It was a pleasure to visit Gesher School, a Jewish SEND school which has recently moved to Pinner. I was joined this morning by Daniel Kosky from the London Jewish Forum and Jonathan Mindell, former Chair of Pinner United Synagogue.
I was firstly given a tour of the impressive facilities and it was great to hear about plans to enhance them over the next year few years. It was also particularly useful to talk in detail with headteacher Tamaryn Yartu and the team about Gesher's innovative approach to special needs education, and for them to share with me their bold ambition for their children and young people's future.
I also enjoyed popping into a few classrooms to speak with some of the pupils, who seemed particularly happy with the lunches cooked by the school's in-house chef.
Once again, I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for showing me around. I very much look forward to visiting again in the future (and hopefully sampling one of these legendary lunches!).
