Two Jewish school in north west London said they will temporarily close their doors this week amid fears for their students’ safety.

Both Torah Vodaas Primary School in Brent Park Road, near Staples Corner, and Ateres Beis Yaakov Primary School in Edgware Road, Colindale, have reportedly informed parents today (October 12) that it will be shut.

According to a report from Sky News, the schools will not reopen until Monday.

Sky News has seen a letter to parents, where Rabbi Feldman of Torah Vodaas said there was “no specific threat” despite the measures.

Jewish schools have been taking extra precautions for their students following conflict between Hamas and Israel.

The Jewish Free School (JFS) in Kenton is one of many school taking action, temporarily allowing children to not wear blazers with the school logo.

David Moody, the headteacher, said that Jewish protection charity the Community Security Trust (CST) has deployed “extra security” to ensure safe travel to all students.

In an email to parents, seen by The Times, a school spokesperson said: “The most important thing is to ensure the safe passage of students between home and school and to make sure that this school is set up to care for our children during the school day.”

Part of the changes reportedly include no after-school detentions this week so that the children are able to take the school buses, but also allowing school blazers to be optional.

Police have also announced measures to prevent antisemitic attacks.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Londoners will continue to see officers on the streets, in our communities across London in the days to come following days to reassure and protect.

“We have zero tolerance for any hate crimes. Anyone with concerns, or who has witnessed any offences should speak to an officer or contact police online, via 101 or call 999 in an emergency.”
