Pupil Voice Interview
Butler’s Hill Infant and Nursery school is located in Hucknall, Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. The school location has long been identified nationally as an area of low social deprivation.
We firmly believe in our school ethos of 'Dream Big, Aim High' and we believe this is the right of all children. Our intention is that all pupils; irrespective of background or the challenges they face, make good progress across the curriculum. Cultural capital is a key aspect of our strategy and is it is our responsibility to ensure our children receive engaging experiences and activities that will bridge some of the gaps that exist due to their personal experiences this (includes after school activities, enrichment and experiential learning). We aim to equip our children with the knowledge needed to be effective citizens within our local and global community.
