Welcome to Upton Westlea school- we hope that you and your family are safe and well. 

We strive to provide a nurturing, stimulating, engaging curriculum for your children.

We will be spending the first few weeks getting to know each other and linking our activities to the children's interests.

School gates close at 8.45 am, so please bring your child into the playground by 8.40 am so we can line up and get ready to go in. 


The children follow the EYFS curriculum which is new from September 2021. We use Pathways to Write for Literacy and White Rose for Number and Maths. We also work through a whole school program called 'No Outsiders' and 'My Happy Mind'. 

The children will be taking part in daily phonics sessions. 

We will also be holding a Phonics/Reading meeting in the next half term 

Remember snack money is £1.20 each Monday (or can be paid half termly). 


PE will be on Wednesday The children should come ready for hall time in a white PE t-shirt, black/blue leggings / tracksuit bottoms, black/ blue hoddie and appropriate footwear. 

Dojo rewards  is a great way for the children to be rewarded for everything fabulous that they do! We have sent home log in details for you to be kept notified whenever your child receives a dojo in class. Please try to register with your log in details as this is a great motivator. 

If you ever need to speak to us please use the Class Dojo for messages.
