To all Parents
We are a primary school situated south of Derby just off the A50. We have both Infant and Junior departments, also a full-time Nursery. Hilton Primary is a rapidly developing establishment but it will always be our aim to provide a stimulating environment with high standards so that our children will be motivated to achieve their full potential. We are proud of the results we have achieved in the past and intend to build upon these achievements in the future. Our successful Ofstead inspection in 2005 acknowledged the excellent standards and achievements.
Through out the school is a collegiate work pattern for staff and children. All staff plan together with parallel classes within key stages and across the whole curriculum. Together we are working in partnership to deliver the curriculum.
The school is organised in to 3 departments. Foundation stage, Key stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The foundation stage (3-5) is taught in 4 classes including the nursery. The Key stage 1 department (5-7) age range is taught in 9 classes. There are 10 Key stage 2 classes(7-11) range. Additional staff will be appointed to teach children in small groups whilst maintaining the original peer groups as and when this becomes necessary.
Each class is comprised of mixed ability children. Within these classes programs of work are prepared to suit the needs of individuals within the groups. By arranging the work in this way, our aim is to ensure that each child develops at a pace best suited to his/her ability. Where there are 2/3 classes in one age group the children will be taught in parallel classes.
There are lots of different after and in school clubs to join at Hilton primary School. We have netball, football, gymnastics and many others.
The netball and football teams regularly play in matches against other schools. We even go to an all day sporting tournament towards the end of the year, with lots of other teams. If you would like to join a club, then speak to the following teachers for their clubs.
Hilton Primary School Council was set up in 2002/03 It consists of 2 members from each class in each Year group starting at year 1 through to year 6. The children hold democratic elections. They vote at the beginning of the year for their representatives and then vote from the council for the chairperson, vice chairperson secretaries and treasurers. These children are usually selected from our older pupils. The School council is also involved with the "Travel Plan Committee" helping to promote "Walking to School". Future objectives include building on the fruit scheme from the Infant Department and then encouraging Healthy eating throughout the whole School. The A.B.C committee is also connected to the School Council, and aims to stamp out bullying.
