We 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.

Upton Junior School prides itself on our vision to ensure that every child reaches their full potential during their four years with us. This is made possible through the high quality teaching and learning that we provide to enable all of our children to make good or better progress - not only reading, writing and maths, but across all curriculum areas.
Our passionate and talented staff team are key to achieving this goal. We share collective aims: we want every child in the school to be happy and safe; inspired and enthused to learn; and to experience a first-class education! We understand that all children learn differently and so we ensure that our lessons are fun, engaging and incorporate whole-brain teaching.
The environment that we provide for the children is welcoming, stimulating and supportive. Children are motivated by their surroundings and by the many opportunities provided. Our school is a positive place to learn and develop not only academically, but also socially and emotionally.
At Upton we pride ourselves on knowing each child individually and catering for their individual needs. We recognise the importance of getting to know each and every member of our school. The children in our school feel valued and respected for their unique qualities, as well as of part of a team - Team Upton!
We fully believe that all children will attain more when home and school work in collaboration with one another. We have an ‘Open Door Policy’ and welcome you into our school at any point to discuss your child. Working together we will achieve more.
Our children are the heart of our school and their education and wellbeing are paramount to us.
'One Childhood: One Chance!'
