"Children achieve well at Hillview Nursery School. Staff plan activities carefully and review these activities to respond to children’s interests. Children with SEND receive excellent support" Ofsted 2019

Ofsted are responsible for assessing and maintaining standards of education for all providers of childcare from childminders to secondary school provision.  

We are delighted to have received our 3rd 'Good' Ofsted report in 2019. 

Again, the inspectors recognise the tireless hard work and dedication of our staff, as well as the caring and supportive ethos that makes Hillview such a rich learning environment. It is most gratifying to read that “children love coming to this happy nursery school“ where “expectations for children’s learning are high” and where “children are doing more and learning more about the world”.

We are particularly proud that “children with special educational needs and/or disabilities are fully included”, and “all the children play happily together”.

Of course, we are always looking to improve and an effective action plan is already underway to implement the next steps forward for the school.
