“St. Michael’s Church of England School, established upon Christian foundations, and living out the Christian faith, is committed to providing every child with an excellent education.”
We promote our Vision through the key words:
‘Create – Equip – Partner’
One in ten children may experience some degree of dyslexia, ranging from very mild to severe. The British Dyslexia Association defined dyslexia as:
‘Dyslexia is a learning difference, a combination of strengths and weaknesses which affect the learning process in reading, spelling, writing and sometimes numeracy.’
As a part of our dyslexia friendly approach at St Michael’s, we recognise that children with dyslexia are more likely to experience difficulties with self – esteem and emotional well-being than their peers. This may also impact on their learning.
At St Michael’s, senior leaders and governors are committed to supporting children with dyslexia across the curriculum. All staff receive training aimed at developing their expertise and understanding of dyslexia. It is the teacher’s responsibility to recognise the signs of dyslexia and liaise with the Inclusion team. Parents and carers are invited to discuss provision maps and progress termly at Inclusion parent meetings. Parental views are considered an important part of planning and provision.

In October 2018, for the 2nd consecutive time, the school was recognised and highly commended for the excellent work it does to support pupils with dyslexia. The Local Authority awarded us with the accolade of being a ‘Dyslexia Friendly School’. We are delighted with this outcome and the recognition given to the school who work in partnership with parents to support pupils.
