A welcome from the Executive Headteacher, Mrs Michaela Lewis, B.Ed (Hons)
I welcome you and your child to Upton Junior School. I hope that it is the beginning of a long and happy association with our school. Our aim is, at all times, to ensure that every child makes the most of his or her abilities. Success is a great motivator and all children have the right to enjoy success.
Our 'vision' is to provide a high-quality, rounded and creative education, through which every child can know the joy of learning, and be supported to reach his or her potential. All children have strengths. These can readily be seen in academic achievement or in artistic, musical, dramatic and sporting success. Equal to these are the abilities which help us to excel as people. We aim to create a calm yet highly stimulating environment, within which every child can feel secure and grow in self-confidence, gaining the necessary personal, social and academic life-skills to succeed in a rapidly changing world - whilst never forgetting the vital importance of such "traditional values" as courtesy and thought for others.
We hope that Upton Junior School stands at the centre of the community. The school is well-known in the area for its heated indoor swimming pool, which is used by many other local schools and organisations. The school playing fields are used by our children, and many sports groups. The partnership between home, school and the wider community is integral to the success of Upton and we wholeheartedly believe in working together for the benefit of our children.
I look forward to getting to know you and your child during the time we will share together at Upton Junior School.
Mrs Michaela Lewis
