Head Teacher's Message

Ulverley School provides a caring, supportive community in which all children are valued and provided with intellectual challenge. It is our aim to inspire all learners to follow their dreams, creating a better future for our global community.

All children have a right to a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. Work in school is designed to meet the requirement of the National Curriculum using local, national and international themes that are relevant and purposeful to the children.

Ulverley School provides an active environment with meaningful experiences that nurture and develop creativity, individual talents and interests. We will challenge pupils to become informed critical decision makers and problem solvers with a strong moral sense of right and wrong. We provide opportunities for all children to become confident assertive communicators with the ability to be resilient risk takers.

I am proud of the opportunities the committed staff provides with a full range of before and after school clubs as well as lunchtime activities. These include numerous and varied sports, musical instruments and choir, board games and academic enrichment activities plus many more.

Over the course of this academic year we aim to keep you all informed of our numerous achievements as well as the support structures we have in place which will be led by our dedicated Pastoral team.

We also have a very active Parent Council, Friends fund raisers and Governing Body who are invaluable in strengthening communication and supporting the school in achieving our goals.

Please do not just take my word for it! Look up our last OFSTED report and see how we compare nationally with our Standardised Assessment Tasks (SATs).
