Special Education Needs

Hazlegrove provides an excellent education for its dyslexic pupils. They benefit from high quality specialist tuition from skilled and dedicated teachers as well as a broad, well balanced curriculum taught by staff with a good knowledge of dyslexia and how it impacts on a child's learning. We seek to help pupils with Special Educational Needs, or Learning Difficulties, to achieve their individual potential and to feel confident within the school community. The support unit comprises 3 dedicated rooms containing specialist equipment, up to date IT facilities and a library. Pupils usually have 2 lessons per week which are multi-sensory in design and meet individual needs. Each pupil has an IEP and there are close links between the unit and the class teachers. We are a CReSTeD Category DU school offering a Dyslexic Unit. 09-09
