It’s our annual HPS Decorate an Egg Competition, entries are now open! (an actual egg, from a chicken – not chocolate ones please. They melt!)
Children are invited to decorate an egg for display in the Pink Hall. There will be prizes on offer for the most creative entries! Please make sure you label your creation clearly so we know who deserves the prizes.
The closing date for entries is Monday, 26th.
You may have seen reports in local and national media about a large number of schools receiving non-specific emailed bomb threats asking for money to be paid.
HPS has taken advice from the police and the Local Education Authority. We have been advised that these emails are NOT GENUINE and, whilst we always maintain a high vigilance, the police have assesed the threat to be low risk with a similar pattern of emails being seen around the country.
We can assure you that your child’s safety is always our top priority at HPS.
You might like to see the Cambridgeshire Evening News article on the matter:
It’s our Parents Evening on the 20th March, and as well as some great chats about how everyone is doing, we’ll also have a book fair in school. Come and browse some great choices and pick up a book at pocket money prices!
Early Years parents! You’re invited to Open Phonics, which happens every Monday morning.
Once you’ve dropped off your child, head round to the front office to sign in and come and join your child for their phonics lesson! We’d love to have you there, and so would your children!
Tomorrow (Wednesday 14th March) Huntingdon Primary School will be inspected by OFSTED.
A letter has gone home today with some details, along with a guide for parents which explains what happens during an inspection.
You can view both the letter and the guide below:
If you like to take part in the Parent Survey, you can do so by following this link:
Please complete the online survey by 11am on 14 March 2018 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, the inspection team will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection, although the free-text box facility will not be available after noon on 15 Mar 2018.
It’s that time of year, so we’re holding our annual HPS Decorate an Easter Egg Competition!
Children are invited to decorate an egg for display in the Pink Hall. There will be prizes on offer for the most creative entries! Please make sure you label your creation clearly so we know who deserves the prizes!
The closing date for entries is Thursday, 29th.
Just a reminder about Site Safety whilst you’re around and about the school – We have entrances designed for cars, and paths/crossings designed for people. During cold weather our designated pathways will be gritted where necessary to ensure they can be used safely.
Please don’t walk through the car gates, even if they’re open, as they’re not designed to detect people and the barrier may close automatically at any time.
Fancy joining team HPS? We have a vacancy on our Midday Supervisor team.
Hours: 6.25 pw, 12.15-1.30pm
Required for January 2018 or as soon as possible after.
Closing Date: 16th March 2018
Please call in at the school office for an application form.
HPS is taking part in World Maths Day, which will be held on Wednesday, 7 March 2018! World Maths Day is the largest maths competition in the world, with more than 4 million students from over 17,000 schools in 200 countries!
An online Hall of Fame (worldmathsday.com) will track points scored in Mathletics throughout the competition with prizes to be awarded to the top students and schools. To play, just log into Mathletics.
Points scored in Mathletics are converted into dollar donations towards UNICEF, so taking part helps this great cause too.
In Zimbabwe it costs $15 a year for a child to go to school. Just 10% of children are able to pay this. Every point earned as children play on Mathletics is converted into cash that goes towards UNICEF’s education program in Zimbabwe.
Children playing Mathletics today, or any day for the rest of the year, will be increasing the amount of money that goes to UNICEF without any cost to you.
Every child deserves an education!

We hope to see HPS children high up the leader boards tomorrow!
