Governor Workshops 8 November 2021

Pikuach - a new focus for inspection
Jeffrey Leader, Director of Pikuach

An overview of Pikuach’s new inspection framework.
Jeffrey explained why Pikuach is shifting its focus from inspecting the acquisition of Jewish knowledge to the impact Jewish learning makes on young Jewish lives. Pikuach believes that our children need to find an emotional connection to their learning and recognise its personal relevance. If not, everything they learn will remain detached from their lives.
