Chasidic girls school rated good by Ofsted

Inspectors say British values of respect and tolerance are promoted at Beis Malka in Salford

    An expanding school for Chasidic girls in Salford has achieved a good rating from Ofsted inspectors.

    The 253 pupils at Beis Malka aged from three to 15 learn Jewish studies in Yiddish in the morning and secular subjects in English in the afternoon.

    Despite the lack of a permanent head, the school was well-led, Ofsted reported.

    By the end of the primary stage, girls were reaching national expectations in maths and spelling although they lagged behind in reading and writing. Pupils with special needs made good progress.

    Although the curriculum was being broadened, it was restricted because “of the very limited use of technology in the Chasidic community”.

    Citizenship lessons made pupils aware “of different faiths and other lifestyles”, while British values of respect and tolerance were promoted across the school.
