Daniel Upfield has been acting head teacher of Colville Primary School, Kensington and Chelsea since early 2009, having joined the school in 2007 as deputy headteacher and led on curriculum and assessment across the primary age range. Since his appointment as acting head he has taken on full responsibility for the management of the school and it has gone from strength to strength, as recognised by Ofsted and by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea presenting him with the Borough’s Superstar Staff Award for leadership this Monday (29 November).
Daniel started his teaching career in Southwark, as a class teacher and subject leader. He was quickly promoted and moved on to become leader of Key Stage 2 in a 'Fresh Start’ primary school in Northolt where he also became an Advanced Skills Teacher and took on an advisory role across the Borough.
ARK Director of Primary Education, Sophy Blakeway said:
“We’re delighted to appoint Daniel Upfield as the founding head for ARK Atwood Primary. He has made a huge contribution to Colville Primary and I know he will be a talented and committed leader for our new primary school in Westminster. We want to create an outstanding school to give north Westminster pupils an excellent start to their school career. We’ve met many enthusiastic parents who are looking for school places for 2011 and we hope to welcome many more at our parent information meetings.”
Daniel Upfield said:
“Every teacher dreams of starting a school so this is a great opportunity to create a school whose standards and direction is clear from the first day. I’m really pleased to be joining the ARK Schools team, who have shown their commitment to excellence and helping children succeed in schools across London. Over the next few months we’ll be completing our teaching team and our curriculum so that we can welcome our first reception pupils to a truly exceptional school in September.”
