Positive HMI (Ofsted) Visit
We received an HMI Monitoring inspection at the end of the Autumn Term and were pleased that the report recognised the progress and the measures that the school has taken to raise the standards within the school.
The Jewish Chronicle picked up on the positive inspection and reported it in their paper.
The state-aided Lubavitch Junior Boys School in Hackney is on the road to recovery nearly two years after it was rated inadequate by inspectors and placed in special measures.
Inspectors criticised the narrowness of the curriculum and the teaching of basic skills such as reading and writing.
But standards have been rising under the direction of interim headteacher Robert Leach, Ofsted reported after a recent return visit.
The “strong and ambitious leadership” of Mr Leach, the former headteacher of Sinai Primary School, who was drafted in nearly a year ago, was “successfully transforming the culture of the school,” Ofsted said.
