Values and Ethos

  • Wolfson Hillel Jewish Primary School values every child in a caring Jewish environment.
  • By working in partnership with parents, we engage children on an exciting learning journey to develop their spiritual, moral, intellectual, creative, social, emotional and physical potential.
  • We aim to equip children with the skills to become confident in their Jewish identity, able to take their place in the wider community.
  • We run a rich values curriculum, based on the words of Rabbi Hillel:
  • Myself- If I am not for myself, who will be for me? אִם אֵין אֲנִי לִי-מִי לִי
  • My Relationships- If I am only for myself, what am I? מָה אֲנִי  וּכְשֶׁאֲנִי לְעַצְמִי
  • My  Future- And if not now,  when?וְאִם לֹא עַכְשָׁיו אֵימָתָי  


To create a safe, supportive and nurturing environment built on trusting relationships between children, staff, parents and the wider community. The school strives to understand each individual and unlock every child’s potential, by delivering an outstanding and ambitious curriculum for all through forward-thinking pedagogical practice, excellent facilities and resources, and creative, passionate staff. Children are taught to be proud of and understand Jewish identity and to support their Jewish spiritual development so that they become well-rounded Jewish British citizens. Children are provided opportunities to shine academically, socially and emotionally so that they leave Wolfson Hillel confident and ready for the next stage of their lives.
