Strong performance by Jewish primary schools in Sats tests

Twenty-four schools achieve results better than the national average

    The Independent Jewish Day School in Hendon was the best-performing Jewish state school in England, according to figures released by the Department for Education today.

    Rated according to the percentage of pupils who reached the expected standard for their age group in reading, writing and maths, the Orthodox primary was top of the Jewish table with 97 per cent.

    Akiva in Finchley, the country’s only designated Progressive school, and the Charedi Pardes House, also in Finchley, were second with 87 per cent of pupils reaching the standard.

    Jewish schools collectively achieved better results than any other faith group with 73 per cent of their pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths.

    Overall, 24 of the 31 Jewish schools in England did better than the country’s national average for state schools of 61 per cent, with seven Jewish schools below.

    Nationally, the average percentage of pupils achieving a higher level than the expected standard was nine per cent. Twenty-four Jewish schools exceeded that average.

    The Ruth Lunzer Lubavitch Junior Girls School in Hackney had the largest percentage of Jewish pupils attaining the higher standard with 31 per cent.

    At six other schools, 20 per cent or more pupils reached the higher standard – more than double the national average.

    The results were based on Sats tests taken by Year Six pupils in spring this year.

    Broughton Jewish Cassel-Fox in Manchester performed notably in that children made above average progress in reading and maths over the past four years and well above average progress in writing.

    At another Manchester school, North Cheshire, and at Pardes House, children made above average progress in all three areas.

    Pupils at the Independent Jewish Day and at Mathilda Marks-Kennedy in Edgware made well above average progress in both reading and in maths: at Wolfson Hillel in Enfield, well above average progress in reading and above average in maths; and at the strictly Orthodox Menorah in Golders Green, above average in reading and well above average in maths.

    Independent Jewish Day was ranked 58 out of 20,840 primary schools in England for progress made by children in reading.

    At King David Manchester, children made well above progress in maths and above average in reading: at the Charedi Yesoiday Hatorah in Manchester, well above average in writing and above average in maths; at Hasmonean Primary, well above average in reading and above average in maths: and at Akiva, above average in reading and maths.
