This page provides some information to support students' learning remotely.

If you have any safeguarding concerns, students should email our Safeguarding Team via their Office 365 (school) email on safeguarding@highdown.reading.sch.uk or from any other email account on dso@highdown.reading.sch.uk. Parents/carers can email our Safeguarding Team on dso@highdown.reading.sch.uk. Please also be aware of the Childline number: 0800 1111. You can also contact Reading Children's Single Point of Access on 0118 937 3641 (includes out of hours contact details). If a child is in immediate danger, please call 999.


Our main source of remote learning is through Show My Homework. If students are unable to access this they should contact the school office. There is also information here for parents on using Show My Homework.
