Highdown School
and Sixth Form Centre

September 2021 Covid-19 Update

We are really excited to welcome back Highdown students to school. 

Arrangements for return to school

Following students supervised tests on site at school, students are now returning to twice weekly testing at home. 

We recommend testing Sunday and Wednesday nights as a routine. 

Covid-19 Home Test Kits:

We are sending home tests kits with your child this week (W/C 6th September). 

If you have any queries about the tests, and you live in England, please call 119 (free from mobiles and landlines). Lines are open every day from 7am to 11pm.

Covid-19 Lateral Flow Test - Step by step guide on administering the test at home:

As we prepare for students to complete supervised asymptomatic testing in school and the subsequent issuing of home testing kits, we thought you may find a short video on how this is to be carried out helpful and hopefully reassuring.

Face coverings: 

Face coverings are no longer compulsory in school, however if you still wish to wear a face covering, you may continue to do so. 

Timings of the school day: 

With Covid-19 restrictions eased, we have now returned to normal dismissal time for the whole school. 

Dismissal time is 3:05pm for everyone.
