Heat Closure

Heat Closure

The weather has been absolutely scorching and is due to be even hotter tomorrow for our final day.

Although parts of our school are air conditioned, not all the year groups are.

We’re asking you to collect your children early, before the hottest part of the day. We will be closing school at 12.15pm on Wednesday, just before lunchtime. If you’re unable to collect your child early, please let the school office know by phoning 01480 375113 or stopping by in person.

If your child usually walks home on their own and you would like them to be able to do so at 12.15pm then we must have written permission. Please send a signed note in with your child giving permission to walk home with the child’s name, class and your own name. We can’t accept verbal permission.

We wish you all a lovely summer holiday!

Farmers Market

Farmers Market

Thursday (the 18th) HPS will be holding a Farmer’s Market in the Purple Main Hall/Courtyard areas.

We will have handicrafts, fruit, vegetables and prepared food for sale – all lovingly created and grown by the children of HPS!

We look forward to seeing you there, and the children are keen to know what you think of their farmers produce. In some cases, it’s been a whole year of work growing the produce!

On the morning of the Thursday 18th July, we would like you to bring your Foundation Stage/KS1 child to their classroom as usual. Please go back around the front of the school and through the KS2 playground area to wait for our Market to open.

Due to space restrictions, your child will come into the Purple Hall/Courtyard area at the following time:

Foundation Stage, Year One, Year Two
9.15 a.m. – 10.30 a.m.

In the afternoon, the KS2 children will be ready for their Farmer’s Market at the following time. Please walk through the KS2 playground area to wait for the KS2 Market to open.

KS2 classes – Years Three, Four, Five and Six
2.15p.m. – 3.15 p.m.

Best wishes,
The Knowledge and Understanding Curriculum Team

Year 5 question

Year 5 question

Year 5 pupils are bringing home an important letter today, and we need your reply back by Monday morning please.

The letter is about the residential trip that will take place next year when your children are in year 6. We need to know potential numbers now so that we can look to book the appropriate resources.
Please return the slip indicating if you’d be likely to want a place on the residential. This doesn’t commit you to anything and there’s no payment required, we’d just like to know potential interest.

If you don’t return an expression of interest then it’s possible we won’t have a place available for you when it comes time for the trip to happen.

HPS Picnic Lunch!

HPS Picnic Lunch!

Friday is our HPS Picnic Lunch Day, and you’re all invited!

12-1.30pm
Please arrive through the main school door – if you’ve ordered a school lunch then you’ll be given a token that you can exchange at the serving hatch for your food. If you’ve brought your own picnic please still come in through the main entrance.

We’ll also have Ice creams for sale during the lunch hour instead of after school like usual on a Friday.
We look forward to a lovely picnic lunch with the whole school to celebrate a fantastic year at HPS!
