Jewish Studies is taught within the school in a variety of ways, fostering an understanding and knowledge of the Jewish heritage and religion. Tefillah is an important part of each school day. Through our Jewish Studies lessons we aim to instil within each child a love of Judaism, a strong sense of Jewish identity and encourage the practice of living Judaism. This is also achieved through the whole school environment and atmosphere. Topics covered include weekly parashah, chaggim, Jewish living as well as Chumash and Rashi in Key Stage Two. Music plays a central role in our teaching with the children learning a good repertoire of Jewish songs. In Key Stage Two we follow the Jewish Curriculum Project Chumash curriculum. The children participate in extra-curricular Jewish Studies events.
Pupils may experience special needs at any time during their education. Their needs are identified through a series of measures including observing them in the classroom, diagnostic testing and through close liaison between class teachers, our SENCO and parents.
Our teachers are skilled in providing support for children of all abilities and needs within the classroom and we also have trained support staff that are able to deliver specialist programmes to individuals or small groups.
We work closely with a variety of outside agencies such as Speech and Language Therapy and Educational Psychology services to gain advice and resources for our pupils.
As a school we aim to meet the needs of all our pupils, enabling every child to reach their potential. Rigorous assessment procedures enable us to identify pupils who are very able or talented. Class teachers plan for these pupils so that they experience learning which matches their abilities. Questioning is used to challenge the more able thinkers. The pupils are encouraged to explore a topic in added depth or to apply their learning in more complex ways encouraging their creativity and intellectual curiosity.
