Welcome to Upton Snodsbury C of E First School
"Where a Love of Learning Grows"
'And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.' - Colossians 3:14
Welcome to our school website, which I hope will give you an insight into the life and educational opportunities on offer at Upton Snodsbury C of E First School.
It was set up in 1865 with money from rental income of 3 cottages gifted by Mrs Alice Greene, mother of the then vicar, Rev. Armel Greene. She had realised the need for a village school since the Sunday School was attended by over 70 children.
We are a Church of England school and strong our Christian values permeate through all of our teaching and learning. Because our Christian values underpin all that we do, there is a very caring, inclusive and respectful ethos ever present in our school and children develop spiritualty as individuals. We are the beginning of the learning journey for our children so we endeavor to ensure that every child is equipped with skills, knowledge and understanding to support them throughout their life.
From their very first school experience, our children benefit from a highly dedicated team of teachers, support staff and governors who strive tirelessly to provide a caring and supportive environment which enables all our pupils to flourish. Our school is full of laughter, fun and warmth. We very much believe that happy learners make successful learners. Every child is special, and we celebrate their unique strengths and abilities and everyone is viewed as family.
We are proud of our strong relationship with the children, parents and local community and these relationships support us in our aim of supporting the school community in their learning. As a school, we set high expectations which result in children achieving to the best of their ability. This is academically as well as developing socially, morally and spirituality.
Upton Snodsbury is a Church of England School. In our last SIAMs inspection, we were judged as 'Outstanding' (2016). This celebrated our strong Christian ethos and our values. Ofsted also judged as 'Outstanding'. However as our school moto states we are a place of "Where a Love of Learning Grows' so we continuously review our practice and pedagogy and strive to provide the highest quality learning experiences for your children.
We trust that you will find the information you are looking for on the website, as well as discovering what makes Upton Snodsbury a school that we are incredibly proud of.
