Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Hillside Primary School website.  It is my privilege to be Headteacher of this vibrant and diverse school community of approximately 600 pupils, including our fantastic Nursery.  Our well resourced Nursery and Reception classes provide children with a good range of activities, indoor and outdoor, to develop good learning behaviours for their future.
 

Our team of dedicated staff believe that children achieve their best in a safe, secure and happy school community and we work hard to make sure this is the case for our learners every day.  I am very pleased that our recent Ofsted inspection  recognised this: “Pupils feel very safe in school and appreciate the support that is provided by their teachers and support staff”.  Please take a look at our school values so you can understand more about our school’s logo (the Inukshuk) and what it represents.
 

We strongly believe that good relationships between people in our school community are essential in securing success for your child, as such, an effective partnership between home and school will benefit your child’s learning.  Where parents engage with their child’s learning and what school has to offer, we know that children make better learning progress.  “....parents are positive about the work of the school and say children feel happy and safe” (Ofsted ‘17)
 

There are a range of exciting, enriching learning opportunities for Hillside pupils both within our broad, thematic curriculum and in our extra curricular clubs. We are very pleased to have these acknowledged when we received Silver Awards for Music, Sport and EcoClub in 2017.
 

I hope you find our website useful in giving you the information you need.  Please come and visit our school, you will always receive a warm welcome from our pupils and our staff.
 

Mr Lee Abbott
