A Prayer on the Death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

9 Apr 2021

God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

Obituary: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh from BBC


It is sometimes difficult to talk to children about death. Marie Curie has some information about how to talk to children about this subject.
You’ll find it here.

The death of a famous person can also remind children of other people who have died, perhaps in your family. Do take time and go at the child’s pace.

Covid Testing

10 Mar 2021

Since the start of 2021 Harrow Council has been offering asymptomatic Covid testing.  This service operates across five test centres in the borough and at the peak of the last wave was helping to identify about 200 people each week who were asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

The strategy has been to encourage those most at risk of contracting and spreading Covid to test regularly.  Primarily that’s meant anyone who is unable to work from home.

The advice from Carole Furlong, Director of Public Health Harrow Council, is that if one member of a household goes out to work or leaves the house every day for another reason, not only should they test twice a week, but everyone they live with should also test this frequently.  This is because other members of the household are exposed to the same level of risk.

We sent out a letter about this on Monday, do check your emails.

School lunches

17 Feb 2021

We have now added the school lunches for the first three weeks following half-term.
From Monday 22nd February – Friday 12th March.
We do not yet know when schools are going to open to ALL children, and whether or not that opening will be gradual, some year groups at a time, or a complete opening on a specific date.
Can we therefore urge parents/carers of children who attended school last week, to book their meals for the coming three weeks via ParentPay.
