Mosaic rated 'outstanding' by Pikuach


Mosaic Jewish Primary School has been rated “outstanding” in its first Pikuach inspection – just a few months after it won the same top rating from Ofsted.

The school, which opened in 2013 as the first of its kind in south London, was praised in all areas for its Jewish education, with inspectors noting that “spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding because the staff and pupils show great respect for each other and for the ethos of the school”.

They added: “The Jewish learning curriculum is tailored to meet the specific needs of this unique school. The challenge is to deliver an integrated curriculum that best fits the diverse family backgrounds of the children".

The school, which moved from a temporary site in Wimbledon to its permanent premises in Roehampton in September, is a cross-communal Jewish primary which caters for children of all backgrounds, Jewish and non-Jewish.

Headteacher Kate Baum said: “My amazing team is working together to ensure that the Jewish ethos of the school pervades all areas of learning and teaching.

“The outcome of this inspection proves that our commitment to supporting our staff and our parents in improving their own Jewish knowledge for the benefit of our children has been a worthwhile investment.”
