Funding: People first

14 March 2017

You may have read about school budget cuts in the local and national press. I want to reassure our community that there are no planned reductions in teachers or support staff at USH in the coming years. In fact, we are growing our teacher numbers as we realise our gradual expansion in the next five years. Julie Prince (our Business Manager) is doing a first-rate job in managing our money to make efficiencies. I'm not saying it's easy or simple but we are working closely with our governors and multi-academy trust to continue to make achievable savings where we need to. At USH our people come first and they always will.


“I would just like to say what a pleasure it was visiting your school and meeting the pupils, who without exception came across as polite and confident young people.” Interview candidate
