About our Children

Celebrations

Our children are members of one of eight house teams. House tokens are collected throughout the term for various achievements in school 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! You can see the current points totals in the graph, which we update at the end of every half term.

  • Amethyst: 1 100% 100%
  • Turquoise: 1 100% 100%
  • Jet: 1 100% 100%

Star Of The Week

Every week each class teacher picks one child who has been a shining example of one of our HPS Values. They are celebrated in assembly and get a coveted star award to display to all.

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.

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. This shows the leaderboard so far this year, updated weekly.

Current Weekly Winner (last week):

What does it mean?

This gauge updates once a week and is showing the percentage of attendance for all sessions last week and the year to date across the whole school.

As a school, we aim to have a 96%+ attendance rate to ensure our children have the best chance of success.

The table shows the attendance percentage for each class over the year, along with how many times each class has been the highest attended class in school for that week – the Weekly Wins.

If more than one class has 100% attendance, they both get a Weekly Win, which is why the total weekly wins may add up to more than the amount of weeks school has been open.

These are aggregated stats for the entire class. Individual children who’s attendance drops below 97% will be sent a letter to let them know how important it is to be present at school – we take further steps if the attendance of a child continues to drop.

This gauge shows the class with the highest attendance percentage for the last full week of school.
