Welcome to Uplands Junior Academy

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; we want children to strive for excellence, be aspirational, be confident, kind and caring and know that they are valued. Our Ofsted report in March 2019 affirmed that ‘Leaders are building a curriculum that helps pupils to build on what they already know.’ 

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Uplands Junior L.E.AD Academy, the school has a great feel to it; our children value their education, are well behaved and polite. We teach the National Curriculum but are constantly reviewing and refining the way we do this so that the curriculum is the best it can be our children at Uplands. Children’s learning and development are at the centre of everything we do. Parents are encouraged to be closely involved in their child’s education. 

We value the diversity of the backgrounds of our pupils, families and the wider school community and strongly believe in upholding British values through all aspects of our school provision. Learning about British values forms a key part of children’s spiritual, moral, cultural and social education. 

We welcome visitors to our academy, please contact the school office if you would like to look round. 

Mrs Lucy Carlisle
