Dear Parents/ Carers,


On behalf of the Governing Body I am delighted to share with you the official report from our recent Ofsted inspection of 15 March 2016.


Our school continues to be “good” and this judgement is rightly deserved by Ms Orbell and her excellent team. Under Ms Orbell’s leadership Hillview has embraced key structural changes since the previous inspection and the inspector recognised the tireless hard work, commitment and dedication the whole school has shown on developing the quality of teaching and learning.


What is particularly pleasing to read is that the school’s “inclusive ethos promotes a harmonious and calm environment” and that “the school is successful in developing confident, highly motivated and caring learners”.  Additionally, the inspector acknowledged that “communication and language, reading and writing have a high profile throughout the Nursery”.


Of course, we are always looking to improve and we are carefully considering the report’s suggestions.


At this point in time however, I am sure you will join me in congratulating Ms Orbell and all the staff for the great efforts that they have made in sustaining and improving the school in so many ways.  This report is testimony to all that they continue to do.  


Most importantly, I would like to thank you as parents for your continued support and for establishing such a strong partnership with Hillview Nursery.


It is a great privilege for me to serve as Chair of Governors in a school that has so much to offer.


Yours sincerely,


Claudia Calogero
