1. Dyslexia, affecting up to 1 in 10 children, is often misunderstood and sidelined in many of our schools. Chances are you know someone with dyslexia, but what you may not realise is that 1 in 4 children fail to master the basics of writing at the end of primary school and for reading this is 1 in 9, having a life long impact for some.

    We empower whole school teams to recognise, understand, teach and support pupils with literacy difficulties, including dyslexia, in a practical and effective way.

  5. We have developed our approach to literacy difficulties to encompass the whole school because they affect every aspect of your teaching across all years and all subject areas. Led by the Senior Management team, a high level of integration and collaboration by staff, parents and pupils presents far more opportunities for improvement beyond that of a single teacher or teaching assistant in a limited supportive role.
