Welcome to our Governors’ section.



A message from our Chair of Governors:


Welcome to the Governors page of the Hillside Infants School website. 


The governors of this school want every child who comes here to have the best educational start possible. It is in the family and in the infants school that the foundations for all future learning are laid. Parents have an extremely important role to play and the staff in the school will want to learn about your child and to hear how best they can support and enable them to learn. Your child’s progress will be dependent upon this cooperation.


The school staff team, teachers and support staff, the Governing Body and parents need to give young children consistent care and reinforce behaviours which allow them and others to learn. Your child’s health and happiness are important to us all.


The Governing Body wants every child to feel secure and able to learn. Our role is to support the Head teacher, leadership team and staff to create an environment where this can happen. The school has an open door policy and the Head teacher, staff and governors are available to discuss any concerns you may have.


Thank you for entrusting your child to our care. We will do our best to ensure that they enjoy school and make excellent progress.
