Upton Cross Primary School

Upton Cross Primary School is now closed.

We are currently not sure when we'll re-open but we will keep you updated on this page. Further information has and will be sent out on ParentMail when available.  

Learning@home is now live on year group pages, follow this link or select your year group from the Quick Links on the left. These will continue to be updated until we return to school. Keep coming back to see if you have another challenge. 

New School Starters September 2020

Due to the current situation, we are unfortunately unable to offer any further information on arrangements for the new intake. You will shortly be receiving correspondence from us, but in the meantime, we hope you find our website useful. We kindly ask that you do not phone the school at this time, as we are unable to answer any queries.

We look forward to meeting you soon. 

Update from Newham

Please keep checking here for information from the council on how they are supporting families, especially the most vulnerable. They are aware that some families are struggling with regards accessing certain items and the Council are putting in place distribution hubs in East Ham and Manor Park. More information can be found at

Our Provision

Whilst we remain open for the childcare of critical workers and key children, we are planning for the possibility of a phased return to school for our Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 in June. We ask our families to complete the survey sent out this week ASAP so that we can better understand your thoughts and intentions.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our children, families and staff is our paramount concern. We would like to categorically reassure you that the decisions we make will be guided by this primary consideration.

For those of you who are due to start at Upton Cross in September, you are in our thoughts and we will make proper contact with you when the time is right for all of us.

Please email if you need support with childcare and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Be well, be kind, be smart, be alert and be safe.


We will regularly be updating our websites with ideas and projects which you can encourage your children to do at home, but you should feel under no obligation to complete any of them within a particular time period. We are aware that you are parents and not educators and that you may well be overwhelmed by the prospect of supporting your child’s learning over the next few weeks. We aim to be there for you and hope to develop ways for you to receive help and guidance from teachers from our school and across the Learning in Harmony Trust. 

Thank you for your support,


Kind regards

Charlotte Moore 

Head of School
