Dyslexia Gold

Carla Thom, Head of School: Spelling Tutor (part of Dyslexia Gold) has really made a huge impact on our spelling results and we have rolled it out across the whole school now, regardless of ability or SEND status. It now forms an integral part of our day for regular spelling and reading repeated practice. It uses spaced repetition to focus on what words individuals needs to learn sequentially. It caters for all learners, including spelling words from Y5/6 NC lists.
Eileen Maceachern, SENCO: Dyslexia Gold is cost-effective, easy to set up and simple for children to use. Our children particularly enjoyed playing Engaging Eyes.
Sue Wells, Specialist teacher: The high frequency words cover a good deal of the national curriculum and therefore go a long way to improving a child's day to day spelling in their written work - this in turn improves their confidence, which is important
