Weekly Update – 27-1-22

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find this weeks updates and reminders below:

Plan B restrictions lifted nationally

As you are probably aware, the Plan B restrictions have been lifted in England from today. We are still following our risk assessment which will be updated and shared on our website shortly. We will share key messages with you next week. 

Parent/Carer meetings w/c 7.2.22

The booking system for all parents/carers will be open from Wednesday 2nd February at 6pm to make appointments. Please note that 5S and 6D meetings will take place at a later date in Term 4.

We have been considering ways in which we can share your child’s work as we have done previously. We have decided that in Term 4, books will be shared. The format and dates are yet to be confirmed with this. 

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. 

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 Lisa on office@highdownschools.org


We have been informed this week about various cases of headlice in a few of our Junior classes.  Please check your child’s hair regularly and treat where necessary. 


Sarah the Photographer will be back in School on Wednesday 9th February to take the photo of any children who were absent or missed in November.  If your child did not have their photo taken in November and you would like them to, please e-mail Lisa on office@highdownschools.org with your childs nameclass and your consent. 

*These are individual photo’s only (no sibling photo’s). 

We hope you all have a great weekend. 

Kind regards
