Gesher School is a new SEN school located in Cricklewood North West London that opened last September.
The school provides a specialist meaningful learning environment for children with special educational needs and specialises in autism spectrum challenges. This includes language, communication and social pragmatic difficulties.
Children are at the heart of Gesher School, where a sense of belonging and community is fostered. It offers a happy, safe, friendly and stimulating environment in which children are supported to learn, interact and have fun. Gesher believe that all children have the potential to achieve, but that every child is individual and requires a tailored, child-centred approach to learning.
Occupational Therapy is at the core of the school's curriculum and the pupils each have a sensory experience according to their individual needs to prepare them for learning.
The school applied to us for a number of vital items to equip their new exciting facility and we had no hesitation supporting this worthwhile project with significant funding to enable them to achieve their goal.
We are privileged, not only to help Gesher School but also to dedicate the funding of the equipment to The Garrard Family Foundation being a long-time generous supporter of Lifeline 4 Kids.
A dedication ceremony took place on Friday November 24th and the photo shows, from left to right, school co-founders Ali Durban and Sarah Sultman, patron of Lifeline 4 Kids Sir David Garrard and our chairman, Roger Adelman.
