About HJPS

Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Hertsmere Jewish Primary School – HJPS. Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn about our school and its educational programme delivered through the Early Years Foundation Stage/National Curriculum for England as well as a tailor-made Jewish Studies syllabus – all personalised to meet the needs of every child!

mrissacsI am proud of HJPS’s success in educating pupils who become self-confident, compassionate, practising Jews as well as committed citizens. Our pupils and graduates are prepared for the academic and social challenges of the modern world; they have a strong connection to the Jewish people and the land of Israel, and they truly embody our motto of Learning, Giving and Growing.

Our curriculum in both secular and Judaic studies is engaging and challenging (please click here for our latest Pikuach report), presented in a classroom environment that is warm and nurturing. Guided by our senior leaders and a dedicated staff, pupils are encouraged to develop individual strengths and to realise their full potential – academically, spiritually, artistically, physically, and morally.

Our provision balances disciplines-based learning with child-centred inquiry. Academic learning is enhanced by a myriad of opportunities for children’s self-expression in the arts and sports. Propelled by their heritage and strong Jewish identity, our graduates are motivated to take their places as committed Jews in communities throughout the world.

Parents are our partners in the education of each child. We welcome parent involvement, whether it be assisting in the classroom, participating on committees, or enhancing their own Jewish learning through adult education opportunities.

I encourage you to find out more about HJPS, whether through the pages of our website, talking to friends and our current parents, or by visiting our school.
