Happy New Year from us all at Upperthong - we are excited for a new term, and looking forward to seeing everyone again.
I am delighted that you are interested in Upperthong Junior and Infant school, a school which is committed to providing a first rate learning journey for all our children.
At Upperthong, we believe that primary education should focus on achievement in all aspects of school life; all achievements are celebrated and successes shared. Our children enjoy coming to school and speak articulately about what it has to offer. Our website will provide you with a range of information and a snapshot of our school, the curriculum and the activities we offer all our children.
The staff are hard working professionals and their commitment to providing the best is evident in all aspects of their work. As a school, we value the partnership between ourselves and parents/carers and welcome any offers of help and support. We believe that communication is the key to an effective relationship and we actively encourage dialogue as we strive to work together to ensure all children’s needs are met.
Together with the staff and pupils, I welcome you to our school community. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of our school in greater depth, or experience the school first hand, please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange an appointment to visit; myself or a member of staff will be only too pleased to show you round.
