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.

Our children run HPSnews, conducting interviews and in the field reports on what’s going on in and around Huntingdon Primary.
Our trained pupil HPStv technicians help with longer format filming projects around the school, including submissions for the Cambridge Young People’s Film Festival.
HPStv helps the other pupil leadership groups produce video content, including things like the Maths Experts making instructional videos to help others improve their maths techniques.

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.
