Headteacher's update

WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL

Mrs Julie Wills, Headteacher

WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL

As the Headteacher of Upton-upon-Severn CofE Primary and Pre-School, I enjoy working with such a wonderful team of children, parents, staff and Governors.  I believe strongly in a team ethos, both in and out of the classroom. Our aims are to create a happy and successful school which fully addresses the children’s learning in a vibrant and stimulating Christian environment.  

We are particularly fortunate in that our Pre-School caters for children from the age of 2 years old and work within our Early Years unit. This covers children from 2 up to their Reception age, when they start school.  We offer a Breakfast Club which runs from 7.45 am and an after school care facility is available for those parents who require it.  

We respect and value all children and are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Safeguarding of all within our community is vital.

Please see our Safeguarding Policy and Statement under the ‘Policies’ section.  On 1st December 2016 we took over the running of the Riverboats Children’s Centre and are currently working to expand services in this area.

We have many different and exciting learning experiences that we plan for our children.  As a school based in Upton-upon-Severn we use the river to enhance the team development of our children and are fortunate enough to own a Bell-boat which we enjoy as part of our school activities.  

I would welcome the opportunity to show you round our school.

What the Parents Say

“It is a friendly and welcoming school and my son has settled well.”

“My daughter is given opportunities to express herself and really enjoys every moment at school, learning curriculum and social skills.”

“I would recommend this school because my child was a quiet and timid boy and I can see what a confident and more outgoing child my son has become since joining Upton Primary School.”

“The staff and administration at Upton-upon-Severn Primary School are exceptional in their desire to see students happy and thriving academically and personally.”

“This school oozes with creativity, beauty and happiness.  Our boys, Year 2, Year 1 and Pre-School, have settled in amazingly well since moving here.  We really couldn’t ask for a better environment for them to lean, grow and achieve in.”

What our children Say

“Our school is the greatest school in Upton, we have the greatest Headteacher.

They take us to interesting places.  My favourite is Forest School where we get to make dens and get to use knives and make stuff.   We can have hot chocolate and hotdogs.

Mrs Wills makes a fire and that’s where we grill the hotdogs.”

“I think our school is special because we work as a team and persevere.  We also have a school moto – ‘anything is possible if we all succeed.”

“I think this school is really amazing because we have no grumpy or sad teachers.  Also we do loads of fun stuff like forest school.”

“I think our school is special.  Our school never gives up, we can all succeed, anything is possible.”

“Upton-upon-Severn Primary School is the school for you.

We go to forest school every Friday and we build dens out of bricks and sticks.”

“I think that this school is good because all the children are kind and caring.  We do forest school which is at Clive’s Fruit Farm and our school moto is ‘anything is possible and we can all succeed.”

“Our school is special because the teachers take us to loads of trips and we work as a team.  We also go to forest school every Thursday.”

“I think our school is special because we work as a team and the teachers are especially special because they are very kind.”

“This school is amazing and the teachers are really kind and the teachers arrange lots of amazing trips that you will never find in any other schools, like we get taken to the Houses of Parliament and basically anywhere in the Country.  In our corridor we have a wall display and we share our best things that we do.  You should rate this school 10/10.”

“I like Upton-upon-Severn because it is very safe and the teachers are very kind and generous and we go to forest school and sometimes we have Smores and jacket potatoes and we go to trips too.”
