Welcome From The Head Teacher
Together We Grow!
Welcome to Nancy Reuben Primary School (NRPS)!
Our school motto is "Together We Grow" and we are the most incredibly cohesive school community comprising staff, parents, children and governors all sharing the same common goal to be the best we can. We really do grow together!
This website gives a taster of the school but to find out more, we invite you to come and see first-hand. It will be my pleasure to show you around and happily answer your questions. You will experience the unique warmth that pervades our school for which Nancy Reuben Primary School has become so well known over the last 20 years.
Our pupils are very important to us and so, as well as prioritising academic progress in Kodesh and secular, we constantly strive to make sure that pupils develop socially in terms of self esteem and confidence. Mental health and well-being are at the top of our agenda with a raft of school-wide initiatives. We encourage our children to have a go at things and to develop resilience. We hope that NRPS pupils will develop a great sense of pride in themselves, their achievements and will also be responsible citizens in the school and wider community too. We teach the children about tolerance and to respect differences in society. In October 2017 Ofsted said "The school is effective in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and preparing them for life in modern Britain."
Visitors to the school always compliment the children on their good manners and outstanding behaviour. We work closely alongside parents as partners in your child’s education. As a staff, we hope that you will become friends as we move through school together supporting your child as they grow together with us. Middot (good character development) is central to our teaching and expectations. We have Stars of the Week in Secular and Kodesh every week and those children delight in attending the weekly Head Teacher's Tea Party an opportunity for me to talk to the children about their successes in the week and school in general. I take a keen personal interest in the welfare and well-being of every child from Playgroup to Year 6 and know them all quite well!
Our school is an accredited member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA). Founded in 1878, the ISA represents the interests of 541 members leading the best independent schools across the UK and beyond. ISA members value innovation and inspiration, integrity and high standards, hard work and responsibility. Accreditation is only awarded to Heads if their schools meet the highest standards including rigorous inspection. The ISA represents the best of independent education and NRPS is proud to be an ISA school since June 2019.
I look forward to welcoming you into our warm and nurturing family oriented school - a school where your child will absolutely flourish and be encouraged to reach for the stars. We are in the heart of thriving Hendon. Come and see for yourself!
