What is Legadel? Legadel is a local organisation in north-west London that has been set up to help young children (age 4-7 years old) who have mild or moderate learning difficulties, by providing professional support in schools.

Why was Legadel created? In June 2012, a group of parents and professionals created Legadel, to identify young children who are not thriving in the school system. The focus is on children who are having difficulties mastering key learning skills including fi ne motor coordination, adequate speech and language development, and reading. Any of these problems can lead to behavioural, social or emotional issues, and make the child’s experience of school an unhappy one. Legadel will support parents who are aware their child has a problem and can spend many years trying to find the appropriate help. We understand that, even where help is available the system is extremely complex, lengthy and frustrating. In addition, the financial strain of privately financing many of these vital services can add extra pressure to an already difficult situation. Each one of the founders and trustees of Legadel has experience with children facing difficulties at school, either in a personal or in a professional capacity.

What is Legadel’s Statement?

Mission

To provide children presenting with mild-tomoderate special educational needs, whilst still in their early school years, the support to succeed. Through the development of a personal plan for each child, and the support of specially trained Learning Support Assistants these precious children will have the support they require to help them ‫בס”ד‬ achieve their maximum potential and enjoy their years at school.

outcomes for children in NorthWest London. Through our unified approach, these children and their families will be helped to access all the available facilities, within the school environment. The aim is that children will be in a better position to integrate into school life, socially, emotionally and behaviourally.

What are Legadel’s core values? LEGADEL BELIEVES THAT: • Every child can succeed if the right support is put in place at school. •

Early intervention is vital to enable a child to be successful at school and later in life.

Collaboration between professionals, parents and school staff ensures the optimal success of any intervention and is key to maintaining a child’s educational progress over time.

Having Learning Support Assistants who liaise with the relevant professionals ensures a holistic and effective intervention plan.

Children from families with limited financial means, deserve equal access to all forms of specialist support.

Confidentiality will be preserved for every child receiving Legadel services.

This includes therapy to promote appropriate levels of language, motor, social and emotional development. Legadel can facilitate access to both the Kodesh and Chol curricula.

In what way does Legadel differ from established organisations?

Legadel identifies and manages special educational needs quickly, and avoids becoming caught up in bureaucracy. The prime focus is on providing the required assistance to impact on the child’s achievement levels within the classroom.

A single and cohesive intervention plan will address both the Kodesh and Chol requirements of the child.

How is Legadel financed?

The Menahel or Head teacher will promote Legadel’s involvement and ensure full cooperation of all the staff.

Parents are asked to pay 40% of the costs (although no child will be refused support due to lack of funds).

The school SENCo will identify the children in need of Legadel’s assistance and monitor their progress as they access the mainstream curriculum.

We have already begun to seek assistance from the government, the local authority and grant awarding bodies.
