SEND Home Learning Support

Dear Parents and Carers, 


Please see attached a document filled with resources and websites to help your child who may have some additional needs.  The document is filled with websites and ideas to help support your child with their home learning, as well as some information which may give you some direction and support for a specific special need, such as the Autism Spectrum Disorder.  


Alongside this, I would like to remind parents whose children attend the NESSY sessions that they are able to access this at home.  There is also an excellent programme to boost reading and spelling called Dyslexia Gold, despite its name, it is not just for children with dyslexia, all children will benefit from this greatly - please see Mrs Abel's letter which can be found on the schools home page.    As well as this, I have attached a home learning pack from Twinkl specific to children with SEND.  Please see the link below.  


The links and instructions are as follows - 


Nessy - If your child has a NESSY log in please encourage them to be using it daily.  The username is their name and the secret word is volcanicdruid

Dyselxia Gold - This is free access to a reading and spelling programme.  On average, you child's reading improves by 4.1 months for every month played and 3.5 months for spelling.  Please see Mrs Abel's letter on how to access this on the school's home page.

If you need any further advice, support or have any questions, please feel free to contact me on my school email -

Keep safe,

Kind regards,
