The new head of the Independent Day School in Hendon will be Yosh Radomsky, the deputy head of North West London Jewish Day School.
He will take charge of the Orthodox primary from September, succeeding Jodi Schajer, who left at the end of the spring term after nearly five years at the helm. Mr Radomsky’s “suitability for the role was evident from the outset of what was a robust selection process”, governors’ chair Michael Paluch told parents. “He is a dynamic educator who in his current role leads on assessment, curriculum and teaching.
“He is particularly passionate about pupil development and progress. In addition to driving high standards for teachers and students in the classroom, he has instituted successful co-curricular programmes at NWLJDS including a skills and volunteering achievement scheme and school newspaper.”
Away from the classroom, he is “a father of four, an avid reader, theatre fan and Arsenal supporter”.
Mr Radomsky said he felt “privileged to have been chosen to continue to develop this fantastic school on to the next stage of its journey.
“I am really looking forward to becoming a part of the IJDS family and working with the dedicated and talented staff, supportive and proactive governors and parents to help ensure that every child is happy and able to achieve their full potential.”
