In June 2019 Granby achieved the Dyslexia Friendly Kite-Mark. With support from the British Dyslexia Association and the Learning Team at the local authority we have devised a comprehensive action plan that identifies what we need to do to continue to be a Dyslexia friendly school. The SENCo leads our school focus on this area, there is a continuing focus on the following:
Leadership and management
The quality of learning
Creating a climate for learning
Partnerships with parents/carers/governors
Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn’t always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum — one that doesn’t necessarily fit with labels like “normal” and “defective.”
Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain. Follow this link to see what she says about it. What is Dyslexia?
