Lubavitch girls earn good Ofsted
THE LUBAVITCH junior girls’ school in Stamford Hill has maintained its status as a good school after a fresh inspection from Ofsted.
Esther Kesselman, acting headteacher for the past nine months at the stateaided Lubavitch Ruth Lunzer Primary School, was told she had provided “effective leadership”.
“You have identified and tackled weaker teaching and supported teachers to improve their practice,” Ofsted said. “Consequently, school assessment information indicates that pupils are making faster progress.”
The school first earned a good rating from inspectors in 2013.
“Staff are positive role models to pupils and demonstrate the values of tolerance and respect for others,” Ofsted reported after the latest visit.
Pupils behaved well, showed high levels of confidence and were keen to talk about their work.
The ablest pupils were making accelerated progress in maths, although the brightest in English needed more challenging books, Ofsted said.
Previously low attendance rates were now close to the national average.
