Samuel Bartley's Education Panel Review 30th October - Inclusive Social Justice
Jonathan asked me to convey the thanks of the family.
They are now gearing up for the panel hearing - there is still time to donate financial contributions to the £3K the family have had to raise to fight the tribunal hearing.
If you still want to donate - send to Ian at St Matthews made payable to Jonathan Bartley.
Otherwise lets keep praying and supporting Samuel and his family at this difficult time.

AN APPEAL FOR THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF SAMUEL BARTLEY REGARDING EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE
This has now gone to a legal panel review meeting to review the local authorities decision to not let Samuel go to the local school – counter to the governments inclusion policy for children like Samuel who have the ability to enter main stream education system.
The Bartley’s therefore have to raise £3000 to cover the legal fees and specialist health, educational pyschologist, and specialist surveyor professions and solicitors to fight this review case. They are not entitled to financial support available for parents to fight these reviews – taking on the powers. They are under a lot of pressure, so I am therefore asking the Moot community to consider making donations to this fund by either sending cheques made payable to Jonathan Bartley to the address below – or by passing me donations that I will ensure end up with the family.
We don’t often get a practical opportunity to support people regarding justice issues in Moot – and this situation provides us with an opportunity to show kindness and really needed support.

So please do consider supporting this campaign.
Address for cheques made payable to "Jonathan Bartley": The Moot Community, St Matthews House, 20 Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2BU

moot rhythm of life service st pauls
The moot community held our first ever service to commit to our rhythm of life. The Bishop of London led the service which took place in St Paul's Cathedral.
It was a really fantastic evening. Thanks to everyone involved. To Aaron, Doerthe, Ian, Kat and Phillipa for pulling the liturgy together, for Clare and Kat for doing the readings, Jonny, Jim and Philip for praying for our community and for all those who helped set-up (particularly Andrew and Mike) and set-down. And thanks to Jonny for the pics.
I found the service very moving and was again struck by our the provocative and challenging words of our rhythm of life. As we as a community try to live out these 'values' I hope and pray that we would a sign of hope and life in our city.
