General Information


When are our PE days?

Kingfishers have P.E every Monday and Tuesday.


What do I need to bring to school?

Everyday children need to bring their bookbag, reading book and reading record.


Children need to bring in their spelling and homework folders by Wednesday each week.


If I have any concerns or problems who can I speak to?

Your first point of contact is your child's class teacher.  Please speak to them to arrange a mutually suitable time to discuss your concerns.  We ask if you'd like to speak to us at the end of the school day you wait for all children to be dismissed so our full attention can be given.

Parents evening are held once a term for you to discuss your child's progress.

At Hillshott Infant and Nursery school we follow the PenPals handwriting scheme. Our younger children are introduced to four main characters which help them to memorise the sequence for writing each letter correctly. The key thing to remember is that all letters start from the top
(apart from d and e).


Pattern practice and ‘play’ writing are an important part of handwriting development. Your child will be practicing letter formation in a number of exciting ways: in sand, using paint, in the air, on the interactive television screens and iPads, as well as on paper with a pencil!
