Dyslexia Friendly Schools

During lockdown our P4-P7 classes were asked to design a logo that could be used on our displays and posters in school to help us become a more inclusive school  (a Dyslexia Friendly School).

Olivia in P4 was chosen as the winner by Mrs McKillop, Mrs Hastings and Miss McGhee.  This logo will be used throughout the school and on all DFS documentation from now on.  Well Done Olivia!

 

‘Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling.

It’s a specific learning difficulty, which means it causes problems with certain abilities used for learning, such as reading and writing.

Unlike a learning disability, intelligence isn’t affected.

It’s estimated up to 1 in every 10 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a lifelong problem that can present challenges on a daily basis, but support is available to improve reading and writing skills and help those with the problem be successful at school and work.’

Our judges found it very difficult to choose and these were chosen as runner ups.
