At Uplands Infant and Nursery School our core purpose is for our children to leave us as confident and fluent readers, writers and early mathematicians with a love of learning to maximise their life chances.
We do this through quality first teaching and our curriculum, which plays to the strengths, needs and interests of our children whilst ensuring that chances to close knowledge gaps are seized and a positive mind-set is developed.
The acquisition of language is the ‘golden thread’ that permeates throughout our school; our children talk all day, every day, developing their speaking, listening and language skills. Our carefully planned learning environment is integral to the quality of our curriculum and supports high expectations in all children’s learning. Character muscles, critical to children’s aptitude and attitudes to learning and life are embodied within our curriculum. In addition to this, we provide extracurricular activities to further improve well-being; build self-esteem and show children more of the world around them.
At Uplands Infants we provide a happy, warm and caring environment where all of our children feel safe and secure and are eager to learn. Everyone is encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and to care for, respect and value others and the environment. This ethos is reflected in our 7 Golden Rules and 10-character muscles which apply not only in school but in our day to day lives within modern Britain.
