At H.P.S. Pupil Voice plays a very important part in helping us to be the best that we can be. We know that our school is a great school and we have celebrated a few of the very best things on the ‘STARS’ page. The LIGHT BULBS represent the bright ideas for ‘even better ifs’.
This booklet is a summary of our thoughts for the coming year.

A connected school
At HPS we use a learning network called Edmodo that allows children to communicate, share and collaborate with each other and teachers from wherever they are – home or school.
Download the Edmodo app on your device or login using a browser below.
Seesaw empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school and allows parents to see what’s happening in school, as it happens, and comment on what they see.

Our children lead the way
Our children are members of one of eight house teams. House tokens are collected throughout the term and at the end of each term we add up the totals for each house. The winning house gets a special treat and at the end of the year the house with the most tokens overall get to do something really special! View the details.
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. 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. See the winners.
We have lots of systems that our children and parents use in school and from home to enrich their learning. We publish live data from many of these systems, broken down by class and year group, in nice graph form over on our Open Data page. See the data here.

What’s coming next
Writing for a real world audience
At HPS our children write their own blogs! Blogging gives our children the chance to write for a real world audience. When their audience is the whole world, children are motivated to be the best writers they can be. Our pupil blogging network, hpsblogs.net, is populated with content written by our own children and is read by visitors all over the world.
Our year group pages feature news and information, usually written by the teachers, from each of our year groups about what they’ve been up to lately.
