Census Day

by | Jan 18, 2022

This Thursday is a really important day for us…

The government has a slightly odd way of deciding on a chunk of school funding.

On one special day each year, the government counts how many children at HPS have a school dinner – both free school meals and normal paid for meals count. This Thursday is that day! They then award us a good wedge of funding based on that number of children. This can be as much as £70,000 extra depending on how many children have that school dinner!

So, on this Thursday (20th Jan), if everyone in school had a school dinner, we’d get a massive amount of extra money for school. We would encourage you to order a school meal on Thursday!
