Dyslexia friendly schools

We apply an approach that actively includes all pupils with dyslexia. The aim is to encourage all Swindon schools to strive to be 'dyslexia friendly'.

Once we have understood and identified the needs of a pupil with dyslexia and literacy difficulties, the next stage is to ensure that they receive appropriate help. 

The following series of five downloadable documents help to explain how dyslexia can be formerly recognised and identified:

Further information about the principles of Dyslexia Friendly Schools is available in the Becoming a dyslexia friendly school (PDF). The 'Swindon Borough Council Dyslexia Friendly Quality Mark' is awarded to schools that meet the required standard.

The following documents provide further information on the common issues associated with dyslexia:
