During their time at Hillocks Primary Academy, there may be a number of reasons why children need some extra help and support. The reasons for this will vary – it could be homework, understanding a topic within a lesson, problems with friends or family, or that they’re worried about something inside or outside of the academy.

Any child can raise their concerns with any member of staff who will be able to help or pass this on to the most relevant person.


If this is a safeguarding issue, Mrs Newcombe, Mr Gascoyne, Mrs Adams or Mrs Meeson are our designated safeguarding leads, but all staff can support and signpost this. Please also refer to our safeguarding page here.


We take any request for help seriously and put in place measures to provide extra support where necessary.
