Here at St Michael's, we are pleased to provide the Dyslexia Base for all Enfield Primary and Secondary staff.
With one in ten of the population estimated to have dyslexia, it is likely that every teacher will be teaching children on the dyslexic continuum.
The school provides termly workshops for SENCOs, teachers and teaching assistants. Each session includes information and advice around a particular theme, an opportunity to browse resources and a chance to seek advice from specialist dyslexia teachers. The base also runs training sessions for NQTs.
We aim to provide opportunities to gain an insight into some of the difficulties experienced by these children and young people and consult on how the classroom can be adapted to support pupils, particularly with muliti-sensory methods in mind.
