Hill View Infant Academy

Believe and Achieve

Welcome to Our School

The purpose of this website is to introduce you to Hill View Infant Academy and to provide information you may find useful. We are part of a MAT (Multi-Academy Trust) with Hill View Junior Academy.

As our reputation and OFSTED reports (2001 and 2007) fully endorse, we have many strengths. These include very high standards of teaching throughout the school, demanding expectations of children’s achievements and behaviour. In addition to this we firmly believe in providing all children with a wide range of opportunities, sporting, musical, cultural, recreational and social. We offer extended care for both nursery and school children from 8.00am to 6.00pm. 

Our aim is to provide each child with an education that will equip them to become responsible citizens, to make informed choices having both self respect and respect for others. To achieve this we provide an extensive range of opportunities beyond the school day, in a caring and safe atmosphere.
Please enjoy browsing our website where you will find much more about the life of our school.

Kind regards

Claire Smith

Hill View Infant Academy News

  • On Wednesday 18th April, a team from Sunderland People First came in to HVI and spent the afternoon working on a special project about celebrating difference with our Anti Bullying Crew.
  • An extra special assembly took place on Monday to celebrate a whopping 66 children who have achieved 100% attendance over autumn and spring terms.
  • Year 1 children had a special visit from the young champions at Southmoor Academy on Wednesday. They talked to our children about anti-bullying and how to stop a bully.
  • We want to say a very big thank you to everyone who brought resources in to school to help set up our OPAL playground.
  • Please can we ask that if any parent/carer is entitled to Free School Meals, it would benefit the school if you made us aware. Although every child is now entitled to a free meal the school STILL receive funds for your child if entitled.
