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.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
