My name is Miss Alexa and I oversee the provision for students with Specific Learning Difficulties including students with a dyslexic profile. The Petchey Academy offers a personalised educational intervention support for students who have been identified as showing signs of Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia).The Academy supports students with an intervention and support plan in order to  allow them to progressively support them with their literacy needs. By working with the students on a 1:1 provision or in small groups, the teaching is adapted to the student’s needs and it enables them to grow in confidence. Students also receive support once in KS4 and 5 by benefiting from access arrangements for national exams. Their needs are supported by holistic approach where specialist teachers and teachers work together in meeting the needs of the students with Specific Learning Difficulties.
