I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our school website. I hope that it gives you an insight into our ethos, values, curriculum, and provision.
This is my third year as the Head Teacher of this wonderful school and it an honour to lead the school.
Kerem School is a Modern Orthodox, Zionist school. With a proud tradition of high academic standards, we have a keen eye on the future, a broad range of extra-curricular activities, and excellent pastoral care. We take pride in our community and are committed to ensuring that every child is valued as an individual and that parents and families are equal partners in all aspects of school life.
Our school is housed on two sites with our Nursery and Reception class sharing a building with an exciting outdoor area and the rest of the school on a separate site.
At Kerem we have the highest expectations of all our children, both academically – our pupils consistently achieve well above national expectations – and socially. We place great emphasis on their personal, social and emotional development by fostering caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self-discipline and self-confidence. The children are encouraged to be creative, independent thinkers, to undertake areas of responsibility and to grow as leaders. Our Kerem Characteristics are at the heart of what we do and we believe that these characteristics support and enhance children’s learning and personal development. These characteristics are collaboration, curiosity, flexibility of mind, humour, initiative, middot, persistence, reflectiveness, resilience and risk taking.
Our approach to learning is highly personalised, driven by our passionate team of staff who place great emphasis on ensuring the needs of every child are met, their abilities understood and their aspirations encouraged. We provide a calm, focused and mutually respectful environment, one that is conducive to purposeful learning and creates a safe and supportive atmosphere for all.
Our enriched curriculum, which includes attendance at Forest School lessons, seeks to prepare our pupils for life as responsible Jewish citizens by promoting British values whilst cultivating a global perspective of the challenges facing us in the 21st Century.
Our pupils enjoy learning because we make learning fun and exciting by providing a wide range of opportunities to satisfy their hunger to learn; to help them achieve and ultimately exceed their potential.
We would be delighted for you to have the opportunity to see us in action in order that you can see for yourself what makes us proud to be part of an exciting and successful school community. If you would like to arrange a visit then please contact Karen in the office on 020 8455 0909 and she will be happy to organise this for you.
