New Beginnings

November 28th, 2016

Literacy Centre Support Referrals

Octavo’s Literacy Centre is now accepting referrals for pupils to join the centre for Literacy support in the Spring Term 2017.

Our Literacy Centre offers a ‘new beginning’ for children struggling with literacy. Our intensive programme of support helps overcome barriers to learning and assists greater inclusion in the mainstream curriculum.

After spending time at our centre, many pupils achieve expected literacy levels for their peer group and require much less direct support in school. All of our children make progress.

Children at the Literacy Centre benefit from:

  • Mixing with children with similar difficulties
  • Experienced teachers of young people with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties
  • A highly structured and individualised programme
  • Multi sensory techniques
  • Increased confidence
  • Improved literacy skills
  • Learning new strategies
  • Greater independence
  • A changed attitude to learning

If you think this is the right environment for a pupil at your school complete the referral form and send it back to Sarah Clark, Team Leader, Literacy Centre, Howard Primary School, Dering Road, Croydon CR0 1DT or email us.
