Welcome to Upton Heath C of E Primary School
I am extremely proud to be Headteacher of Upton Heath C of E Primary School. I passionately believe that every child should be able to learn through an inspiring and challenging curriculum. When a child enters our school we aim to ensure that they are nurtured and well cared for; they will achieve their very best academically and that they become creative, resourceful and resilient individuals. They will feel happy and secure and enjoy their time at our school. Ability comes in many forms and all learners need to be supported to enjoy success no matter where their talents lie. This is what we do and we do it well!
Not only is our teaching great, the size of our school also benefits children in preparation for that important transition to High School, wherever that may be. In our most recent Ofsted inspection our school was judged as Outstanding for Behaviour and Safety.
"Pupils’ pride in their school is shown by their excellent conduct around the school. They are extremely articulate and talk enthusiastically and very positively about their activities and experiences at school."
and our most recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools report (June 2016) noted that,
"Pupils' behaviour and attitudes are exemplary'.....'Pupils' spiritual and personal development is extremely good." ''Respectful, inclusive relationships nurture and support pupils and their familes and break down barriers to learning.'
Feedback from the High Schools about our Year 6 pupils show that they are very well prepared for their high schools and attainment is greater than national age related standards overall with progress throughout school being good and outstanding.
"Excellent relationships between teachers and pupils help create classrooms conducive to learning." Ofsted 2013
Our most recent inspection for church schools (June 2016) noted that our school was a good school and through our distinctive Christian character we are OUTSTANDING at meeting the needs of ALL learners. By creating an innovative curriculum experience we ensure that our principles underpin all that we do. Whether your child is involved in our Forest Schools, learning to play a musical instrument, performing Shakespeare on stage in a local theatre, competing in the wide variety of extra-curricular activities or learning to speak Spanish, we can assure you that we aim to deliver a diverse, inspiring curriculum.
Our website can only give you a small insight into our school so I warmly welcome you to come and visit us. We look forward to meeting you in the very near future if we don't already know you!
Mrs Paula Moreton
