Shalom Noam Primary School became state-aided in 2019. It was established in 1999 with 5 children and has grown to over 200 children. The school has moved to beautiful new premises in Burnt Oak.
Shalom Noam provides the orthodox Jewish community in north west London with access to a high-quality education that meets the National Curriculum as well as an excellent religious education in accordance with orthodox Jewish law and practice. The school endeavours to achieve this by ensuring that its students receive a broad and balanced curriculum and strive for excellent academic achievement in a warm and caring environment. We aspire to inspire our children to love learning.
Additionally, Shalom Noam seeks to support the spiritual development of the children by imbuing each child with a love of orthodox Jewish practice and Torah values. The development of positive personality traits is integral to our ethos. Regular prayers, learning of the Torah and a focus on Middos (positive character traits) are the core of our Jewish Studies curriculum.
Shalom Noam aims to provide children with a superior Kodesh education without compromising on National Curriculum subjects. The school offers the children a broad and balanced curriculum and weaves the core British Values into its teaching. Both the Kodesh and Chol (National Curriculum teaching) support children in becoming ready for life in Modern Britain. Shalom Noam aims for its children to be proud of their own identity as Jewish children and encourage them to be respectful and tolerant of those around them.
The parent body is comprised of a range of religious, professional people who are deeply invested in their children’s Kodesh and Chol education and provide examples of how to contribute to life in Modern Britain whilst maintaining our age-old traditions and beliefs.
