Literacy

Our school is working in collaboration with the Driver Youth Trust - a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people, with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND. In collaboration between DYT, we have adopted the Drive for Literacy model that addresses the needs of those who struggle with literacy and may be dyslexic. Our school leadership, whole school and key staff (SEND/Literacy Leads) have access to Drive for Literacy workshops, resources and parent support and advice to ensure pupils with literacy difficulties are able to access the curriculum and experience success as learners. More information on this model, which includes useful information and free resources for parents and schools can be found at www.driveryouthtrust.com and on Twitter .
