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.

Wheelchair Sports

We were delighted to welcome Ian from Express Sport’s Coaching into school on Thursday 24th May.

He brought along a set of sports wheelchairs which the entire of KS2 had the opportunity to have a go on and take part in some activities.

As you can imagine, the children loved it, as did Mrs Adams! Take a look at a couple of photos from the day.

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.
