Absence from School

Please telephone the school before 9am to report your child’s absence on 0208 370 1100 or call the absence line direct on 0208 370 1191 at anytime.

You will be required to call for each day of absence unless you clearly state the length of time your child is unfit to attend school.

Please note medical evidence may be required for persistent absences.

Holidays should not be taken in term time; if this is unavoidable any requests should be made in writing addressed to the Headteacher.  Permission may not always be granted.


Our old minibus is sadly no longer the trusty and reliable vehicle it once was and so our aim this year is to replace it. Our target is to raise £13,000 to fund a newer model which will be used for a variety of activities encompassing the whole school community and used for events such as sports matches, subject field trips and visits to other educational establishments. The minibus will have wheelchair access.   You can follow our progress and make donations directly to the appeal by following this link: or visit Highlands Parents and Friends Association page on the MyDonate website. 

£10270 has been raised so far, with £2730 still to go! Thank you for your support.

Information which needs to be completed should be returned to Mrs Julie Vine either electronically to or in hard copy to Highlands School, 148 Worlds End Land , London, N21 1QQ. (Do not send completed forms to either your child’s primary school or Enfield’s Civic Centre.) Please call 020 8370 1172 if you have any questions regarding the forms or letters.

Documents can be found on this website by going to the Year 6-7 Transition page via the "Parents" tab.
