Census Day

by | May 15, 2023

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. 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 special day, if everyone in school had a school dinner on that one day, we’d get a massive amount of extra money for school.


This year it’s Thursday 18th May.

We would encourage you to order a school meal on this day!
