Academy Fun Sports Day
Academy Fun Sports Day at Crystal Place
Year 2 had a great afternoon on Wednesday. Their task was to build a ship (just like Christopher Columbus’) and see whether they it would float or sink. Year 2 love making links between their topics and learning new facts. How many do you think floated?! https://t.co/Q8HrdfkdH1

At HPAPL we aim to establish a mutually supportive and respectful relationship with all our parents where trust and respect is at the heart of all we do.
We value the unique insight that parents can provide into their children’s learning and acknowledge that learning begins and continues in the home environment. By working in close partnership we seek to nurture in the children the development of trust, respect, confidence, independence, self-esteem and the desire to learn.
We aim to keep parents and carers very well informed about their child’s learning, progress, well- being, behaviour and attendance. We work in partnership with families in order to help every pupil achieve their full potential.
Each term there are focused workshops to support parents’ understanding about our curriculum and strategies to support children at home. We run weekly parent workshops for parents of children in the Foundation Stage and open mornings for prospective parents. Details and dates are updated on our calendar of events.

We value this feedback and use it to support our continued improvement. Parents may also share their views by visiting http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
