Family Forum

Each term we hold a supportive group meeting for our families. We invite our pupils’ family members in to school to listen to visiting professionals share information that may be useful. This is also an opportunity for you to meet informally and have a chat, share ideas and experiences with other parents and carers, in addition to providing valuable feedback for service providers. All parents, carers and family members are welcome and refreshments will be provided.

As a result of discussions at Family Forum meetings and Headteacher Surgery meetings we have made improvements, some of these are detailed below in our ‘You Said, We Did’ section:


You said… you would like Hillside pupils to have access to a wheelchair accessible swing

We…, in conjunction with external fundraisers and The Parents and Friends of Hillside, raised sufficient funds to have a wheelchair accessible swing installed in our playground


You said… you had difficulty seeing some of the pupils in our school events and performances

We… have purchased staging for use at future events


You said… you would like school photos taken earlier so they can be used as Christmas presents

We… contacted our photographers and got them in early, in time for Christmas!
