Hello! My name is Mrs Karen Mackenzie, Headteacher at Hilltop Infant School. I am delighted that you have managed to find our website and hope that you will be able to find all the information you need about our school. If you would like to ask any questions or would like any further details please contact the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact me directly at
Hilltop Infant School is a school for 4-7 year old children in Wickford, Essex. We have a wonderful team of staff, active and informed governors and supportive families who all help the children to be safe and happy and to make exceptional progress. It is our aim to make sure that all members of our school community are supported and feel included and valued. Further information about Equalities, Pupil Premium and Special Educational Needs are available on this site.
We are always looking to improve our provision in school and our School Development Plan details the areas where we are focusing on making improvement. As well as delivering all aspects of the National Curriculum, we also extend provision in many areas. We currently hold The Artsmark Award, The ICT Mark, The International Schools Award, The Active Mark and Healthy Schools Status. Hilltop Infant School also has a School Council and an Eco-Committee and we are part of the Let’s Get Cooking Project.
Starting school is an exciting and important stage in a child's development and we work hard to make it a happy and positive experience. Families are welcome to visit the school during one of our Open Mornings or at other times by appointment. Our staff also liaise with pre-school settings, parents and carers and make home visits for new families who would like one.
We share a site with Hilltop Junior School and most of our children move there when they reach Year 3. We work alongside the Junior staff to make transition as smooth as possible for all children.
If you would like to find out more about our outstanding school please telephone the school office on 01268 762531, and make an appointment to come and meet me and have a look around.
