Ethos and Values

A positive ethos and culture is central to the successful delivery of our excellent curriculum and our ambition that every child learns to read as quickly as possible.

At Hill View we have an ethos and culture which promotes positive relationships and behaviour. This cannot, however, be delivered without strong school leadership, which is authoritative and distributive in nature.

We appreciate all staff have a role to play in demonstrating the value of strong relationships. To be flexible, reflective and confident to deliver approaches that will support the individual needs of children at Hill View.

At Hill View we take every opportunity to engage directly with parents and carers to foster a positive and inclusive environment. Parents and carers are encouraged to work in partnership with the school to develop consistent messages.

Children's wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do and with the aim of getting it right for every child. This means focusing on the wellbeing of every child to ensure they are safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included.

It is through this reflective and thoughtful approach that we aim to improve children’s knowledge, awareness, understanding and respect for diversity. Throughout our challenge curriculum pupils are asked to reflect on their roles as emerging citizens and engage critically with stereotypes and prejudices. Throughout the curriculum opportunities are presented that prepare pupils to function in an ever increasing diverse society.
