Weekly Update 13.11.2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find weekly updates and reminders below:


A reminder that absences must be reported by phoning the school on 01275 843969.  Please select the appropriate option to report absence and then leave your message. Please be as specific as you can regarding the reason.  Obviously knowing the reason for all absences in the current climate is paramount.

Nursery gate buzzer

Just a polite request to stop children from pressing the nursery buzzer on the way home from school.  Several times this week the nursery staff have gone out thinking the gate is closed, only to find the gate open and no-one near the buzzer – and this then leaves just one staff member with the nursery class.

Sims Parentlite

If you have not yet signed up to Sims Parentlite to access and update the data we hold on your child (see our message of 14th September), please contact the school office to request an invitation code.  Once you have signed up, please ensure you update the consent section e.g. Consent for your child to have photo taken etc.

School Lunches

Just a reminder to order your child’s meals on Aspens.  The meals are made to order and sent over to class in named bags so it’s really important that the kitchen know the orders in advance.

* Also please only order the vegan meal if your child is vegan and you have already informed the kitchen of this.  

If you have any problems ordering, please contact Lisa on office@highdownschools.org.


Odd Socks Day – Monday 16th November

Children are invited to wear odd socks to school on Monday as part of our work for Anti-Bullying Week, stressing the message that it’s ok to be different.

We hope you all have a great weekend.

Kind regards

School Office
