Physical Education at Hillocks!

Physical Education at Hillocks!

At Hillocks, we are so lucky because we have Mark Dobb & Miss Dunn helping to deliver the PE curriculum across all key stages and organising lots of extra-curricular activities.

All children should have their PE kit in school at all times.

PE Kit at Hillocks consists of:

  • Shorts or Jogging bottoms

  • T-shirt/Polo

  • Plimsolls/trainers

  • A suitable sports jumper/jacket

Children should NOT wear any jewellery during PE lessons and should be removed before your child comes to school (staff are not permitted to put earrings in for children).

In the Summer we often increase the amount of outdoor PE taught, it is therefore so important that children apply and wear sun cream to protect them. 

KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity of swimming lessons during the year, your children will given a letter to confirm when their lessons are. Swimming takes place at Lammas Leisure Centre on Tuesday afternoons.

If your child is unable to take part in PE lessons for medical reasons then a letter should be sent with them to school. 


In order to review and improve sports opportunities for children at Hillocks, Miss Dunn & Mark Dobb are asking for parents and carers to do this simple online questionnaire with their children. It’s all multiple choice answers and literally takes a couple of minutes- the link is below.

We have a few cases on Scarlet Fever in school.  Click on link below to see the Publich Health notice for frequently asked questions, so if you think your child has this you can take them straight to the doctors.  Once they have started taking the antibiotics they can return to school in 24 hours.

Just a reminder that the next INSET DAYS are 25th and 26th June so school will be closed

5/6 INDOOR ROWING- 8/2/8

What a fantastic evening last night! The atmosphere was incredible and very competitive. Our amazing rowing team came 5th overall, rowing a total of 5497 m which is just over 3.4 miles. They all did extremely well and this effort and team spirt has qualified us for the finals in March.
