Dyslexia

"Provision for pupils with SEND is of high quality and the skilled one-to-one support they receive is instrumental in the excellent progress they make"

ISI Inspection 2012

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/dyscalculia specialists the Dyslexia Unit also offers support via our Target Reading and Target Numeracy schemes as well as classroom based support throughout the school.
