Wolfson Hillel is a Jewish primary school which draws its pupils primarily from the Jewish community in North London and Hertfordshire. It is larger than the average sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action and school action plus is well below the national average. However, the proportion with statements of special educational needs is currently above average. Most pupils are of White British heritage and the rest are from a range of backgrounds, primarily Israeli. A small proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language but few are at the early stages of learning the language. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is well below average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support, in this school, pupils known to be entitled to free school meals. The school meets the current government floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school does not use any alternative provision. There is a private nursery on site which was not part of this inspection. Following the previous inspection, the long-standing headteacher left the school. Since that time there has been a number of changes in leadership. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2012.
