Message from founder Steve Curran
Welcome! I’m Steve Curran - a headteacher and system leader committed to overcoming educational and social inequality. Three years ago, I set up a business dedicated to supporting schools to take on the complex problems that are at the root of inequality.
The Affinity approach is human-centric and collaborative; because the problems we specialise in are rooted in the student’s whole life experience and unique to a particular classroom, school, trust, or locality. Our goal is to inspire you to be inspired; by your learners, your community, and, most importantly, yourself.
We have collaborated with many creative thinkers from health, technology, and education to develop our approach. If you recognise the problems we describe, please read on.
We support educators in the UK and beyond to work creatively and collaboratively to overcome the complex, problems at the root of educational and social inequality.
We design services to support teachers and leaders in schools, multi-academy trusts, and local authorities to be a force for innovation within their community. Our services cover the following developmental areas:
improvement and growth,
social, emotional, and mental health barriers to learning,
community engagement and social enterprise.
We do what it takes to keep innovating and collaborating to support educators to overcome inequality.
Inspiring educators in the UK and beyond to inspire their communities to solve complex barriers to learning.
