Thank you for visiting our website.

‘Anything is possible we can all succeed’
To inspire … to aspire

As a Church of England school, our children’s learning is rooted in a vibrant and stimulated Christian environment.

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I am passionate in my quest to ensure that our school provides the best possible foundation for children’s lifelong learning journey. We work to six key values and throughout our website you will see these intrinsically interwoven into all that we do. The values are:

RESPONSIBILITY RESPECT PERSEVERANCE
COMMUNITY TRUST COURAGE

We respect all our children and work with the wider school community focusing at all times on positivity. We strongly believe in a team ethos both in and out of the classroom and work taking inspiration from geese who fly 71% further in a ‘V’ formation than when they fly alone.

Our curriculum is innovative and engaging and we have many different and exciting learning experiences that we plan for our children through the entire school from Preschool all the way through to the end of Year 6.

We are incredibly fortunate to have the very stunning river Severn on our doorstep and we are able to draw on the spiritual essence that this river gives to our community, providing comfort for all of life’s challenges. Spending time by the water and allowing the tranquillity and spirituality of the riverside to surround us provides a wellbeing uplift that is unique and readily available for all those in Upton. We have our own bellboats and regularly use these during the summer months and early autumn to support our children’s physical development in this area. Forest school is also a vital part of our curriculum development and we ensure that every aspect of children’s development is given full support. This focus on outdoor learning ensures the children have a strong holistic base for their educational development.

We are proud to be strongly linked with our local community and unique to the history of our school the current serving Mayor of Upton is also a member of staff. We are involved with many different aspects within Upton and work very closely with our Parish Church, St Peters and St Pauls, where a number of our services are held during the year. I would welcome you to visit our school at any time to enable you to see our school in action.

We are unique in that we have the Riverboats Children’s Centre attached to the school and work closely with midwives and health visitors to ensure that from pre-birth right through to preschool we have facilities to support our families in the wider community. A speech and language therapist is based within school providing input to all our staff to facilitate ideas for children’s language development.

I would recommend you visit our school to enable me to give you a guided tour and see us in action.

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 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.”
