Welcome to JCAT United in Learning
Jewish Community Academy Trust (JCAT) is an ambitious family of schools committed to embracing our Jewish values and identity as well as making a meaningful contribution to the Jewish community and wider society. We are united in learning and in delivering a high-quality, nurturing educational environment for all children.
At the end of a terrible week following the events in Israel, I wanted to let you know that JCAT staff, Headteachers and Governors are doing all that is possible to keep your children safe, whilst attempting to maintain a calm and purposeful atmosphere in the schools. There have been many communications with CST from individuals both within the schools and the JCAT central team and the unequivocal advice from CST is that children are safer in school. Your headteacher will have been working tirelessly against a rapidly shifting background, dealing with individual queries and liaising with security services, councils and local police to ensure that all possible safety precautions are being taken.
Please rest assured of our ongoing attention to the matters in hand and empathy for the stress and anxiety that you and your families are currently experiencing.
