We are proud of the extent and variety of our Learning Programmes here at SPS, and there are many learning opportunities for young and old alike.
The teachers at Religion School aim to provide a warm
and friendly environment for all our children.
The aim of our syllabus is that children in the religion school will gain the knowledge of what it means to be a Liberal
Jew, the skills to follow a Liberal Jewish lifestyle, an appreciation of our Jewish values and a real proficiency with
and deep understanding of the Hebrew of our prayers and Torah.
They will also realise that they are part of a religion that encompasses many different branches of Judaism.
Ultimately, with a secure identity, they can participate fully in the open society as confident Jews.
With these objectives always in mind, the School's syllabus covers The Bible and Jewish literature, customs and traditions,
festivals, Shabbat, life cycle, history and Hebrew.
Children join Religion School at 4 years old and continue to 15 years old after completing their Kabbalat Torah.
