Brodetsky Primary School was founded as a Jewish Day School under the auspices of the SCOPUS Jewish Educational Trust, to provide a balanced secular and Jewish education for children in an environment which complies with Orthodox Jewish requirements. The Governing Body will have regard to any representation made to it by SCOPUS relating to the religious curriculum and the teaching of Hebrew as a modern language.
The ethos of the School derives from the objective to imbue its pupils with an understanding, love and respect for the Jewish religion, a knowledge of Jewish history, both Biblical and modern,a love of their heritage and respect for traditional Torah values, especially with regard to the family, and the centrality of Biblical and modern Israel as a significant component of a rounded Jewish education. Religious education is provided in accordance with Orthodox Jewish teachings from a Modern Orthodox perspective. Therefore, any question as to the belief and practice of the Jewish Faith shall be referred to the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Nations of the British Commonwealth, whose decision shall be final.
