Lego League Winners!

Lego League Winners!

This weekend HPS sent a team to take part in the First Lego League Regional competition. It involved schools from all over the region designing, building and programming lego robots to complete challenges, and undertaking a STEM project in our local environment.

And we won! Well done to the children who took part, we’re very proud! HPS is now through to the national finals, competing against Primary and Secondary schools from across the UK.

Helping The Gambia

Helping The Gambia

Late last year we donated some of our unused furniture to the Lisa Kent Trust charity which works to educate children in The Gambia.
This week we received an update that our tables and chairs had arrived! Great to see them being put to good use!

Census Day!

Census Day!

Census day is approaching, and you know what that means – It’s time to secure some extra funding for our children!
Given that our school budget is once again being cut it would help greatly if on Thursday 16th Jan you sent your child for a school meal.
It’s build a burger day!

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club

You may remember that a while back we asked for interest in a possible Breakfast Club at HPS. Well, we’re now getting ready to launch!
It’ll run for an hour each day from 7.50am until the start of school, starting after the February Half Term holiday.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

And that’s us done! Another fabulous year at HPS is complete.

It’s been a joy teaching your children this year, and we’re already planning great things for 2020!

We hope you have a great festive break – we’ll see everyone back in school on Monday 6th January.

School budget cuts

School budget cuts

You may have seen in the media that schools are facing further budget cuts. HPS is no exception.
Here’s how you can help HPS get more funding for pupil resources at no cost to you!

Register your child for 1. Free School Meals

You may be eligible to claim free school meals for your child if you claim the following benefits:
• Income Support
• Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Child Tax Credit (but not entitled to Working Tax Credit and whose annual income does not exceed £16.190)
• Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
• Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400)
• Guarantee element of State Pension

2. If your child prefers packed lunch, it is worth registering as well.

This could mean your child receives a discounted place on school trips, reduced cost of clubs and one free item of uniform!

Christmas Dates

Christmas Dates

Just a reminder – as several local schools are doing it differently – HPS closes at the end of the school day (normal time) on Friday 20th December and opens again on Monday 6th January 2020.

So Friday is our last day before the Christmas break!

Christmas Disco

Christmas Disco

It’s our Christmas Disco today after school! Each ticket entitles you to a free drink and packet of crisps.

Just a note on logistics:
Please enter through the main school entrance. At the end of the disco, collecting of children will be from the Purple Hall doors that open directly onto the playground. To get there, go through the large gate onto the playground.

EYFS and KS1 4.00 – 5.00pm
KS2 5.30 – 6.30pm

Christmas Lunch

Christmas Lunch

A reminder that *all* children must book a Christmas lunch if required, even if they normally receive free school meals. If you don’t book it, you won’t get it on the day!
Slips must be returned to the school office on or before 3.20pm on Monday 9th December.
