The journey

Location: Hillvue Rd, Tamworth

Level: Primary School, Kinder to Year 6

Enrolment: 292 (78% of our students are from an Aboriginal background)

Hillvue Public School is located in Tamworth and is part of the Connected Communities Strategy. Our school has an enrolment of 315 and 78% of our students are from an Aboriginal background. The development and implementation of programs that cater for the needs of students from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and low socio-economic backgrounds is a priority.

We have a genuine focus on our learners and on the provision of a diverse and exciting curriculum supported by two instructional leaders and quality classroom teaching in differentiated learning environments. The design of our differentiated learning environments and innovative organisational structures across the school enables the sharing of teacher expertise and a consistency in teacher-student and student-student relationships.

At Hillvue Public School, we are demonstrating success in the development and implementation of research informed and innovative learning and teaching to ensure that student learning is maximised. Our collaborative, sustained and evidence based approach to professional learning continues to support teacher practice and improve outcomes for our students.

A shared vision for high impact learning and teaching and a cohesive organisational culture is resulting in growth in literacy and numeracy achievement and a significant increase in student engagement.

Student success in learning is the only option at our school. The high expectations held by our team and our sense of collective efficacy is fundamental to our ultimate goal of achieving improved outcomes for our students and families.
