Uplands Primary School and Nursery is our whole school unit, which includes our nursery (Uplands Nursery) and our primary school classes from Reception to Year 6. Mrs Deacon is the Headteacher for our primary school and nursery.
We are a one form-entry school, which means we have one class per year group and each class has 30 pupils.
Information on our curriculum can be located within the Key Information section. To know more about our school, we always recommend looking at our latest newsletters, which we produce weekly.
We are proud of our primary school and hope our website shows off what we’re all about.
Please be aware there are separate admission arrangements for the primary school and the nursery.
Admissions to Uplands Primary School are processed by Bracknell Forest Council.

|Class activity and end of the day|
School meals, which include a vegetarian choice or jacket potato, are available daily. There are sandwiches and wraps available depending on the time of year. School meals are payable online via Tucasi (Schools Cash Office – Scopay). All Key Stage 1 children are entitled to free school meals (known as Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)). Pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant may be entitled to free school meals (Free School Meals (FSM)). For more information on the Pupil Premium Grant, please speak to Mrs Powell in the school office.
As part of our aim to encourage all pupils to eat a balanced diet, which includes the recommended five portions of fruit/vegetables a day, we only permit children to bring a piece of fruit (fresh or dried), vegetables (e.g. carrot or celery sticks) and water, orange juice carton or milk to school for morning/afternoon break. At lunchtime, water jugs and beakers are placed on all tables for all pupils to use.
All pupils in Key Stage 1 are offered a free piece of fruit at morning break, as part of the Government’s ‘fruit for schools’ scheme.
Children are permitted to bring a water bottle to school to drink from. Bottles are available to purchase from the school office. For health reasons, please ensure bottles are labelled and taken home to wash. Indoor and outdoor water fountains are also available for the children to use.
Please see the Uniform Policy for more information.
The school uniform colours are green and grey:
For PE, children are required to wear a green t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. For activities in the hall, such as Gymnastics or Dance, bare feet are appropriate. In cold weather, a dark tracksuit is optional, but recommended.
We do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school due to health and safety. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance, such as a crucifix on a chain. We ask the children to remove these objects during PE and games wherever possible. If this is not possible, earrings may be covered with a plaster or surgical tape, to prevent them from causing injury to themselves or others.
Makeup, including nail varnish, is not permitted to be worn to school. Temporary tattoos should be removed before attending school.
Children must wear long or shoulder-length hair tied up with a hair band or other such grip/clip. Novelty hair accessories, such as ‘cat ears’ or large bows must not be worn for safety reasons. Extreme hair colours and hairstyles are not permitted.
Platform shoes and high heels are not permitted to be worn for safety reasons.
Trainers are not permitted to be worn at school, except for at play times, during PE lessons and at other sporting or outdoor events.
Brenda’s Schoolwear on Frimley Road, Camberley, stock our official uniform, which can also be ordered online from www.brendas.co.uk. As well as being able to purchase the clothing required above, you can also purchase the following Uplands-branded items:
Please ensure that all items of clothing, book bags and bottles have your child’s name on. Permanent marker pen is ideal for labelling plastic bottles and lunchboxes and iron-on name tabs are also a good way to keep your child’s clothes named. We regularly have a large amount of lost property and most items do not have names on/in. Please help us to ensure that all lost property finds its owner! We have a lost property box in the main school.
