Beis Rochel d’Satmar Girls’ School is an independent day school that provides education for girls and boys between the ages of three and 19 years. The pupils are from the Satmar community of Orthodox Judaism, but there are also girls and boys from other Chassidic communities and the Yemen. Girls and boys are educated in different departments. The sixth form admits girls only. There are three key administrators with overall operational responsibility for the different departments in the school, which are the full-time early years provision for girls, the junior and senior departments for girls, the full-time early years and junior department for boys, and the seminary (sixth form) for girls only. Each department has its own headteacher and curriculum advisers who are responsible for their curriculum area. The afternoon English curriculum consists of English, mathematics, science up to Year 9, history, geography, art, textiles (sewing) and physical education. Personal, social and health education is taught across the curriculum in line with the school’s religious ethos. In the early years, the curriculum is planned around the yearly cycle of the Torah (Jewish Law), Sidos (a portion of the Torah), Yomin Tovin (festivals) and Mitvos (commandments). This is aligned to the required areas of learning. In the infant, junior and senior girls’ departments, Kodesh (study of the traditional Hebrew texts) is taught in the morning in Yiddish, and Chol (secular studies) in the afternoon. Chol covers the National Curriculum subjects, with English used as the language of instruction. In the boys’ department, Kodesh subjects are taught until 4.00pm, with Chol subjects taught from 4.00pm to 6.00pm. In the sixth form seminary, a range of courses is offered. There is no provision for the teaching of A-level subjects. The majority of pupils speak Yiddish as their first language and English as an additional language. Seventeen pupils are registered as having disabilities and/or special educational needs. Fourteen have statements of special educational needs. The school does not charge fees from Reception upwards, but parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution to the school if they are able to. The school charges fees for the Nursery provision. The school had its last full inspection in February 2012. A material change inspection was carried out at the same time. Its purpose was to report on the incorporation into the school of a boys’ department on separate premises. After two monitoring visits the building met the regulatory requirements. The emergency visit to inspect the temporary premises and welfare, health and safety of pupils in January 2015 for the temporary premises did not meet all of the independent standards. The boys have now moved into the new building. The school does not make use of any off-site provision and does not enter pupils early for examinations. The proprietor has responsibility for the governance of the school.
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
