OFSTED July 2022
"Children at Hill View get off to a flying start in nursery. Staff have high expectations of them, quickly establishing routines and building up their social skills. There are excellent relationships between children, families and staff."
"Pupils are well behaved and feel safe in school."
"The school excels in personal and social education (PSED). A specially trained member of staff provides support for pupils and families who need it. This has helped to improve the attendance of some pupils. There are many after-school clubs catering for a broad range of interests and talents."
"Leaders have ambitious curriculum goals and have identified the core knowledge and skills that they want pupils to learn in all subject areas. Careful consideration is given to the way the curriculum is taught. Leaders have shaped a creative, crosscurricular topic approach, with high-quality learning through play. Staff include pupils’ interests in the curriculum to make the learning more relevant to them. Leaders regard the school as ‘early years throughout’"
"Pupils have positive attitudes to learning, they enjoy coming to school and attendance is high."
"Leaders have made reading a high priority. A love of reading is fostered through storytelling and the imaginative reading areas in each class. A structured phonics programme is in place from Reception onwards."
"PSED is an absolute strength of the school."
"Pupils proudly take on leadership roles and grow in self-confidence."
"Governors and trustees have a wide skillset and have a strong strategic vision for the school."
