22th July 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
We had a really lovely end of term. ‘Oliver’ was wonderful! Year 6 and the Y6 team worked extremely hard in a short space of time as school journey was later this year and they certainly made us and their families extremely proud. You will receive the school 2020-2021 Year Book early next term which is a lovely keep-sake showing just some of what we have achieved this academic year as we worked our way through the pandemic and a big lock down from January to March and bubble closures off and on all year. I am stepping down as executive head teacher now and will be part-time head teacher of St Luke’s next year. I have loved working in Moreland for the last 10 years- it has been a real privilege. We have certainly been on a journey together and I am extremely pleased and proud of all we- the governing body and the staff team have achieved as the school literally goes from strength to strength in this most beautiful building. The children have always been at the heart of every decision we have made and they are thriving and a real credit to their families and to us- that is all that matters. Thank you for all your support and partnership over the last 10 years.
We would like to say good bye and thank you to the following members of staff who are leaving: Miss Dyl, Lucy, Mr Gallier, Iqra and Raz. We thank them for their fantastic contribution to the school and wish them all the best in their new roles.
Catherine has already shared with you details of what to do over the summer period in the event your child develops COVID symptoms or if they come into contact with anyone who has tested positive in the next few days or during the holiday if they attend summer school.
September- new school year
Here are arrangements for the children’s return on Friday 3rdh September.
Please see Islington Council website for holiday activities in Islington. The Mayor of London has also arranged ‘positive activities for young Londoners’ over the summer through ‘Our London Map’.
Families who are entitled to Free School Meals under the government financial criteria will receive a one off voucher for £70 per child on or around the 28th July to cover the whole summer period. This has been funded by Islington Council.
I am now handing over to the very capable hands of Catherine Lawrence. I will continue to work with Catherine next year so will still be popping in and out. I really hope you have a good summer and have some lovely family time.
Executive head teacher
