School Description

Bnois Jerusalem Girls School is an independent Orthodox Jewish day school in the London Borough of Hackney. The school caters for girls aged two to 16. The school consists of early years, infant, junior and senior departments. The school’s last standard inspection took place in June 2018, when the school was judged inadequate. Independent school standards in parts 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 8 were unmet. The school had a progress monitoring inspection in March 2019, when some of the unmet standards were met. Since the last inspection, curriculum advisers have been appointed to work alongside the headteachers in the separate school departments. Inspection report: Bnois Jerusalem Girls School 10–12 December 2019 7 Information about this inspection We carried out this inspection under section 109(1) and (2) of the Education and Skills Act 2008. The purpose of the inspection is to advise the Secretary of State for Education about the school’s suitability for continued registration as an independent school. The school has failed to meet the independent school standards. These are the requirements of the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014. I met with the headteacher and heads of the school’s separate infant, junior and senior departments regarding the quality of education. We held additional discussions with other senior and subject leaders. We focused deeply on reading, mathematics, PSHE education and geography. We visited classes, looked at pupils’ work and held discussions with teachers and subject leaders. We met with safeguarding leaders and scrutinised case files and the school’s record of pre-employment checks on staff. We met with the local authority early years adviser. We met with four members of the governing body. We reviewed a range of documentation including curriculum plans, teaching resources and records of safeguarding, health and safety, and behaviour. We did not speak to pupils in lessons, around the school or in separate groups as part of the subject focus. This was at the insistence of the headteacher and governors.

Early Years Foundation Stage Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some Inspection report: Bnois Jerusalem Girls School 10–12 December 2019 10 common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read (1.12). Providers must have regard to the government’s statutory guidance ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015’ and to the ‘Prevent duty guidance for England and Wales 2015’. All schools are required to have regard to the government’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ statutory guidance, and other childcare providers may also find it helpful to refer to this guidance. If providers have concerns about children’s safety or welfare, they must notify agencies with statutory responsibilities without delay. This means the local children’s social care services and, in emergencies, the police (3.7).
