Welcome to Our School

Headteacher's Welcome


Dear Parents and Carers


On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to Hillmead Primary School and Nursery.  I hope that our website gives you an insight into the learning that takes place in our school and the values and visions which underpin it.


As the Headteacher of Hillmead Primary I am fully committed to ensuring our school serves our local children and their families in a supportive and nurturing environment.  Our aim is to build relationships which are rooted in mutual trust and respect.


Our dedicated and talented staff provide exceptional care for the children - combined with our high standards, expectations and aspirations - children at Hillmead make good progress on achieving and realising their potential.  We are keen and proud to celebrate all the achievements and successes of our pupils both academically and also in wider interests such as sport and music.


Ensuring that our curriculum is rich and varied remains amongst our highest priorities.  We strive to provide a wide range of experiences which broaden horizons and challenge all along the way.  We want our children to be resilient and approach all aspects of their lives with determination, perseverance and joy.


In all we do at Hillmead, our expectations are clear, our standards high and our aspirations limitless.


I hope you find our website useful and informative and that it gives you a flavour and some insight into our school, our pupils and the high quality education we strive to provide.


Mrs Michelle Shenston


Our Vision


Education means so much more than just achieving good examination results; we believe that there is a whole range of qualities and skills which one must acquire and nurture to thrive in an increasingly challenging world.


Our Vision is to inspire pupils to become life-long learners who are inquisitive, have a thirst for knowledge and are ready to face the challenges of a modern world.


We aim to do this through providing a stimulating, caring and safe environment for our pupils, to ensure that every child achieves their full potential and matures into a well- rounded individual.


We believe in promoting:   

      The WHole Child


                                     Love for Learning
