HKS is delighted to announce that all teaching staff have achieved a Level 2 award in Dyslexia Awareness. Madame White, who achieved the Masters Level NASENCo award in 2017, will soon qualify with an Accredited Certificate in Dyslexia; Literacy, Support and Intervention, which will give her Approved Teacher Status (ATS.) According to the British Dyslexia Association, holders of ATS are recognised as Specialist Teachers of Learners with Specific Learning Difficulties. Mrs White explains, ‘as a dyslexia-friendly school, we promote good practice for teaching and learning which benefits all children, not just those who may have a learning difference.’ This is an exciting time for the school, as it looks forward to the opening of a new Learning Support Unit, which will meet the needs of all the pupils in the school.
