Sports Funding 2019-2020


Physical Education and Sport play a very important part in the life of our school. We believe that PE and Sport contributes to the holistic development of young people at Hillocks and are learning more about our school values. We believe that our sport provision provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing (integrity). Children are recognising that anything is possible through engaging in a high quality sporting experience and are enthusiastic about improving their personal best (Resilience).

The results of the provision at Hillocks is evident when viewing the participation and medal tables on the School Games Programmes. Pupils at Hillocks have also achieved the Silver Award in summer 2018 and retained it in summer 2019. Our pupils, families and staff are very proud of our sporting achievements raising the profile of Hillocks Primary School.

Sophie Dunn & Mark Dobb are currently updating the Sports Funding plan. Most classes are now active for 30 minutes a day as part of the government initiative (engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity). The PTA have kindly offered to purchase a number of emblem t-shirts for after inter sporting events. We run a variety of well-attended afterschool clubs as well as competing in regular school games competitions.

The Government have announced new funding for Physical Education and Sport. The funding is assigned to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding of £16,000 plus £10.00 per pupil is allocated to every primary school. Hillocks Primary School will receive approximately £18,744 in the academic year 2019/20.
