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.
I have worked at this wonderful school for 3 years and it is an honour to take on the role of Interim Head this year.
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.
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 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 the recent introduction of Forest School, 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.
