Assistant Head Teacher

Ms C Smiles - Assistant Head Teacher

Mrs Abi Shepherd Ladybirds Class teacher

I joined Upland Primary School as a Year 6 teacher in September 2012 because I was blown away by the enthusiasm and charm of all the children here. Their resilience and determination, and love of learning, gives me the passion to be a part of the team that pushes our school forward everyday.

Since joining, I have taught over both Key Stages, as a class teacher and a phase leader, and have developed a sound understanding of the expectations of children at all stages of their primary educational journey.

I passionately believe in the power of learning and there is nothing I enjoy more than seeing children progress, both academically and emotionally, armed with all the tools they need to continue as successful lifelong learnings.
