As a Dyslexia school, we will provide quality teaching, differentiated as needed. We will identify and respond to unexpected difficulties, actively working to include all students so they can achieve in all areas of learning.
We feel that more children are successful when taught using dyslexia friendly teaching methods. By teaching in this way, we aim to make our teaching and learning fully accessible to all students. We will try and discover how each student learns best and we will use a variety of multisensory activities including practical activities ICT, using eyes, ear, speech, fingers, to stimulate learning.
We will use different methods of recording in all areas of the curriculum such as pictures, Dictaphones, photographs of activities and practical outcomes so that students are not always using writing.
We aim to enable to use their strengths for learning while developing the areas they find more difficult.
