    PLANNING FOR MONDAY 8TH MARCH
    Dear Priestmead Families, I hope you are all well and all safe. As we said in the Pegasus Newsletter, we wanted to update you on the plans for MONDAY 8TH MARCH. All Primary School children are returning to school in England so we want you to prepare your child (and yourself) for returning to Priestmead. Attached to this message is a copy of the slides used in a 15-minute presentation. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch the video below BEFORE your Parent/Carer Meeting tomorrow (Friday). It will answer many of the questions you will have about reopening, meaning the precious time with your child's teacher can be used to celebrate your child's successes and to share any concerns you have. The video is here (and is only 15 minutes so grab a cuppa and watch carefully!!): https://www.loom.com/share/fdc0c249b863469bace4a5f500a080c5 The KEY message is that we are doing the same systems to minimise risk from Monday 8th March that we were doing back in December with a few little differences, explained in the video. If you have any questions, please email me at COVID@theppt.co.uk Thanks as always for your support and we genuinely cannot wait to see you and your brilliant child(ren) on MONDAY 8TH MARCH!

    STAY AT HOME GUIDANCE
    Dear Priestmead Families, Once again we have a national lockdown. Priestmead is only open for Keyworker children and Vulnerable children. Those parents/carers have had their places confirmed. For the significant majority of our children and our community, the guidance is clear...STAY AT HOME. Attached is the Government Guidance to refer to. Only go out for: - emergencies -essential supplies -exercise once a day There are some other exceptions in the guidance. If we all do our bit, the sooner this final phase will be over, more people will be vaccinated and we can be together again. Thank you for your support at this difficult time. We will keep in contact online - please avoid coming to the school office. Kind regards, Sash Hamidi Executive Headteacher

    DETAILS FOR PRIESTMEAD FROM NEXT WEEK
    Dear Priestmead Families, Following on from the letter sent earlier today for both academies in The Pegasus Partnership Trust, I now attach the specific details for PRIESTMEAD children, where we can see already the significant majority will be learning from home. Again, please read the letter carefully, prompt each other to look at it, and come back to us with any questions after 9.30 am on Monday. Please be patient as this approach is new on this scale based on our experiences last term. The key is we want your child to keep up their engagement with school, with friends, with their teaching staff, and be excited to learn and also get back to school soon. We will miss them! These arrangements: START from 8.40am on Tuesday 5th January 2021 END by 3.40pm on Friday 15th January 2021 We expect a Government review by Thursday 14th January to confirm if arrangements must continue from Monday 18th January or if we will return to full schooling. As soon as we know we will let you know. Don't forget to complete the survey: https://bit.ly/TPPTSurJan21 Kind regards, Sash Hamidi Executive Headteacher ht@priestmead.harrow.sch.uk

    PRIESTMEAD CLOSURE PLANS
    Dear Priestmead Families, I hope you are well and let's all hope for a happier 2021! We are ready to start outlining plans and sharing more details regarding the plans for the next two weeks. Attached is a letter outlining some key questions about what our response to the current COVID situation is. The very strong message is to STAY AT HOME as the priority. We will be opening to a small number of children who are vulnerable or where BOTH parents are critical workers. If one parent/carer is not a critical worker, we need them to do their part in this global pandemic and national crisis by staying at home with their child. TOGETHER we must stop the spread of this new variant, protecting as many Priestmead families as possible, our staff and their families as well as the NHS who are at capacity. We all must do our part for Harrow. If you feel you meet the criteria outlined in the attached letter (and previous letter), we ask you to complete the survey in the letter by 1.00 pm MONDAY. Please read the WHOLE letter carefully before responding to the survey. Please use your Priestmead Parent WhatsApp groups to make sure all Priestmead families have seen this. If you have questions, the school office will be open from 9.30 am tomorrow (MONDAY). Please be patient - we will get to queries as soon as we can. We thank you for your support as always in reducing risk and protecting our community and country. Kind regards, Sash Hamidi Executive Headteacher
