Stam­ford Hill school scores well with Of­sted in­spec­tors

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY 21 - BY SI­MON ROCKER

A CHA­SIDIC girls’ pri­mary school in Stam­ford Hill has im­pressed Of­sted in­spec­tors.

Bnos Zion of Bobov, an in­de­pen­dent school for 158 girls aged from three to 12 serv­ing the Bobov Cha­sidic com­mu­nity, was rated good af­ter a visit from Of­sted, with the behaviour and care of pupils found to be out­stand­ing.

Pupils “achieve well” at key stages dur­ing their time at the school and made good progress in read­ing and writ­ing, with an ex­cel­lent grasp of spell­ing and gram­mar.

In the nurs­ery, in­spec­tors found that “most chil­dren are at the early stages of learn­ing English. All rapidly de­velop flu­ency in English and be­come bilin­gual, with Yid­dish as their first lan- guage. A num­ber are mul­ti­lin­gual. By the end of re­cep­tion, most chil­dren have made good progress and ex­ceed a good level of devel­op­ment.”

But over­all, work in sci­ence showed less at­ten­tion than in maths and English.

The few pupils with spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs made fast progress be­cause of the ef­forts made to help them, in­spec­tors noted. The school’s lead­ers had shown a “de­ter­mined drive to im­prove the qual­ity of teach­ing” since the last in­spec­tion.
