Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Hillcross Primary School! 

Whether you are visiting our website as an existing parent, a potential parent or an interested member of our local community, I am sure you will enjoy finding out a little more about our wonderful school.  

The children, staff and governors are extremely proud of our school!  Our distinctive features include a strong inclusive ethos where children are kept at the heart of all we do.  Our ‘Thinking School’ status and child centred approach to teaching and learning encourages and supports children to become enthusiastic, positive and resilient learners.  We have a clear focus on raising standards in all aspects of the curriculum by inspiring children in their learning whilst also ensuring children develop the personal and social skills they need to be successful in life.  

Visitors to the school comment on the warm and positive atmosphere and take pleasure from the children’s enthusiasm for learning, their excellent behaviour and friendliness. 

We have an excellent team of outstanding, experienced staff who are fully committed to working in partnership with families and the local community to ensure that every child in the school is happy, secure and achieves success in both their learning and personal achievements .  

We believe full partnership with all members of our community is the best way to ensure success for our children and therefore encourage others to engage in school life.  For parents, there are a range of opportunities for you to get involved in including parent workshops, membership of the PTA, attending performances, volunteering in school and accompanying classes on school trips.  We have already developed close links with many members of the local community but always welcome more.  

This is an exciting time for the school as we continue to expand to three forms of entry (we are currently three forms of entry from Reception to Year 4) and to implement the many changes taking place across the educational landscape.  Visits to the school are encouraged.  Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.

I look forward to meeting you.
