A Welcome from the Mrs Wesley - our vision, values and ethos



Dear Parents,


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your child/ren to Glen Hills Primary School.


We hope that you find the answers to all of your questions on our website. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.


I have am the Headteacher at Glen Hills Primary School and was the Head of School previously for 4 years and prior to that the Deputy Headteacher. I started at Glen Hills Primary School over 16 year ago as the Assistant headteacher; so I have a good knowledge of the school and the local community.


Our Vision, Values and Ethos




At Glen Hills we are committed to providing all our learners with an enriched curriculum, which provides them with the knowledge, skills, character and Cultural Capital to succeed, as happy life long learners.


We aim to achieve this by:

  • Working as a team comprising of learners, staff, parents/carers, governors, outside agencies and visitors;
  • Valuing the contribution of each individual within that team;
  • Providing an ambitious enjoyable knowledge and skills rich curriculum building on enrichment;
  • Promoting high standards of behaviour and attitudes;
  • Showing and encouraging respect and mutual tolerance for the school community as well as each other;
  • Promoting equality of opportunity regardless of race, religion, gender, social background or ability;
  • Promoting a place where pupil character is developed and personal strengths encouraged;
  • Recognising needs and wellbeing of all to nurture self-worth and develop resilience;
  • By providing a secure environment where all feel valued, celebrated, respected and proud.

As a result of such an environment we hope our children will:

  • Be the best versions of themselves they can be;
  • Become independent, resilient, tolerant and happy self-motivated life-long learners;
  • Have respect for themselves, each other and the environment;
  • Be valued as an individual and as a member of the community, both within school and beyond.


Glen Hills Primary School became a founder member of the Symphony Learning Multi-Academy Trust (SLT) in September 2012.  More information on the SLT can be found here.


Starting school is an exciting time for children and here at Glen Hills, we endeavour to make it as straightforward as possible. We are extremely fortunate to have a committed staff who share the common aim of wanting to give your child the best possible start in life. Not only do we strive to achieve the highest level in literacy, numeracy and an allround education, but we also ensure your children are safe, happy and contribute to our high standards of behaviour.  We link all our learning to Routes to Resilience as consider these our Values - with respect,  resilience, going the extra mile and optimism as key for happy, succcessful Glen Hills' learners. 


Establishing vital links between yourselves and the school is of paramount importance to all at Glen Hills and indeed, we welcome parents into school. If you wish to help in school with craft work, cooking, sewing, after-school clubs or hearing groups of children read, then please contact your son or daughter’s teacher. They will be only too glad of the extra help.


Each term we have parent meetings where we will discuss your child’s progress and at the end of the summer term, we will send you a written report summing up the progress of the year. If, however, you wish to talk about worries you have over your child’s progress then please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.


The hard work and dedication of the staff, governors, parents and pupils is highlighted in our last OFSTED report (October 2018) where the school was judged to be good with outstanding elements and on average, our pupils leave Glen Hills above and well above the national average in all areas.


Finally, may I once again welcome you and your child/ren to Glen Hills Primary School.
