Lubavitch girls praised by Ofsted
The state-aided Lubavitch Senior Girls’ School in Stamford Hill has been rated good in all areas by Ofsted after an inspection last month.
Pupils describe the school “as like being part of a family where everyone knows each other”, inspectors reported. Leaders “have established a culture of care that is modelled by adults and practised by pupils”.
Ofsted highlighted the “warm and respectful” relationships between staff and pupils, well-focused support for students with special needs and the support for younger children provided by older pupils.
Leaders of the school, which has 124 pupils, “prepare pupils well for life outside of school and in modern Britain,” Ofsted said. “For example, pupils learn about different types of relationships and how other people live.”
Inspectors commended the school’s careers programme which, among other things, provides information on university courses and training, Sixthformers can now choose from a wider range of courses since the last inspection in 2018.
While the curriculum is generally well-designed and ambitious, inspectors see room for improvement in a few subjects such as music and design technology.
Girls are “encouraged to be curious about the world, ask questions and express themselves with clarity and confidence. Behaviour is generally calm and allows everyone to learn”.
They “read often and widely. This helps them to learn about other communities and cultures, and enriches their vocabulary and language use.”
