood and Unity Academies Information
Denewood and Unity Academies support young people aged 7 – 16 who have been permanently excluded from mainstream education. We have a clear ethos of meeting the individual learning, social and emotional needs of young people so that they can be reintegrated back into mainstream education.
We provide this under a framework of a caring, supportive and structured environment.
Young people will be helped to develop their individual potential for growth, self-worth and self-control through experiencing clear and consistent guidance and support on appropriate ways of behaving towards other people within our Academies and the wider world.
Our curriculum was recently redeveloped. Pupils and staff were consulted and what was developed are our 3 values; that children should be aspirational, responsible and enthusiastic about their learning, within their community and most importantly within themselves.
About Raleigh Learning Trust
Our Trust is founded on a straightforward moral imperative. We seek to support school improvement across our organisation in order to ensure that all learners within our Academies are in receipt of the best possible educational services that can be provided within the scope of our available resources.

Our purpose is to ensure that every child for whom we hold responsibility has access to the highest possible standards of teaching and learning, supported by strong staff teams equipped with outstanding resources. Our core aim will be to deliver remarkable and memorable learning experiences that the pupils will value and benefit from now, as they progress into lifelong learning, and the potential for a lifetime of fruitful employment.
Our vision is to create the educational and social experiences that our pupils need to overcome any barriers to engagement and afford them the opportunity to become successful learners. We will promote our ambitions within a framework of a caring, supportive and structured environment. We will secure the circumstances within which our pupils will be helped to develop their individual potential for growth, enhance their self-worth and develop their capacity to demonstrate choice and responsibility in all aspects of their lives. Our Trust will secure the expectation of high-quality teaching and learning environments within which there are no limits to ambition.
