The Upton Meadows Way

At Upton Meadows, our vision is to develop well rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential.  We aim to encourage children to understand the need for high standards in all aspects of school life – work, play, relationships and behaviour, and to take pride in all they do.  In order to develop within every child respect and a sense of responsibility for themselves, each other, property, the wider community and the environment, we have produced the ‘Upton Meadows Way’ curriculum in which we define the behaviours and habits that we expect students to demonstrate. We want to support our pupils to grow into adults who are polite, respectful, grateful and who put others before themselves. We believe that as pupils practise these behaviours, over time they become automatic routines that positively shape how they feel about themselves and how other people perceive them.  “We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” (Paul Durant, 1926)
