Reinforcement of learning at home is an important aspect of children’s education and development. Parents of pupils in the lower school (Reception to Year 2) are encouraged to read with their children daily, play number or word games with them, and to involve them in practical problems around the house. As pupils progress through Years 1 and 2, there will be spellings to be learnt at home and weekly homework in English and Mathematics. During these years, parents will be encouraged to support their children in the development of fluent and accurate Hebrew reading. The amount of homework will increase as pupils proceed through Years 3 to 6, and in these years homework will be set on a daily basis, allowing pupils to work and think independently of their teachers and to strengthen and extend the skills and knowledge which they have gained during their lessons.
Assessment and Reporting
Teachers use a variety of methods to assess the progress of pupils at the school, including everyday observation, the marking of written work, formal and informal testing as appropriate, evaluation of pupils’ oral contributions, assessment of the quality of their creative work, and awareness of pupils’ contribution to the broader life of the school community. The Prep School provides parents with objective, constructive and regular feedback on the progress of their children through written reports and informal and formal meetings with teachers. Parents are welcome to discuss any issue relating to their children with teachers at any time during the course of the year.
All pupils of the Prep School are expected to wear correct uniform at all times. Please click here to download a current uniform list.
Break and Lunch Arrangements
During all breaks, pupils play in a dedicated play area, where they are supervised by members of school staff who monitor general behaviour and ensure pupils’ safety. Pupils are permitted to bring a small, healthy and kosher snack for their morning break. They are also encouraged to bring water to school in a named water bottle. Drinking water is provided at lunch time and is available throughout the school day. All pupils are provided with kosher lunches. The weekly menus are changed on a termly basis and a menu for the upcoming Shavuot Term can be found here.
Lunches for 2012-13 will cost £156 per term (£468 annually)
The Prep School operates from 8.45 am. The school day for Reception and Year 1 pupils finishes at 3.30 pm. Older pupils will finish later but prior to the senior-school finishing time of 4.05 pm. The Senior School and Prep School term dates are synchronised.
