MESSAGE FOR PARENTS/CARERS of CHILDREN in YEARS 4 to 6. School Gate Opening.
From today, Wednesday 28 November, we will be changing the gate that the children exit from.
Coming out of the quad, the black gate closest to the bike shed will be opened. The gate at the opposite end of the quad will now be closed.
At the end of the day staff will bring children onto the playground to meet you.
We ask Parents to allow enough space around the gate for the staff to bring the children onto the playground.
With the trip to The National Gallery in London fast approaching, we wanted to clarify the final details and expectations for the days. We’re taking around 500 children with us, so there’s some organising to be done!
Year 1 and 2: Monday November 12th
Year 3: Thursday November 15th
Year 4: Tuesday November 13th
Year 5: Wednesday November 14th
Year 6: Tuesday November 20th
Children will be expected to arrive promptly at school for 7:50am to leave at 8:15am. All children must wear full school uniform on the day, including comfortable and durable school shoes. We ask that children do not bring portable electronics including mobile telephones on the trip.
Children may bring a maximum of £5 spending money which will be their responsibility for the duration of the trip and should be placed in a purse or wallet.
As we know, the weather is often unpredictable so please ensure all children have appropriate clothing e.g. rain coats. All children must bring a packed lunch, unless you have previously stated that your child is eligible for a free school meal. We strongly advise that children are packed up with an extra drink and a snack as it will be an extended day for the children.
We will be Leaving the National Gallery at 2:30pm and aim to arrive back at school for around 4:30-5:00pm.
However, these timings are dependent on traffic and so you will find timely updates on the school website and social media pages to keep you up-to-date as we approach HPS.

The reply slips for the Y6 residential trip are due back today. We’re still waiting on a few so we’ve decided to extend the deadline to Monday.
Please return your slip by Monday as we’ll then be booking the accommodation and you may miss your chance! Monday is the absolute last chance to bag a place.
(Even if you don’t want a place please return the slip saying such, so that we know.)
Last half term, the children in year 6 took part in a project to help the fight against plastic pollution in our oceans. The children researched the issue and debated it, they wrote letters to organisations around the world and they created their own documentary style movies to spread awareness.
Excitingly, on the last day of the half term, we received a letter back from Greenpeace! The children couldn’t believe their letters had been read by such a big organisation and even better, they responded!
Heres our reply from Greenpeace and head to SeeSaw to watch our documentaries.
