May 2016 Update

The SEND department are pleased to announce successful completion of The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust project for 2015-2016. This exciting news means that we have worked towards improving outcomes for our students with Dyslexia - SpLD and literacy difficulties.

As a department we have created a quick guide for all teachers on 'the Simple view of reading', to aid teachers planning and support of students within the classroom. The development of this guide has made a clear impact when supporting within the classroom.

We look forward to continuing our work alongside The Dyslexia-SpLD, in order to improve outcomes for all students.
