Here is some government guidance for parents and carers on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
The DfE COVID-19 helpline is available to answer questions relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents and young people can contact this helpline on 0800 046 8687 from Mon-Fri 8am – 6pm and Sat-Sun 10am-4pm.
We’re all excited to see the pupils again. There are still lots of measures in place to keep everyone safe, so we need to ask all pupils to please:
Coming back should lead us to ask what we want to keep as well as put aside. We hope that no other generation will experience a lockdown, but are there things this lockdown has taught us which we won’t need another lockdown to value?
—Adam Pettitt, Head
Highgate staff, alumni and parents have been involved in many activities to support members of our community who might be struggling:
Highgate is both a school and a charity. We are working to ensure that Highgate has the most positive impact possible on our community during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

All funds will be split between Highgate’s charitable priorities and directed where the need is greatest, including relief for Highgate families in hardship, our sister school the London Academy of Excellence Tottenham, and other activities such as our DTE department’s PPE production or donations to local food banks or to support key workers.
You can also visit our Highgate@Home blog page, where pupils and staff will be sharing regular features on school life during ‘lockdown.’
