From the very first day of securing a place here, our Moreton students embark on an exciting journey to prepare for their future lives. Our belief is that every child should be treated as an individual. We deliver a first class, knowledge-rich education not only within the curriculum and classroom but also within the wealth of experiences on offer here. Our students are offered the chance to visit Universities, businesses, meet inspiring people and learn those all-important life and social skills, all of which ensure we are providing them with the very best life chances. We guide and nurture their ambitions and enhance the character development of each individual child.
At Moreton, we recognise the importance of the well-being of each student. As well as having a large Pastoral Team as a main point of contact, each year group is allocated an Attainment and Standards leader to ensure students make the expected progress, within form time students receive daily pastoral care as well as taking part in challenging and thought provoking activities such as;, Developing Literacy skills, love of reading and most recently exploring cultural capital. Students also have the opportunity to use their voices and opinions to make a positive change within the school and the community, by being a member of one of the four sub-committees on the Amethyst Prefect student council; Teaching and learning, Careers and the future, Community and Rewards.
For the fourth year running, Forest Schools remains a key part of the curriculum in Key stage 3. All students in years 7 and 8 participate in weekly lessons delivered in the great outdoors. The core focus is on the development of personal, social and emotional life skills.
As well as this, we offer an extensive catalogue of extra-curricular clubs suitable for every child to thrive in. From Library club to Science club, Rock Band to Football, Dance to Chess to name but a few – there is something that every student can enjoy.
We welcome you to our school to see for yourself how we bring education to life and provide our students with the very best life chances.
Getting to know you sessions
Mrs Evans and the year 7 leadership team will be either visiting your child at their primary school or inviting them to Moreton School to take part in team building activities and sessions. The focus of these sessions are to familiarise your child with key teachers and members of staff within the school and understand the expectations of the school whilst making friends with their fellow peers. Activities include building on communication, preparation and settling in. The sessions also enable us to ‘get to know’ your child individually and tailor set groups, transition activities and the key stage 3 curriculum for the very best start here at Moreton School.
Dates of these sessions will be communicated to families personally.
Afternoon Tea Meet and Greet
As we are so looking forward to meeting you all, we can’t wait until July! We would like invite you and your child to an afternoon tea at the school to meet fellow families of the school in a relaxed environment, talk to the senior leadership team and the year 7 team and enjoy delicious refreshments. Dates will be confirmed soon.
Transition week this year will take place during June.
This exciting week gives your child a fully immersive experience as a student at Moreton School where they will take part in all lessons that they will continue to study from September 2020. Your child will follow the timetable with their fellow form group peers and will see their form tutor each day so that they can reflect and feedback on their day in familiar surroundings.
Your child will be fully supported by our year 7 leadership team, the year 7 prefect buddies and sixth form ambassadors who will follow students throughout the duration of transition week to ensure they feel happy and safe and are a familiar presence throughout.
Celebration and Graduation Evening
To mark your child’s first week as a Moreton student, we would like to invite you to come and celebrate the graduation of your child into year 7 and to see the fantastic work they have produced over the course of transition.
This year, our event will take place during the transition week. We hope to see you all there to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Mrs Hayley Evans
Associate Assistant Headteacher of Transition
