One Childhood: One Chance
Our vision is to ensure every child achieves his/her potential through a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning. Ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and maths is our core purpose. All staff consistently and energetically use the most effective methods for teaching these basic skills. High quality training, from leading experts in English and maths teaching, equips them to do so.
Underpinning this is:
- outstanding day-to-day assessment and marking of children’s work;
- first-rate systems for tracking, identifying and celebrating children’s progress;
- an exciting, relevant and inspiring curriculum;
- excellent support for the needs of each child.
Our learning environment is vibrant, supportive and welcoming. Classrooms are full of children motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons. Our staff are passionate about the children’s success and ensuring Upton provides a first class education for every child.
We understand that children will achieve best when home and school work together. Effective communication and our ‘Open Door Policy’ underpin our strong parent relationship. Every parent/carer feels proud of their child’s/children’s achievements – and knows exactly what these are. Clear guidance is given about the best ways to support children with learning out of school.
All of this is done because, at Upton, our children and their education matter more than anything else. One Childhood: One Chance!
