This report celebrates the many strengths of the school.  There is a recognition of the Good provision which is available for your children, high quality of teaching and significant improvements that have been made over the last four years.

We know that we are very lucky to work with your children and it is them who have enabled us to achieve this positive commentary.

As Headteacher, I would also like to thank the Staff who work with drive, enthusiasm and commitment. As expected, there are a few small development points for us to work on.  We will do this with immediate effect.

Finally, the inspectors spoke to many parents. Thank you for the support shown for the school.

Kind Regards
Elaine Lynch

We are delighted to have recieved an extremely positive report from Ofsted following the school inspection on 14 and 15 March 2018.

This report will be sent home on Friday 20 April. It is a true celebration of the high quality provision that children at H.P.S. receive.

Just a few of the judgements:
• Pupils make good progress and standards are rising quickly in reading, writing and mathematics.
• Behaviour is good, pupils proudly follow the School Values.
• The curriculum is a strength.
• Safeguarding is effective.

…Read the rest on Friday.

Free School Dinners!

Free School Dinners!

Effective from 1 April 2018, the new income threshold for families on Universal Credit, for Free School Meals (FSM) will be £7,400 net (take home pay).

If you qualify now, then you’ll get Free School Meals until 2022, even if your income goes up above the threshold. So definitely worth applying for now, even if you currently get meals free automatically in Early Years, Y1 or Y2, or you expect your income to lift you above the threshold in future! This could save you up to £400 a year!

The school also receives extra Pupil Premium funding for each child who qualifies – but only if you’ve filled out the form.

You can apply online via the Cambs FSM website here: Cambridgeshire Free School Meals

If you have any queries about the changes or general enquiries about Free School Meals, please contact EWB.FSM@cambridgreshire.gov.uk or 01223 703200.
