A school where autistic pupils can learn to their full potential in a fun, safe and inclusive, environment.


1. Respect – Every member of the Hillside Community is always respectful to others, regardless of who they are.

2. Nurture – Hillside is a nurturing environment which will help every pupil to do the best they can in a safe and caring way.

3. Responsibility - Everyone at Hillside takes responsibility for themselves in every way they can to be the best they can.

4. Creativity – Hillside has an ambitiously creative curriculum to support pupils to achieve their very best.

5. Individuality – Hillside pupils are encouraged to embrace their individuality and are supported to understand their Autism by staff and parents who advocate for them


In five years time we will be:

· A Centre of Excellence for Autism provision in Lancashire

· We will have expanded our provision and outreach as a specialist Autism school

· We will have a curriculum that is creative and adaptive with personalised pathways for all pupils

· Our pupils are fully prepared to succeed in whatever environment or placement they move on to in their next stage in life

· Our staff are highly skilled, and leading practitioners in supporting pupils to understand their own individual needs, developing resilience and the ability to self-regulate.
