    Published on Tuesday 16th February 2016

    The Mayoress of Northampton visited UMPS on Friday to help us with our balloon launch in aid of Mental Health awareness day. As a TAMHS gold award school we wanted to mark the day in a special way. As well as the balloon launch, in which children from each class released pink balloons from the school playground, we also held a coffee and cake morning and children took part in a range of disccussions and activities around their own mental health and well-being. 


  • Safer Internet Day

    Today children across the school have marked Safer Internet day with a whole day of esafety activities. We started the day with a whole school assembly and ended by inviting parents in to take part in activities the children had designed and made. 


    Thank you to those of you who were able to pop along to the Esafety drop in session in the library after school. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for more pictures of the days activities. 

  • Book appeal.

    Published on Wednesday 20th January 2016

    A book appeal has been launched in Northamptonshire to help flood-hit school children in Yorkshire. 

    Mrs Reeve came up with the fabulous idea and after a few emails and tweets had managed to get her idea off the ground. 

    Books to be donated can be dropped of at central libraries in Northampton, Kettering, Wellingborough and Daventry. 

    At school we have a collection box at the office until Friday 29th January. We would welcome donations of good-quality dictionariesnand fiction and non-fiction books suitable for 3-11 year olds. 

    Many thanks in advance for your support.
