Hilltop First School and Foundation Stage

Governor Information

The Hilltop Governing Body

 

The Governing Body works with the school’s Headteacher and her Leadership Team to make sure that Hilltop lives up to its mission 

…to create and maintain a school that gives its children the best possible outcomes.

 

The Governing Body carries out three roles at Hilltop:

  • Set the strategic direction of the school, ensuring that this is in line with the school’s vision, its ethos and values.
  • Holds the Headteacher and her Leadership Team to account for the quality of provision at Hilltop; to make sure that every child receives the best possible teaching, learns in a nurturing and exciting environment and is making excellent progress in their education as a result.
  • Monitor the school’s academic and financial performance, to ensure that the provision offered by Hilltop results in the children attaining well, compared to their peers across the country, and that the school is making the best use of the money in its budget.
     

Hilltop governors come from right across the school and wider community.  We have three governors currently elected by the parents, one governor elected by the staff of Hilltop, one elected by the Local Authority and four Co-Opted governors elected by the Governing Board itself and the Headteacher.  Individually they have wide-ranging skills which the Governing Board uses to carry out its work effectively, as outlined below. Collectively, what they all share is a strong commitment to the school and the children of Hilltop.

 

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES - reviewed and updated Autumn 2023

  1. To become the school of choice in the heart of our community.
  2. To develop a rich, relevant and ambitious curriculum that supports children’s learning at all stages.
  3. To enhance the indoor and outdoor learning environments to support the values of the school.
  4. To grow high quality teachers to become leaders who can share good practice beyond our school.
  5. To continue to ensure that pupils, staff, parents and carers experience a sense of belonging within the school.
