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 the wonderful education we provide, both Jewish and secular.


Rita Alak-LeviChildren are taught in classroom environments that are warm and nurturing.  Dedicated staff encourage our pupils to develop individual strengths and to realise their full potential –  academically, spiritually, artistically, physically, and morally.

Our provision balances academic learning and allows for the development of enquiring minds.  Academic learning is enhanced by a vast variety 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.

Headteacher of Hertsmere Jewish Primary School
