Established in 2012, Rimon is a warm, nurturing and inclusive Modern Orthodox Jewish primary school based in Golders Green (NW11).
Rimon is a high-achieving, academically rigorous school and at the heart of everything we do, is our commitment to support all of our children to develop to the very best of their abilities – all while prioritising the social and emotional well-being of each, individual child.
Our Guiding Principles
Our Guiding Principles
Our Guiding Principles underpin the way in which we manage and deliver our provision
1. Rigorous pursuit of academic achievement
We believe children can only develop their full potential both academically and creatively if they have mastered the basic skills of literacy, numeracy, and communication. The curriculum and staff structure is developed with a view to ensuring that the school’s academic results compete with the best available.
2. Committed approach to the teaching of Judaism
The Jewish educational, historical and cultural experience provides a model that has underpinned societies all over the world for generations. Rimon is committed to ensuring that children are equipped with the tools required to feel comfortable and interested in the world of Judaism
3. International Awareness
Rimon strives to be a local school for a global city, where an appreciation of international issues will be ingrained in multiple elements of the curriculum.
4. Preservation of the environment - Tikun Olam
Judaism teaches that we have a responsibility to take care of the world for future generations. Rimon is committed to ingraining these values in all children and staff.
5. A commitment to excellent SEN provision
All children, regardless of ability, have the right to make progress and achieve their potential. We believe that wherever possible children with special education needs should have those needs met in a mainstream classroom and that having those children in the classroom benefits all the children in the class.

It is a centre of educational excellence with a focus on maintaining the highest possible ratio of teaching staff to students. Through this method, we take an inclusive approach to enable every child to make the best possible progress.
We are focused on building strong relationships between school, the home and the community – a triangulation which is at the centre of a successful and transformative educational and Jewish environment.
