Jewish free school in Mill Hill celebrates first ever Ofsted report
Pupils and staff at a Jewish free school in Mill Hill are celebrating after receiving their very first Ofsted report.
Despite Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School having only being open for four terms in temporary accommodation, the education watchdog gave the school the second-highest 'good' rating and said pupils in every class were making good progress in reading and writing.
Inspectors said they had attended many lessons where they saw examples of 'outstanding' teaching.
The school also received praise for its 'outstanding' progress in teaching children with special educational needs.
Chairman of governors Adam Dawson said: “It is a significant acknowledgement of the achievement that has been made so far and a fantastic foundation for us to build on in the future.
“This is only the beginning and there is much still to strive to achieve.”
The school will move to its permanent site in Daws Lane in time for the start of the next academic year in September.
