Our vision is for the Uplands Community to be a diverse, inclusive and welcoming environment for pupils, staff, parents and visitors.
The Governing Board of Uplands Primary School and Nursery adheres to the recommendations outlined in the Equality Act 2010. Uplands Primary School and Nursery will, through its Equality Duty and Equality Objectives, identify and record the progress we have made towards achieving equality and tackling discrimination, taking into consideration the views of those affected by inequality, including staff, parents/carers, governors and pupils. It will be undertaken in partnership with the school’s community and local authority.

Parents can request an update on their child’s progress at any point during the year. The Equality Duty is published on our website, here, in conjunction with the Equality Objectives.
