Our Mission Statement
At Upton St James CofE Primary School, our aim is that everyone in our school community can
‘rise to their best’ – both individually and collectively. We have the highest expectations for all our learners and aim for them to be well-prepared for their next phase of education as ‘lifelong learners’, ‘avid readers’, ‘confident communicators’ and ‘active, respectful citizens’. Our pupils are taught to show love and respect to our local, British and global neighbours, as well as develop their own emotional resilience.
We reflect God’s love in our community, encouraging each other to ‘love our neighbour as we love ourselves’ (taken from Mark 12: 30 – 31). We are proud to be a Rights Respecting School where the children’s rights, as written in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) form the core values of our school.
We focus on these core rights to fulfil our vision:
A right to learn and be heard (Article 12, 28)
A right to respect (Article 2)
A right to safety (Article 19)
