Single Use Plastics

We’ve been thinking a lot in H.P.S. about the amount of single use plastics that we use and dispose of in our school.
Our children have been taking on the job of improving things.

Click through to see the children’s thoughts.

Our Children's Plan

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.

Celebrations

Our children lead the way

House Points

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

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.

Open Data

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.

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.
