Kerem Primary School has allowed pupils from across all year groups to return to socially-distanced classrooms from Monday.

The private Jewish primary school in Hampstead Garden Suburb, which shares its space with Norrice Lea Synagogue, has implemented protective bubbles of up to 15 pupils.

Headteacher Naomi Simon, acknowledged on Wednesday “the challenge of opening classrooms has been stressful for all school leaders, with the intrinsic desire to educate as many children as possible in school.”

“Every headteacher recognises how vital being in school is for all children from both an academic and social perspective,  she said.

She added: “As a senior leadership team, we identified early on that with the right forward planning, we would be able to utilise our staffing and space to be able to offer every child in the school the chance to come back in the safest possible way, once it was allowed.

“We are fortunate to have  hard working staff and the support of the governing body, chaired by Samantha Leek, and parents to make this possible.”
