Yes, my then partner
lived with me in the uk at that time when i was exercising my treaty rights,
If you were not married at the time you were exercising treaty rights in the UK, that would complicate matters.
Unmarried partners do not have the same rights under EU law that spouses/married couples have.
While your partner was resident in the UK with you, was s/he issued with a Family Permit/Residence Card under the UK EEA Regulations?
Even if it were, I am not sure that the EU law's Surinder Singh route would apply. You would be better off applying for your spouse to join you in Poland under Polish legislation.
Alternatively, live in another EEA member-state of which you are not a citizen with your spouse while you exercise treaty rights there and then move back to Poland under the Surinder Singh route.
