I am proud to welcome you to Hillside Infant School and to our website. We hope that you will find this website helpful whether your child already attends Hillside or if you are considering enrolling them in our rapidly progressing school.
At Hillside Infant School we aim to provide a happy, caring, safe and secure environment for all our pupils. We offer a nurturing and highly supportive atmosphere, and we believe each child is unique. Our staff team work hard to support each child's individual needs. We believe in strong parent partnerships in order for our children to become independent and curious learners and be fully equipped for the next stage of their education.
Following my appointment in September 2016 the school has made good progress on our journey to achieving a ‘good’ outcome at our next inspection. Standards are continuing to rise and recent external monitoring has praised the improvements in the quality of learning and teaching and the behaviour of our pupils. Visitors to our school often comment on the care and welcome they have received.
At Hillside School we encourage every child 'To be the best that they can be'. Our ethos centres around our four key values which are;
Trying our Best Every Day
Kindness and Honesty
Working as a Hillside Team
Using Good Manners
Our priority is to ensure that children have an excellent start to their education and are provided with an exciting curriculum in order reach their full potential and achieve the highest standards possible.
We work closely with parents and provide workshops and regular meetings on how to help children make good progress. We share individual pupil targets and children’s progress is regularly tracked and progress reviewed.
I hope that this website provides you with a range of information about the school, its organisation and aims. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
I look forward to meeting you.
Mrs. Rebecca Fennell
