Income based Free School Meals

Children up to Y2 are entitled to a free lunch – but this is not the same as being registered for Free School Meals. Get discounts on trips and free meals for life at HPS!

We’re cashless: Pay for school meals, order uniform items and update your contact details using the Pupil Asset app.

Live Attendance Data

Attendance is incredibly important to the education of our children and makes a big difference to a child’s ability to do well at school.

Studies show that an attendance level of less than 96% will have an impact on a child’s ability to be successful at school. Below 90% and things start getting really hard.

Each week our classes compete to have the highest attendance percentage, with the highest scoring class at the end of term getting an extra special treat. 

Whole-school attendance percentage for the year and the previous week:

100-96% – Best chance of success

95-91% – Less chance of success

Below 90% – Makes it hard to progress
