Head Teacher news

Head’s news

We hope you and your families are all keeping well and safe. We have seen some excellent work that children have posted on Class Dojo and heard what many children and parents are doing at home. We are also sharing some examples of this on the school Twitter account if you would like to see. Please continue to let us know if you need any support at all. Many parents have to juggle home learning and child care with their own work and we are extremely grateful to you all. You and your children have shown real resilience and should be extremely proud.

Safer Internet Week

This week we have been celebrating Safer Internet Week.  This has been a good opportunity to remind our pupils of the importance of being safe and sensible on the internet, whether on social media, doing online ‘remote learning’ or when using the internet in general. 

As ever key rules are as follows:

  1. Don’t share personal information online.
  2. Use the internet and social media for positive reasons only.  Treat others how you would treat them in the playground.
  3. Never meet someone in person you have only met online.
  4. Be careful what you share. Everything is permanent on the internet – your digital footprint lasts forever.

With this in mind we have updated our safer internet advice pages on our website.  Please click here https://www.moreland-islington.co.uk/esafety/ to take a look.

Below is a link to an expression of interest form for parents to complete if you would like their child to take part in these sessions.

Children returning

We will re-open for key/critical worker and vulnerable children on Monday 22 February. These are still the only children we are allowed to have in school at the moment. All children should have received their packs today for learning after half term. If you have not collected the new pack yet please come in and collect it tomorrow so that your child has what they need for next term’s learning. Please ring the school office before you come so they can have it ready for you.

The Prime Minister has suggested that all children may return to school on Monday 8 March. Let’s hope this happens. We will let you know when we receive confirmation of this.  We have to have hope and be optimistic that this will happen especially as the vaccine is rolled out and if infection rates continue to fall.

Very best wishes to you all.
