Message from Mr Morris

It is a privilege to be Headteacher of Hillside Primary School, a happy, friendly school in the heart of the community with high aspirations for every one of our children.

We take very seriously the responsibility we all have in ensuring the highest standards of safety, teaching, learning and pastoral care for your children. All children should feel safe, included, respected and valued, enabling each to maximise their academic, creative, personal, physical, and moral potential. We are committed to providing an environment where the highest levels of these aims are achieved for each of our children.

The school is engaged in a process of ongoing evaluation and improvement of all aspects of provision with the aim of providing the very best teaching, support and outcomes for your children.

We believe who children are, and who they become, is just as important as what they achieve or attain. To that end, we seek to develop character so children are able to learn successfully. We are committed to developing determination and effort in order to achieve, and support children in building and maintaining strong, healthy relationships. Our ethos is based around respecting ourselves, others and our world.

The development of resilience, determination and strong relationships are promoted through all areas of the curriculum. We believe our thematic curriculum encourages our children to learn for themselves, promoting investigation, curiosity and problem solving. We choose themes that excite our learners and ensure many enrichment activities are built into school life and shared with parents. 

Our school has many excellent qualities which make it a favourable choice. Our extensive facilities include a well-stocked library, ICT Suite, an art studio, a forest school, gardening areas and much more. We are proud to offer provision for two year old children and quality wrap-around care: Breakfast Club in the morning and Firbobs into the early evening.

Thank you for your continued commitment and support towards the staff and pupils of this school. We are united by mutual support and the common aim of seeing our children and school happy and successful.

We can be very proud of Hillside Primary School and all we achieve together.

Mr S. Morris
