A Jewish school where everyone is welcome

A School for Everyone

Eden Primary warmly welcomes children from all backgrounds on an equal basis.

Please see our Admissions Policy for details.

Jewish teaching imbues the life of the school, but it is teaching that will be accessible and valuable for all.  It is about consideration, charity, respect, good deeds, history and stories – things that benefit everybody and are universal values.

All our children will be included in Jewish activities such as learning about festivals and speaking modern Hebrew, as well as in activities relating to other religions and cultures.  Our belief is that a Jewish identity can flourish in a multi-cultural context, and vice versa. All the children will also learn about other faiths and cultures too. Jewish teaching will make up approximately 17% of the entire curriculum.

The individual faiths and backgrounds of every child are respected equally, and all will be encouraged to share their own personal and family practices with their friends. The more variety we have in our school, the more there is for the children to learn.

By the time our pupils leave Eden, they will be knowledgeable about Judaism and other faiths, and they will carry that knowledge with them for the rest of their lives, adding to the store of experiences that they collect as they grow up. Their understanding of Hebrew will introduce them to learning a rich and rewarding modern living language.
