TWO STRICTLY Ortho­dox in­de­pen­dent schools have re­ceived pos­i­tive re­ports from in­spec­tors.

The Gateshead Cheder Pri­mary School, which has 190 boys from three to 14, was ranked as a good school, which of­fered “rich learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties” and where pupils made strong progress.

Pupils were “very well pre­pared” for life in mod­ern Bri­tain, while the school’s lead­er­ship “recog­nise di­ver­sity and pro­mote the rights of pro­tected groups” un­der the 2010 Equal­ity Act, Of­sted said.

In­spec­tors, who re­turned to the Ateres Girls High School after its inad­e­quate rat­ing last year, found im­prove­ments in the cur­ricu­lum, par­tic­u­larly in maths.

Of­sted noted that the school, which ed­u­cates 229 girls from 11 to 16, had sought as­sis­tance from a neigh­bour­ing state school, Em­manuel Col­lege.
