About Us

We are a Committee run group operating term-time from the school since 1979.

Aims and Objectives

  • To maintain a happy and friendly ethos

  • To provide an exciting and stimulating enviroment, one that is safe and secure where children can learn through play

  • To provide a curriculum that takes account of children's interests and ensures that all children can develop to their full potential

  • To support children in developing a positive attitude to learning, creating the best chance to become life-long learners

  • To encourage the use of creativity across the curriculum to facilitate exploration, problem solving skills and independence

A message from the Head of Upwood Primary School:

"The staff and governors at Upwood Primary School and Upwood Small to Tall work hand in hand to ensure children are safe and happy on the school site. 

The breakfast club provides essential child care for working parents/carers and impacts on children's learning in the classroom by providing the correct start to the day.

Pre-School introduces children to many of the skills they later develop in school life, with a stimulating and creative enviroment, together with the routines they encounter at Upwood Primary School. As a result, there is a transition from Pre-School to Reception class

The after school club is extremely popular and supports the curriculum by assisting with homework tasks and extending the outdoor curriculum. We greatly value the care that Upwood Small To Tall provide for the children and are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed team working with our school."
