The next step was to touch base with teachers at a whole staff meeting and talk through the dyslexia policy and how we might begin on our journey to implement it in the classroom. We talked about the policy in terms of taking "small steps" and broke it down into four areas to tackle - first, next, then and last.
2. Begin to use Fawcett/Nicolson Dyslexia Screening Test in Term 3 2010
3. Set up a Learning Support Forum made up of a member of staff from each syndicate. This forum will meet termly and provide a way in which to ensure consistency throughout the school in our approach to becoming fully dyslexia aware.
This meeting provided a great opportunity to rally the troops!
