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.

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.
CYP Film Festival
Every year Huntingdon Primary takes part in the Cambridgeshire Young People’s Film Festival. Films are filmed, edited and produced by our children and the nominated film makers get to go to an Oscar style red carpet ceremony in Cambridge. HPS has won three awards since starting two years ago. See the films here.
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.

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.
