Supply Teachers

If you are interested in doing supply work at Hill View please make an appointment to visit the school.


Welcome to Hill View Primary School’s web site. We hope you find it useful and informative. The intention is to give you a flavour of our school.

Hill View Primary School is a thriving and developing primary school situated in the North Oxfordshire market town of Banbury. We offer our pupils a stimulating and creative curriculum in a positive and nurturing environment. The school has an excellent range of indoor and outdoor facilities and benefits from the leadership of enthusiastic and committed staff.

At Hill View we place children at the centre of all we do and each child is valued and treated as an individual.

As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see Hill View Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01295 251205 to arrange a visit.

Our Vision Statement

At Hill View School we recognise the potential of each individual and the importance of nurturing and developing every aspect of his or her personality. Strong leadership, teamwork and mutual support are central to inspiring lifelong learners.

Hill View School’s Golden Rules underpin our values and expectations and are an integral part of daily life in school.

  • Do be kind and helpful
  • Do be gentle
  • Do listen to people
  • Do be honest
  • Do look after property
  • Do work hard

We value and celebrate successes in behaviour, attitude and learning. As a school community, we recognise that every individual has the right to feel safe and confident to grasp new challenges.

We aim to promote honesty, mutual respect, equality, compassion and self-belief by creating a positive learning environment. We strive to be an e-confident school, equipping our children for the future. Hill View School also instils a healthy lifestyle through sport and an understanding of healthy eating and emotional well-being.

We deliver an exciting curriculum designed to meet the needs of today’s children and prepare them to contribute positively to both the local and global communities.

We recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and carers, and strive to maintain open communication. Inclusion, enjoyment and fun are central to the life of Hill View School. Everyone is valued, and no one is left behind.
