Key Information

Water Bottles & Snacks

Children must bring a water bottle to school because water fountains will not be available for children to use whilst safety measures are in place. Hillcross School water bottles are compulsory. Children should have a water bottle with a lid that matches their house colour. These should contain water only. School water bottles will be available for purchase via Parentmail. A payment item has been set for all families if you need to purchase a bottle, please indicate the quantity you require and which house your child/ren are in. From Thursday 3rd September to Monday 14th September we will review this payment item daily so that we can send water bottles home within 24 hours of ordering. After this date, we will view this once a week. The cost of a water bottle is £1.50 and each additional lid is 50p.

In Year 2, children are provided with a piece of fruit as part of the government school fruit and vegetable scheme. Please do not provide your child with any additional snacks. 

PE Kit                                                                                                                                         

Children should bring a pair of plimsolls or indoor trainers into school in their PE bag. These will be kept in school for the whole term, unless the shoes become too small and we will send them home earlier.

Team Cedar will have PE every Wednesday & Friday and Team Yew will have PE on a Tuesday & Wednesday.                                                  

Children will need to wear their full PE Kit to school on these days and bring their school shoes (and a change of socks in case they get muddy) with them in a plastic carrier bag. This is so that if they get muddy they can change into their school shoes without walking mud throughout the school. Please be mindful of the weather and choose the most appropriate PE kit (tracksuit bottoms in winder and shorts in summer). Children will wear their PE kits home.
