Head Teacher

 

Mrs B Mckenzie - Head Teacher

I joined Upland as a member of the Senior Leadership Team in September 2004 and have been part of the many changes that the school has experienced and the journey it has been on. I have been Head Teacher since September 2017 and I am proud to lead this wonderful school, working alongside a dedicated staff team, ambitious governors, pupils that make me smile every day, and parents who are supportive. Upland is a school where everyone matters and we are constantly striving to make every day a valuable experience. I believe that all children deserve a bright future and in order to achieve this, we need to build resilient and determined pupils who believe in themselves, Children need to feel safe and happy therefore we foster relationships at Upland that allow them to flourish. We are always looking ahead in order to improve and firmly believe that in collaboration with parents, agencies and the wider community, we can bring about new opportunities for our children. We are proud of our history and our achievements but as society changes we need to provide children with the tools to tackle it. The future is exciting and our role is to create an excellent education for every child in a fun, inspiring and engaging way.
