You should try to aim for a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity every day which could be anything from going for a walk, playing in the garden, going for a bike ride or doing a workout etc.

Mr Wright - Sports Lead

School Sports Leaders

At Hiltingbury, we have an enthusiastic group of Sports Leaders from across the school who are keen to improve P.E, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) across the school. Sports Leaders apply at the start of each academic year by writing a letter of application stating why they think they would make an excellent candidate for the job and most importantly, why they want to be one!

Sports Leaders help to organise and lead events such as Sports Day, Inter-house Sports and give opinions on what they would like our PE and sport provision at Hiltingbury to offer in the future.

In addition, our Sports Leaders lead playground games and activities each lunchtime for children to enjoy, increasing the amount of physical activity they are doing.  They lead games and also look after the P.E equipment.  This role develops important values such as friendship, respect and kindness as well as building their confidence and communication skills throughout the year.

The children play an invaluable role in promoting a healthy lifestyle amongst their peers and are keen to support their peers in getting enough physical activity.

Our Sports Leaders are:

  • Passionate
  • Considerate
  • Kind
  • Respectful
  • Inclusive
  • Creative
  • Motivated

What our Sports Leaders say about the role:

“I enjoy spreading my love of sport with other children.”

“We love finding new, creative games for children to play and enjoy.”

“The role has helped give me more confidence.”

Football Success!

Hiltingbury's boys team played their first fixture in the Winchester Inter-School Football League on Friday 15th October away at Western Primary School. A fantastic start to the season saw Hiltingbury emerge victorious in a 9-1 win! Well done boys on a fantastic result. The girls have their first match of the season too on Monday 18th October.

How you can support us

  • Ensure your child is always present with the correct PE kit (Hiltingbury shirt, shorts, jumper and trousers are allowed in the winter). Regardless of the timetabled day, kit should come in on a Monday and go home (to be washed) on a Friday. Having a kit in all week allows greater flexibility with weather and other aspects that could lead to a change in timetable.


  • Encourage your child to be physically active outside of school. Whether that is through joining a sporting club, running or some other form of physical exercise. Establishing this good practice early will help them to make physical activity part of their daily/weekly routine and help them to live healthier lifestyles.


  • Volunteer to help with a school club – this will enable the school to offer a wider range of clubs for the children to attend.
  • Always share any sporting successes outside of school so we can celebrate them in school too e.g. scoring a hat-trick in a weekend football match or achieving a belt in karate or moving up a lane in swimming. We love to hear about these sporting successes and will celebrate them in Friday's Celebration Assembly.
