Praise for Lubavitch primary

The Lubavitch Boys’ Primary School in Stamford Hill has been praised for its Jewish studies, including its use of information technology in the subject.

Pikuach, the Jewish inspection service overseen by the Board of the Deputies, gave the state-aided school a “good” rating for its religious teaching.

The inspection report noted that “high outcomes were evident across a range of children with differing abilities”.

Pupils’ learning was aided by “imaginative and interactive” use of IT.

Pikuach said that a number of aspects of Jewish studies were “outstanding” — reading, the Chumash curriculum, children’s overall spiritual and moral development and “accurate and beautifully presented” writing in Hebrew script.

“Snippets of ethical lessons permeate the day, even in the dining room during lunch,” Pikuach reported.
Meanwhile, the school said that Ofsted inspectors, who visited last week, had acknowleged that their previous recommendations for improvement in secular education were being implemented.
Executive head Fraidel Sudak said: “We are constantly working on raising the standards across the school and the recent reports nicely reflect the good progress being made.”
