    Final Chance TODAY by 12pm for Keyworkers & EHCPs
    Dear Priestmead Parents/Carers, As messaged earlier, Priestmead is closed AT THE END OF TODAY (afternoon Pegasus Club is on as normal). OUR CRITERIA TO ATTEND PRIESTMEAD NEXT WEEK: If both parents are KEYWORKERS, or one parent in a single parent family is a KEYWORKER, we are prioritising you. Also children with EHCPs. The Government are trying to minimise contact through social distancing so at the moment our position is that if ONE parent is NOT a keyworker, please look after your child at home. We must support essential services to keep the country moving in this time of crisis. Keyworkers have to be on the Government recognised list. Apologies in advance if your job is not on there as we cannot help yet. Our Priestmead staff availability is also reduced linked to restrictions, illness and health and those who are also carers. We have a reduced staffing availability so we have to prioritise. IF YOU MEET THE CRITERIA but have not requested a place by 12pm today, we cannot take your child on Monday as we must formalise our arrangements. We will review late requests on Monday for Tuesday. Please email me directly BY 12PM TODAY: ht@priestmead.harrow.sch.uk Many thanks for your cooperation and understanding. Sash Hamidi Headteacher

    School Closure & Keyworkers
    Dear Priestmead Parents/Carers, As said previously, we are CLOSED from MONDAY with the exception of some children with specific needs, and also parents/carers who are keyworkers. A reminder, if you are a single parent and a KeyWorker, or BOTH parents are Keyworkers with no safe childcare options, then we will provide a provision at Priestmead for your child(ren) during the closure. The Government list matches mostly what we thought. Check it for yourself here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision Please note I only have a small number of staff available too. Please only use this service if you are providing an ESSENTIAL service to keep our country going during this crisis. My thanks to my staff still coming in to enable this. If you think you meet a criteria, or if your position has changed and you no longer need a place, please email me at: ht@priestmead.harrow.sch.uk by 11.00am today (Friday 20th March) at the latest so I can adjust plans accordingly. Many thanks! Today is the last official day of school, ending normal times with gates open from 3.10pm as normal. Sash Hamidi Headteacher Message sent from: Sash Hamidi

    Follow up on Academy Closure Letters
    Dear Priestmead Parents/Carers, REMEMBER WE ARE OPEN FOR EVERYONE TODAY AND TOMORROW (FRIDAY)! I hope you slept well. There was a lot of information shared in our message and letters sent out last night. You will have questions and suggestions I am sure. We have not had any further information yet from the Government but as soon as we do, we will send a message out to you later on today. From 8.35am today, I will be at the RED GATE by the Service Road; Mrs Best will at the PARK GATE, Mr Patel & Ms Boghani will be on the NoMow, Mrs Nita Patel will be ready with the team at the School Office. Please come and see us if you have questions. We ask you not to chat about any worries or queries with your child's class teacher/TA or ask lots of questions before school this morning - we really want them to focus on meeting and greeting the children and reassuring them - let's limit the children hearing any worrying conversations (remember they hear everything!!!!!). Come and find one of the leaders or come to the school office if you want a chat. Thanks to those who have completed the survey, but also thank you to a number of you who have taken the time to email in or put on Facebook your gratitude regarding ow we have managed communications. The positive feedback is really appreciated at the moment :-) See you later! Sash Hamidi Headteacher

    Coronavirus Update 2.30pm 18th March 2020
    Dear Priestmead Parents/Carers, You will have seen the Government plan to release a statement on school and academy closure at 5pm today. We will listen to the announcement and send further details this evening in response. We have also sadly postponed the Y4 Castleton Residential Trip (sorry Y4!). We are looking to rearrange. Details will be confirmed in the coming weeks when we know more. It all feels very gloomy at the moment I know. We will send details of things to help you, your child and their learning in the next days if we are to close. Our Priestmead team are working hard to finalise plans so things feel as calm and settled for your child IF we shut. We are in this together as a community. If you have Care Bag donations (see the last Pegasus Newsletter) , please bring them in today, tomorrow or Friday. Also let us know if one would help you. Thank you :-) Sash Hamidi Headteacher ht@priestmead.harrow.sch.uk

    Coronavirus Parent/Carer Update 16.3.2020
    Dear Priestmead Parents/Carers, I have attached an update following the Prime Minister's update which came after our Pegasus Newsletter went out. PRIESTMEAD and all schools and academies in England remain OPEN. We are reviewing information from trusted sources daily. We know you are worried. When a school/academy closure comes, it could last weeks or even months. At the moment children remain largely unaffected and we are protecting them as much as we can and keeping normality. We are trying hard to keep our children enjoying being children without worrying about things we worry about as adults. Please support this by sending your child to us as normal, subject to them and your family household all being well. Let's keep working together as a community. Sash Hamidi Headteacher
