    POSITIVE BEHAVIOURS

    A reminder to all adults who feel they must drive as they live more than a mile away, to be thoughtful when parking and not to block driveways.  We value our community and want to maintain our   positive relationships with them.

  • PEGASUS NEWSLETTER - ISSUE 1 - 06.09.16

    WELCOME TO YOUR NEW LOOK PEGASUS NEWSLETTER!

    We hope you had a brilliant holiday and are excited and eager to start the new academic year.

    It will be a big year for Priestmead.  We are celebrating our 80th birthday, we are preparing for our new building and then in January 2017 we move into our new building, and we are also reviewing our curriculum following your feedback.

    Our new-look newsletter and website follows on from your feedback over the last term, so thank you and do let us know what you think. 

    ur new website has gone live!  It can be translated in over 50 languages. 

    Visit: www.priestmead.harrow.sch.uk

     

    MEET THE TEAM SESSIONS:

    As flagged up at the end of last term, we would like to meet Y1-Y6 parents on:

    TUESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER

    3:30-4:30pm or 6:00-7:00pm

    These sessions are for YOU, our Priestmead Parents/Carers.  We can offer a playground       supervision for the 3.30pm-4.30pm sessions for children between the ages of 4-11.  Under 4s will need to stay with parents. 

    Each session will be in two parts for Parents/Carers, using a similar format to the meetings we held in July for Nursery and Reception parents:

    Part 1:   Meet the school leaders, admin team & hear about safety

    Part 2:   Meet your child’s teacher and see their classroom

     

    STAR OF THE WEEK

    Star of the Week is a chance for staff to recognise and celebrate children who either consistently make good choices with their learning and/ or behaviour, or have overcome a barrier to improve their learning/ behaviour, or are great ambassadors for the school through the way they exemplify our school values and are model citizens of the future.

    To make it meaningful, there is no guarantee every child will get it.  Similarly we have some quietly brilliant children who deserve to be recognised more than once.  Your child will receive a reward in front of their peers, hear directly from their teacher as to why they were chosen and we will send you a postcard to celebrate your child’s achievements as well as put their name in this newsletter.

    Keep encouraging your child to be the best they can be!

     

    ATTENDANCE

    Your child can come into school from 8.40am.  Registration is taken at 8.50am.  Most classes start with phonics, English or maths, so it is essential your child is in school on time.

    We also expect high attendance.  A healthy diet, regular exercise and

    positive parenting all contribute to your child achieving high attendance.  Call us from 7.30am if your child is unwell on 020 8907 5434.

     

    START & END OF THE DAY

    START OF THE DAY:

    ONLY Reception, Y1S & Y1J line up and are walked into school with their class teacher from 8:40am.

    ALL other classes will walk straight in from 8:40am.

    Registration closes at 8:50am so learning can begin promptly.  If you arrive after 8:50am you must take your child to reception to sign in with Mrs Khan.

    Reception:        Athens Playground

    Year 1-Year 6:  Olympus Playground

    END OF THE DAY: Children are dismissed at the following times:

    3.15pm Year 1 (and Reception)

    THANK YOU!

    Nearly 200 families attended our “Meet the Teacher” sessions last week—a brilliant turnout, so thank you!

    Thanks also for engaging in our Safeguarding and our “Planning for Emergencies” session.  As we said we will practice our usual full  evacuation for a fire for example, but also a “lock-down”.  We hopefully will never need it but     being prepared enables us to help you and our children feel safer.  Please discuss with your child.

    Thanks also to all those who have requested an Extended Schools club.  It is a huge challenge to organise hundreds of children into clubs under preference order and my thanks to the Admin team who undertake this.  If there are queries, please come and talk to us.

    Similarly Music lessons start this week!  Any    queries, let us know!

     

    OUR NEW BUILDING

    In 115 days time we will all be in our new building!  How exciting is that!

    Currently our Fridays have been pretty much dedicated to building meetings—working out what will go where, what new things we need, logistics etc.  Busy times but great fun!

    You will recall we were talking with the Local Authority regarding the use of our existing building once we move into our new building.  There have been many meetings over the summer and the    Local Authority plan to hold a formal consultation in the coming weeks.  We have ensured that we put our       Priestmead children’s needs first as  always!

    This week—a “Wayfinding” focus for the new building!

     

    Y3 & Y4 RESIDENTIAL TRIPS—Information

    We are going to try and use technology to help us improve communication!  Tomorrow (TUESDAY) we will have an internet presentation on the residential trip for parents and children to watch from home (do not come to school).  There will then be a web LIVE CHAT option if you had any questions, all from the comfort of your home (or work!). Your child will bring home instructions tomorrow (Tuesday). 

    6.00pm-6.30pm  ONLINE for Y3

    6.30pm-7.00pm ONLINE for Y4

     

    REMEMBER...any time off requests must be asked for in advance or they are unauthorised.  Unauthorised absences can lead to a fine from the Local Authority.  You must follow the school procedures.

    RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS!

    A local resident ended up leaving children she was due to collect stranded, as a Priestmead parent blocked her garage on the Service Road.  I am losing track of how many times I am stating this but do not park in front of the garages on the service road, do not block    resident driveways and please just park further away and walk in!

     

    As always, if you have any concerns, meet your child’s class teacher first – speak to the office and they will arrange an appointment for you.  If there is something more urgent or private, a senior member of staff will always be made available to see you.  If you would like an appointment to see Mrs Gibson, Mrs Jadeja, Mr Rogers please contact the office.

    NEW Parent Governor Elections — We need you!

    You should have received your Parent Governor Election nomination form on Tuesday.

    The closing date for nominations is MONDAY 21st NOVEMBER 2016. 

    Nominations should be posted into the Ballot Box at the school office.

    Our parent governors are very valuable members of the governing body.  We rely on them to bring a set of specific skills to help hold the school to account, as well as bring a parent perspective to help us to decide what is best for all our pupils/students.

    If you think this may be something that you would be interested in, have a look at the Governors section on the school website.

    ASSEMBLY THEME:  Remembrance Day & Awe & Wonder of Music

     

    THINK BEFORE YOU PARK

    Please, please, please think before you park..  The yellow zig zag lines are there for a reason and cars should not stop or park on them at any time.  We are shocked to see elderly grandparents being “kicked” out the car in the road as the driver doesn’t want to walk in themselves!  We need to make sure our        children are getting into school safely and can cross the road safely.  Thank you for helping us respect for each other, and our local neighbours.  A reminder that children and adults should come off bikes and scooters when they enter school grounds.
