Why do we need JCoSS now that other Jewish schools have had to change their admissions policy?
JCoSS's ethos is all about what happens in the school: that is what makes us inclusive and cross-communal. Our admissions policy is only one small part of our inclusive approach. What's more, JCoSS's approach is and always has been to find ways to count people in rather than to exclude them. We are unique in not making synagogue attendance mandatory: we value Jews equally however they choose to engage with the community, be it through a synagogue and through religion, be it through education, charitable work, sport, culture or so on.
