Weekly Update – 14.1.22

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find this weeks updates and reminders below:

Reporting Absences

Please leave a message on our telephone absence line 01275 843969 explaining the reasons behind your child’s absence by 9:30am at the latest. If your child has tested positive for   Covid please also state the start and end date of their isolation.  *Please do not report absence by e-mail because we may not see this until later in the day, by which time the absence may already be recorded as unauthorised. 


If your child has had an upset stomach then they cannot return to School until 48 hours after the last bout of sickness or diorrhoea. 

Home Learning

If your child is isolating due to covid and feels well enough, the remote home learning planners can be found on your child’s Microsoft Teams account, along with additional resources.  Assignments will also be set on Teams.  If you have any problems logging in then please contact Lisa on office@highdownschools.org

Chromebooks and laptops are also available from School if you do not have the technology at home and again please contact the office on office@highdownschools.org

After School Club

We are delighted with the smooth transition of the Club to Future Stars.

 Please could you make sure that your child is registered and booked in for sessions they are attending (https://www.futurestarscoaching.co.uk/).

Also please do not send any more money to High Down Schools either via Parentpay, Childcare Vouchers or tax saving scheme unless you owe for sessions pre Christmas. Sessions from January 2022 onwards are payable to Future Stars.

Special Menu on Thursday 20th January – Build a Burger

As 20th January is our school census day it would help us out enormously with funding if as many Infant children as possible booked a school dinner on that day.

We have an afternoon vacancy for a 1:1 Learning Support Assistant in the Junior School. Please visit our website for full details and an application form (https://highdownschools.co.uk/staff-governors/vacancies/)
