Upperby Primary School 

Upperby Primary is a large (and growing) primary school of 400 plus pupils ranging from Nursery through to Year 6. On the outskirts of Carlisle, the school stands in the local community of Upperby. This embraces everything we do at our school and is embedded firmly in our school ethos and in the education, care and support we provide for our children and families.  

Upperby Primary School is fully committed to every child receiving the very best education and to ensuring that all pupils reach their full potential. In order to achieve this, teachers aim to deliver outstanding lessons and the school rightly has high expectations of its pupils. We expect all members of the school community to behave well, work hard, achieve high standards appropriate to their learning abilities, show respect for one another and to ensure that Upperby Primary School is a positive and safe place to be. 

Our school is also seen as a school family, with all members caring and looking out for one another. This analogy is often referred to in assemblies and promotes the qualities of friendship, empathy, respect, tolerance and kindness which help shape our citizens of the future, of whom we hope we can be very proud.
