Welcome to Bury and Whitefield Jewish Primary School
“Your child’s journey to a brighter future starts here.”

Bury and Whitefield Jewish Primary School and Nursery is committed to providing a caring, welcoming and secure environment, in which all children feel a sense of belonging; are motivated to work to the best of their ability and where the unique needs and achievements of each child are recognised. We aim to provide a curriculum which is relevant, balanced and in line with statutory requirements. Through the teaching of Judaism according to Halacha, the promotion of Jewish values, the state of Israel, and the celebration of Jewish worship our children thrive and grow. We hope to foster in our children, a love and understanding of their Jewish faith and heritage.

The five elements that underpin our core values are:

Simcha (Joy and Happiness) –
We’re happy when we’re learning, we’re learning when we’re happy.

Middos (Character Development) –
We are kind and we do the best we can in all areas of school life.

Achdus (Unity, Bringing People Together & Unity) –
We work together to make our school a community.

Ruach (Creating a Positive Atmosphere) –
We all help to make our school a lovely place to be.

Torah (Our Guide to Life) –
Learning, thinking, living Torah.
