It’s Parents Evening tomorrow (Thursday) and our Book Fair will be running throughout. Come and browse through on your way in or out and see what amazing books you can discover! The fair will be open from 3.30pm until late.
Grab something amazing and support HPS at the same time – a portion of sales goes towards our school fund.
For those of you not able to make it tomorrow we’ll be running the book fair for a short session around the end of school on Friday and Monday: 2.50pm – 3.30pm on both days.
The children in year two are planning to hold an ‘eggsciting’ Easter Egg Chocolate Tombola and raffle on Wednesday 3rd April and Thursday 4th April 2019 for the pupils of HPS.
We are hosting this event in order to raise money for our chosen charity East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH). EACH is a fantastic local charity that helps provide support and care for children and families.
Prior to this, we would love it if you could send in some chocolate donations to help us create as many Tombola prizes as possible in order to raise money for this tremendous charity.

Our e-safety session for parents, which was due to happen today, has been cancelled due to a lack of interest.
This is a shame, as our e-cadets pupil group has been working hard on the presentation they were going to give and were looking forward to sharing their knowledge with parents.
We’ll look to reschedule this event.
A quick reminder that the only clubs on this week are the Thursday clubs (since they missed a week earlier in the term). All other clubs have now finished.
This is also the final week for those Thursday clubs, there will be no more clubs running at all after this week.
Congratulations to these children for being our Top Chef nominees! They were nominated by our Midday Supervisors for showing the HPS values at lunchtime.
Each week 7 new children- one from each Year group-will be nominated by the Middays to cook with Mrs Griffiths our Catering Manager each Tuesday afternoon.
We have been asked to pass on a letter on the subject of attendance from the local education authority. You can download that letter below:
We have your own views on attendance and how important it is to a child’s education:
Over previous years there has been a steady increase in the school’s overall attendance.
End of the day:
We know that emergencies happen which mean that a parent / carer may occasionally arrive late to collect their child/ children at the end of the day. Please try to let us know by telephone if this going to be the case.
The following information does not affect most families but it is important for you to be aware that it is happening.
To reduce lateness there will be random On Site Checks for children/parents arriving to school after 8.55am.
These will be carried out by the Education Welfare Officer, Mr Paul Ward.
Penalty notices have been issued to some parent/carers taking unauthorised leave during term time. These are issue either by the Education Welfare Officer, currently Mr Paul Ward.
A reminder that where term time absence is unavoidable it is necessary for parents to provide proof of the reason for this. Please ask at the Office if you are unclear or request to see Elaine Lynch, Headteacher.
When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher’s instructions and the induction to the lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.
