Wolfson Hillel Primary School welcomes parents and children to our warm, happy and supportive School in Southgate, originally opened in 1992 to encourage and stimulate all children to fulfill their individual potential, imbued within a love and understanding of Torah and Israel.
Wolfson Hillel is a two form entry voluntary aided Jewish nursery and primary school with a maximum pupil roll of 470 whose ethos is to respond to the 'whole child' spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially as well as intellectually.
We aim to provide a safe, secure and happy environment in which our pupils will flourish combining Jewish values, practices and beliefs, alongside the National Curriculum. Test results show our continued academic success and the last Ofsted Report underlines the effectiveness of our approach.
Our curriculum concentrates on the skills young people will need in the twenty-first century: linguistic, mathematical, scientific and technological, encompassing our newly built "state of the art" IT facility, whilst providing opportunities for children to develop through the expressive arts in music, art and drama. There are also a host of lunchtime and after-school activities to extend and enrich their lives.
We promote the values, knowledge and skills that will enrich their Jewish lives and help them become responsible members of the Community. All our children are special, whatever their capabilities and needs, and every parent is a valued member of the school community whose contribution is encouraged within our active PTA or by helping within the school.
'Wolfson Hillel is a very good school which serves its community well. Pupils have very positive attitudes to learning. Their behaviour is a strength of the School and contributes to the good learning ethos. They are polite, courteous and show consideration towards each other. They take responsibility and show initiative. Although Jewish Studies accounts for just 20% of the available curriculum time, its overall influence on the pupils Jewish education is far greater because of the extraordinary successful cross-curricular links between Jewish and secular subjects.'
