The Hilltop Governing Body

The school’s Governing Body has a vital role to play at Hilltop.

Hilltop’s vision is

…to create and maintain a school that gives its children the best possible outcomes they can have.

And the Governing Body works with the school’s Headteacher and her Leadership Team to make sure that Hilltop is exactly that!

The Governing Body carries out three roles at Hilltop:

1. It sets the strategic direction of the school, ensuring that this is in line with the school’s vision, its ethos and the STRETCH values.

2. It holds the Headteacher and her Leadership Team to account for the quality of provision at Hilltop; to make sure that every child receives the best possible teaching, learns in a nurturing and exciting environment… and is making excellent progress in their education as a result.

3. It monitors the school’s academic and financial performance, to ensure that the provision Hilltop offers is resulting in the children attaining well, compared to their peers across the country, and that the school is making the best use of the money in its budget.

There are 10 Hilltop governors, and they come from right across the school and wider community; some are elected by the parents and staff of Hilltop and some are chosen by the Borough or by the Governing Body itself.  Individually they have wide-ranging skills  which the Governing Body uses to carry out its work effectively. Collectively, what they all share is a strong commitment to the school and the children of Hilltop.
