Welcome from the Headteacher

 

Self-Belief, Happiness, Aspiration, Achievement, Respect, Responsibility

At Upton Primary school we believe that every child deserves a big future. Together, we aim to teach our children that they can achieve their very best in everything they do and that hard work and determination are the keys to success in life. We encourage one another to understand that diversity is to be celebrated both on our doorstep and beyond and that our community and future is firmly built on the values that we have chosen.

We know that all children need to feel happy and safe both in and out of school and take pride in the manner in which we behave to one another. We look outwardly in our pursuit of improvement and believe that collaboration with other schools, parents and providers will bring new opportunities for our children. We are seeking new, innovative ways of learning while remembering that the past can teach us much. We are building a new curriculum that must engage, interest and excite, whilst giving every child the skills and understanding that will underpin their future choices in learning and life.

With an eye to the future we understand that we and our children live in a rapidly changing world. We embrace change for the better and challenge ourselves to create an excellent education for every child, while remembering to have fun along the way.
