Welcome to Upwood Community Primary School
Location and Buildings
Upwood School was built upon its present site in 1960, moving from its original location in the centre of the village of Upwood.
The building provides generous accommodation which includes large teaching areas all with their own practical work areas; a large hall and separate dining area, library, reading areas and school offices.
At the front of the school, there is a large play area which is used as a netball court and general all weather hard court games area. To the rear of the building there is an enclosed split-level courtyard, complete with flower beds, picnic benches, shrubbery and lavender garden; an ideal quiet retreat from the bustle of the playground.
Beyond the courtyard is the heated learner pool and playing field, with running track, football pitch and Millennium Willow Dome.
"We set high standards and strive for excellence in all we do"
- In the process of education children are learning to make decisions, to perceive,
to value, to create and to understand their world.
- Our task is to prepare our
children not just for today but for the future.
- We can best help them to make a
positive contribution to change and to cope with uncertainty, by encouraging
them to have open, enquiring minds, to think for themselves and to work
- To this end we provide a broad and well-balanced curriculum for all children.
- We strongly advocate a practical approach to learning and place emphasis on
the fundamental areas of literacy, numeracy and the study of science.
