We were privileged to hold an amazing Hachnasat Sefer Torah on Tuesday. It was such an exciting and special morning and we look forward to using and learning from our Sefer Torah for years and years to come. We thank the Weinstein and Sheldon families for donating it to us and for all they have done for our school, and we thank Chief Rabbi Mirvis, Rabbi Lawrence and Jeremy Newman for addressing us. Watch the video here and see more photos on our Facebook page. Mazal tov!
Our school’s architect, Square Feet Architects, has won Barnet’s 2017 ‘Delivering for Barnet Architectural Award’ for the best non-residential alteration. Mazal tov and huge thanks to Dan Leon, Angela Kamiel and all the team at Square Feet Architects, and Zoe Silverman of ZED Architects, shown here with the award.
According to The Sunday Times’ new ranking of state primary schools, Sacks Morasha is the joint 148th best state primary in the whole country – and the best Jewish state primary in London! The league table looks at aggregated average scaled Sats scores in reading, maths, and grammar, punctuation and spelling taken by Year 6 children in 2016. We are so proud of our children and teachers for this amazing achievement. (If you’re a Times’ subscriber, you can see The Sunday Times report for full details and to search the top 500.)
Here are details of three PTA events coming up in 2018.
Sports event: June 2018

Mishloach Manot: Purim 2018
Our Mishloach Manot are always a flair of creative genius and a conversation point. Our committee work really hard to think of new and exciting ideas and themes, and there’s doubt that next year will be no different. We can’t say too much more as it is all very top secret until Purim for the BIG reveal.
Yom Haatzmaut: May 2018
We are excited to be working on some very special activities for the children to celebrate Israel’s birthday next year. From falafels to Israeli dancing, we are hoping to have a wonderful day of fun.
Seven members of the school’s Netball Club made their debut at the Year 5 Maccabi Interschool Netball Tournament at Immanuel College last week. They played very well, winning three matches and drawing three, and represented the school impeccably. For more recent news, visit our Facebook page.
