About this cause
Uplands Primary School opened in 1962 and was built on the site of ‘Uplands House’. It is a one form-entry school. Every child matters at Uplands and every decision the school takes is based on what is in the best interest of the children. It is important to the PTA that the children at Uplands feel happy and secure, that they respect each other and that they have the self confidence and self esteem to achieve their full potential in a wide range of areas. The PTA works in partnership with the school to enhance the children’s learning. With the current economic situation having such a detrimental effect on school, it is of paramount importance that the PTA continue to support the school in all aspects of educational provision.
How this cause brings people in the community together
At Uplands Primary School and Uplands Nursery, the PTA are working to raise money to improve our electronic resource provisions. Our vision is to provide a set of laptops for Nursery/Key Stage 1 and another set for Key Stage 2, to ensure that every child has access to resources to improve their education at all times. Technology is a huge part of life for our young minds and teaching them to use technology effectively and safely, in addition to core skills such as writing, will help to prepare our pupils for all areas of life. Technology supports all of our lessons and is integral to our teaching. Funding from this scheme for additional resources would help us reach the goal of providing children with the appropriate technology to thrive and excel in their learning.
