“Mrs Harden Davies is a very experienced and well qualified teacher who takes great pride in her pupils and the work of her department and the school.  Over the last 17 years she has developed and fine-tuned the provision for pupils with special educational needs so that it works very successfully and efficiently throughout the school.”

Our School has undertaken a review of the Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) policy in line with the new Code of Practice effective from the 1st September 2014.

The Dyslexia and Learning Extension Unit (DLEU) oversees the provision for all SEND pupils within the school and is renowned for its excellent provision for mild to moderate dyslexic pupils.

Mayville has seen many success stories with dyslexic pupils.  Children from 4 to 16 can receive help in the DLEU, and since each pupil’s difficulties will manifest themselves in different ways an individual programme of work will be designed for them based on a full assessment.

As well as having a team of fully qualified dyslexia specialists the Dyslexia Unit also offers support via our Target Reading and Target Numeracy schemes as well as classroom based support throughout the school.
