Weekly Update – 5.3.21

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find weekly updates and reminders below:

Full re-opening next week 

We are looking forward to all the children returning to School on Monday.  Please read the attached information that was sent out last week, regarding the full re-opening of school from Monday (8th March). 


As the Government has reported, attending school is now mandatory and all children should therefore return to school from Monday 8th March.  

Chromebooks/Laptops on loan

Please return any laptops/Chromebooks that were borrowed to support with remote learning next week in a labelled plastic bag with your child’s name and class. These can be left in the office foyer/lobby. 

Inset Day

As confirmed last week, the INSET day on Friday 28th May has been cancelled. We now have an INSET day on Monday 7th June instead, where staff will be completing the rearranged LSP wide training which was cancelled on Monday 8th March. 

School lunches

Please remember to order your child’s lunch on Aspens by 5:00pm the evening before.   It is important to know order numbers in advance because the meals will be individually bagged up and sent over to class.  The new menu for School lunches can be found under letters to parents section.

Parent/Carers Evenings

These will take place the week commencing Monday 22nd March. A letter will be sent out next week which will include the booking link. These will be completed by using Teams as before.

Planned admission number changes

On the advice of High Down Local Governing Body the Trustees have agreed that the PAN of 90, at High Down Infant School, will be currently retained and not reduced as was planned in consultation.

We are really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday and hope you have a great weekend.

Kind regards
