Following a recent inspection, Leehurst Swan is delighted to have, once again, met the requirements to be included in CReSTeD’s Register of schools providing provision for pupils with dyslexia.
The Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils (CReSTeD) aims to help parents, and those who advise them, choose an educational establishment to support a child with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD). It also provides feedback to the school on the quality of teaching and learning for children with SPLD and recommends changes where appropriate.
The report summarised ‘Leehurst Swan School provides a thorough and well-resourced level of support for its SEND pupils. It provides a nurturing environment for the children who benefit from the support given by the skilled Learning Support staff, classroom teachers and the subject staff throughout the school. The parents are involved at all stages of provision and review.’
Leehurst Swan’s headmaster, Mr Philip Oldroyd, said: ‘We are thrilled to have met CReSTeD’s high standards and to have them recognise that our staff have considerable expertise, not only in classroom teaching, but in the field of Dyslexia. This is a very important report and we are delighted with it.’ Mr Oldroyd continued, ‘I want to thank all our staff for their commitment to providing the very best education and care for our students, this report is confirmation of their hard work.’
