Lubavitch girls’ school earns good marks from Ofsted

Inspectors praise passionate teachers and curious pupils who are keen to learn


Lubavitch Primary Girls' School

Ofsted has ranked the Lubavitch Girls Primary in Stamford Hill as a good school which encourages pupils to be “community-minded citizens”.

Children delighted in coming to school, were keen to learn and tried hard in their lessons, while “passionate” teachers gave clear explanations, inspectors offered.

The ambition of the curriculum at the state-aided primary had increased in recent years and pupils were “curious learners”.

They read a range of well-chosen texts, including poetry, and enjoyed being creative in their writing.

Older pupils were encouraged to be responsible leaders, while the school council organised fundraising events for international humanitarian charities.

However, Ofsted said that opportunities to learn about other faiths and cultures could be better planned and the early years section did not promote learning well.

Judith Nemeth, executive headteacher of the Lubavitch Multi-Academy Trust, said, W”e are delighted that we have managed to acquire a strong good in the Primary Girls’ School matching the achievements of the Lubavitch Senior Girls’ school and recent Pikuach inspections in both schools.

“Parents who send to their children to Lubavitch MAT schools can be assured of a global good education in both sectors.”

The school was looking to address the concerns about early years “immediately” with a new head for that section, she said, “with anticipated implementation ready for September 2024”.
