Islington Education Awards Nominee
We are thrilled to say that Bunmi Omorogbe has been nominated in the Islington Education Awards in the category of secondary teaching assistant. Bumni has worked at the Integrated Learning Space since we first opened in Jan 2015. A few examples of why Bunmi has been rightly nominated for this award:
During our recent Challenge Partners Inspection (October 18) the lead inspector took us aside after an observation in a class room and asked - "who is that person?" commenting "She is clearly quite exceptionally gifted in the work."
One of our family’s report that their son is now using more language and communicating more completely than he has ever done, and this certainly speaks to her dedicated, persistent and skilful work. Bunmi goes out of her way to gather and bring in resources for the young people she works with and has worked with her teacher and her team to design strategies that really work for the young people she supports.
Bunmi's class teacher reports that she has been instrumental in the successes of all the young people she works with, and is an asset, not just to the class, but to the whole school. I agree. Her enthusiasm, generosity and willingness to take on difficult projects is truly admirable. She has worked through some difficult, and sometime challenging situations with young people to successful conclusions which were not always clear from the outset.
I’m happy to report that Bunmi's skills extend way beyond the classroom. Bunmi projects a warm and infectious enthusiasm across the school and often cooks lunch for a number of people at school gaining a reputation for her hot, HOT pepper sauce. Bunmi always brings sunshine to the school, even on the rainiest of days. She is an asset to the community to which we belong and we are thrilled to congratulate you Bunmi, and thank you for all you are and give to our community.

Thank you to the Lord’s Taverners for our Outdoor Spaces Grant!
We are thrilled to have been supported by the Lord's Taverners in 2017 who gave us a grant to install some fantastic play equipment into the school garden. The project was completed in the summer term of 2018, and our pupils are delighted with the transformation!
In October 2018, we were honoured to welcome Sir Michael Parkinson and representatives of the Lord's Taverners to The ILS, to see first hand how we utilised the grant to create an exciting outdoor space for our pupils. Staff and pupils alike truly appreciated the visit, and the opportunity to thank our supporters personally.
