I am very excited because we have a brand new editing team who are going to be updating our blog with a new design and lots of new pages. They are hoping to include the rest of the school in many aspects of the blog. So welcome to Niamh, Olivia, Ross and Toby our new editors for Upton Cross.
We are a rural school in deepest darkest Cornwall (Upton Cross, Nr. Liskeard). We are a small school of approximately 85 pupils and we have a large staff of teachers, teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors, secretaries, helpful parents and friends ….. oh and the Headteacher! The children of Class 4 started a new adventure last year creating an on-line diary of their activities, experiences and events, not only in their class but throughout the school. Each week a group of Year 5/6 pupils will write a diary entry and upload photographs and samples of work. We are a school that is very involved in Education for Sustainable Development and Global Education. We have several awards including Healthy Schools and Eco Status. We have friends around the world in India, Spain and Africa and contacts in America and we were recently at the Teaching Awards representing Sustainable Schools in the South West region. We are a school that hopes to prepare children for a bright future.
