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.
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.

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.
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
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!
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
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.
