New alternative provision set to open in 2023
The Rivers CofE Academy Trust will open Unity Academy, a primary, alternative provision setting, in September 2023.
Situated on the old Sladen Middle School site in Hurcott Road, Kidderminster, Unity Academy will provide education for up to 60 pupils aged 4-11 years.
The purpose-built school will be for children who cannot access or manage in mainstream school, for reasons including school exclusion, behavioural issues, illness or bereavement.
The Department for Education has identified a growing demand for additional alternative provision primary school places in Worcestershire. The proposed school development will help to meet this identified need and forms an integral part of Worcestershire County Council’s five-year strategic School Organisation Plan.
