Following the judgment in the Supreme Court Jewish schools have to adopt a religious practice test for admissions.
Some schools will be asking you to complete a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP), which includes verification of synagogue attendance.
You should check the websites of the schools in which you are interested to see their specific requirements, but many are looking for attendance at synagogue.
Entry to Jewish Schools September 2018
Once again we have procedures in place to help those wishing to apply to attend Jewish Schools in September 2018 to obtain a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP).
This year, the date that eligibility for attendance at synagogue services commenced is:
6th May 2017.
If you wish to have your child’s attendance at synagogue recorded so that we can verify attendance for the CRP, you needed to apply to join the attendance register.
If you have not yet registered, you can still apply by clicking on the link below. Please note that there might a small delay in dealing with registrations once the process has begun (i.e. after May).
Once you have registered, you will be emailed details of our online CRP system which enables you to monitor the attendance record of your child(ren). Click on the link below to access this system:
If you have not received your login details, or if you have any other questions, please contact us:
or call Gerry Shaer on 0208 959 1137 extension 3
Before the process commenced, we held two CRP introductory evenings to explain the process and to offer the community an alternative to the morning Shabbat service. These presentations can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
