Dyslexia Aware Quality MarK

Trafford's Inclusive Dyslexia Aware Quality Mark aims to provide a framework of support and understanding for schools which enable the dyslexic individual to build on existing skills and develop new.

 

Everyone at St Anne's School has been receiving additional training to ensure that we have a good knowledge of the needs of children with dyslexic difficulties. We have strived to create an inclusive learning environment and provide resources that enable all our learners to access the curriculum. 

 

This award is issued only to those organisations that have met its rigorous quality standards and demonstrates public recognition that they provide high quality education and practice for dyslexic individuals. St Anne's School is currently working towards achieving this award.
