DYSLEXIA AWARENESS WEEK 6-11 NOVEMBER

You will notice that staff are wearing blue ribbons this week to raise awareness of Dyslexia and to show support to our pupils who have dyslexia.  I have blue ribbons  to give to pupils. All you need to do is find the name of a famous person – living or dead – who has dyslexia then tell me their name.  I will be around my office at break and lunchtimes this week.
