A Finsbury primary school is celebrating its first ever “good” Oftsed score.
Moreland Primary School, in Moreland Street off Goswell Road, was criticised by the inspectorate in 2013. It was given a “requires improvement” rating: third on a scale of four.
However, this came only two years after it had joined forces with nearby St Luke’s C of E Primary School. And on Monday, Ofsted recognised its progress since then with the “good” rating, which is second on the scale.
It was described as “very well led”, with pupils “achieving well” and teachers “delivering exciting lessons”.
Executive headteacher Ann Dwulit said: “Moreland is just up the road from St Luke’s and was in danger of closing in 2010. The governors and I really wanted to help, and we have been on a journey to improve it at every level since. We are absolutely delighted that Ofsted has recognised the fruits of that hard work.”

The school is moving to a new building on the same site at the end of the year and Mrs Dwulit added: “We are really looking forward to the opening of the new school in November. The future is very bright for the children and we are very motivated to continue to improve.”
