Safety of Pupils in School

Door locks have been modified to allow access from inside only. After 9.00 a.m., parents and visitors must enter by the school office entrance.


Smoking is banned from the entire school site, in accordance with the law.

No Dogs on Site

In view of the obvious health hazard, and the fact that some children are genuinely frightened, you are asked not to bring dogs on to school grounds.

Parents’ Cars

Parents’ cars, taxis and other unauthorised vehicles are not permitted on the driveway, cross-hatchings, zig-zag lines, or inside the school gates.

Parking Outside School

Parking on the keep clear markings or hatchings outside school is a traffic offence and offending drivers can be fined on the spot. Please be aware of children’s safety and the needs of our neighbours when parking in the street.


At Hillborough Infant and Nursery School, as part of our wish to promote healthy eating, we have decided not to give out birthday sweets.

We appreciate your support with this.
