At North West, our curriculum sets out to challenge and excite our pupils. It is constantly evolving to reflect the needs of our pupils and the changing global society.
From the play-based start in Nursery and Reception, children become confident, articulate learners, rapidly acquiring the skills needed to read in both English and Hebrew, preparing them to become more autonomous learners as they progress into Year 1. From Year 1, there is a rigorous approach to the core subjects, with high academic expectations for all pupils. This is balanced by a breadth of curriculum with the non-core subjects; Arts, Humanities and Physical Education, and complemented with a dynamic Limmudei Kodesh curriculum.
Statutory Assessment Tests consistently place the school amongst the very highest achieving schools nationally.
Our Year 6 leavers graduate from North West exceptionally well-prepared for the Secondary Schools of their choice. Every year a significant number are offered places at the best selective Independent Schools. However, most of our pupils choose to continue their education in a Jewish school.
Schemes we follow:
We use the Letters and Sounds framework for phonic teaching.
