Dyslexia Friendly Schools

Wiltshire Council's Specialist SEN Service (SSENS) is currently supporting our school to gain the Dyslexia Friendly Schools Quality Mark. We will gain the award following a verification visit from the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).

The award is issued to schools or organisations that can demonstrate that they provide high quality education and/or practice for dyslexic individuals. Obtaining the Quality Mark provides a framework for schools to improve their understanding of dyslexia and literacy difficulties and to develop strategies that support the achievement and engagement of dyslexic learners.

Holding the Quality Mark is a positive statement and lets everyone know that the school is a good place for dyslexic individuals and Wiltshire Council is committed to the dyslexia-friendly schools project.

Becoming a dyslexia friendly school requires the involvement and commitment of all of those within the school, and a review of the school's approach to:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Monitoring and assessment
  • Differentiation
  • High-quality practice across the range of ability and need.
