Lubav­itch girls earn good Of­sted

The Jewish Chronicle - - EDUCATION -

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.
