Pri­mary proves it is sec­ond to none

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY LEON SY­MONS

A PRI­MARY school praised by gov­ern­ment in­spec­tors ear­lier this year has scooped a ma­jor award from a na­tional news­pa­per.

North Cheshire Jewish Pri­mary School was this week named state pri­mary school of the year for 2007 by the Sun­day Times.

Last year, the school fin­ished top of the news­pa­per’s Top 25 Pri­mary Schools ta­ble, a list based on the gov­ern­ment’s stan­dard as­sess­ment test re­sults. This year it fin­ished sec­ond, al­though it still achieved 100 per cent in all the SATs sub­jects.

Head teacher Norma Mas­sel said: “We are all very proud of our chil­dren who have done well in the past and con­tinue to work hard.”

Mrs Mas­sel, who has been in charge for eight years, said: “We had a fan­tas­tic Of­sted re­port in April, which found that the school was out­stand­ing in ev­ery de­part­ment.

“We have very good teach­ers who work hard. The par­ents and the par­ent-teacher as­so­ci­a­tion are very sup­port­ive of ev­ery­thing we do and they ex­pect a lot from their school.”

Fol­low­ing North Cheshire in the State Pri­mary SATs ta­ble was King David Ju­nior in Manch­ester, which came 21st — a drop of six places from last year.
