The Pupil Charter

United Learning schools aim to develop character, compassion and service. 

Young people are expected to contribute to their school and to society; to try things which they think they cannot do; to persist in the face of difficulty; to become resilient in overcoming obstacles; to manage themselves; to work independently on things which challenge them; to work with others and in teams; to be courageous and caring; to lead.

We want young people to look back on a joyful schooling which has inspired and challenged them, given them wide opportunity and prepared them for the ups and downs of life.

Pupil Charter Support

We believe that the best charters are developed by pupils and teachers in their school. The United Learning charter sets our expectations for the enrichment entitlement that each pupil will get access to during their career in a United Learning school. However, you may want to contextualise this and shape it to fit your school. You can also start with a more limited charter and have incremental plans in place for how you will develop it each year.
