Dyslexia friendly schools

Swindon Borough Council applies a 'whole-school' approach, which actively and deliberately includes pupils with dyslexia. The aim is to encourage all Swindon schools to strive to be 'dyslexia friendly'.

Having understood and identified the needs of a pupil with dyslexia and literacy difficulties, the next stage is to ensure that pupils receive the appropriate help. 

Further information 

Swindon Borough Council has produced a series of five brochures which fully explain how dyslexia can be recognised and identified formally.

For further information about the principles of Dyslexia Friendly Schools and how the 'Swindon Borough Council Dyslexia Friendly Quality Mark' is awarded to schools that meet the required standard, please refer to  Becoming a Dyslexia Friendly School (PDF)
