Kisharon is 'satisfactory' says Ofsted

February 11, 2010

The Kisharon special needs school in Golders Green has been graded educationally “satisfactory” by Ofsted.

It was rated as “good” for both spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and welfare, health and safety.

Ofsted reported “a positive start with the new Early Years Foundation stage framework” and that overall, “the school has made satisfactory progress since the previous inspection and now meets all the regulations for independent schools”.

Suggested improvements included further curriculum development to meet the needs of pupils from the full range of learning disabilities and maximising opportunities for the integration of religious and secular studies.

Principal Rabbi Yitzchak Freeman — who took charge after a leadership restructuring in September — said the report was one “we can be proud of, but we are not complacent”.
