Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Uplands Junior L.E.A.D Academy

A community that lives, learns and laughs together

On behalf of pupils, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Uplands Junior L.E.A.D Academy

At Uplands Junior L.E.A.D Academy our aim is to become a community of life-long learners, striving for excellence, and inspired by achievement and success. Our latest HMI monitoring visit in June 2015 affirms that ‘strong relationships between pupils and adults continue to make the school a caring place to work and learn’.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Uplands Junior L.E.AD Academy. We are constantly developing and updating the resources that the school has to offer. As we grow and develop we are always pleased with the very positive reaction we receive from parents, children and visitors to our school. Children’s learning and development are at the centre of everything we do.

We will continue to work hard to establish and maintain strong links between home and school. Parents are encouraged to be closely involved in their child’s education.

Our staff are an enthusiastic, dedicated team of professionals, committed to strive the very best for each and every child within our care.

Ruth Gatherum
