Spelling Strategy

This week we launched our Spelling Strategy at school as part of a Dyslexia Friendly School.  The school is devising a number of initiatives which will not only be beneficial for children with Dyslexia but with the whole cohort.  These initiatives are being put into practice by class teachers with the assistance of the SPLD staff.  Parents are being invited for an in-class session about the topic.
