School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. As headteacher, you have worked tirelessly to maintain the good quality of education in the school. You are passionate to ‘get it right’ for every child. Governors and senior leaders share this commitment and you all strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children and young people at Hilltop School. Pupils work hard in lessons and, despite their difficulties, are determined to complete tasks and to do their best. This is because teachers plan interesting learning activities and effectively support them with their work. Pupils told inspectors that staff help them when they need it and were full of praise for the guidance they received from staff. Inspectors identified several areas for improvement at the school’s last inspection. These were to improve the attendance of a small group of pupils and to ensure that all teaching is as good as the best. They asked leaders to check that all staff support pupils’ learning, that learning tasks are matched to pupils’ needs and that all pupils receive feedback on their achievements. You have tackled these areas for improvement well. Pupils’ attendance has risen over the last three years, and most non-attendance now is because pupils are too ill to come to school. Teaching assistants know pupils’ targets and support pupils well in achieving them. This is because teachers have set clear learning targets based on their assessment of pupils.
