We are delighted to announce Cambridgeshire Dyslexia Guidance has been updated
Thank you to all who responded to the Local Authorities Dyslexia survey. As a result of this the Cambridgeshire Dyslexia Guidance has now been updated. The main changes include: separating the guidance from the research document, writing a ‘quick guide’ for parents and improving links to the most up-to-date websites. We are delighted that the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) continues to commend the Cambridgeshire literacy difficulties/dyslexia guidance.
This document has been written to provide guidance to professionals and parents on the most current approaches to support the successful inclusion and attainment of children and young people with dyslexia. The document forms part of the wider Cambridgeshire Local Offer which covers information on the local provision for Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disability. It is a working document and will be reviewed biennially, or sooner if there is significant new research.

Support for children and young people with SEND and mental health problems is to get a huge boost in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire after the area was designated an Opportunity Area by the government.
It’s just been announced that the two districts will share £6m of extra funding to increase opportunities for “disadvantaged” children and young people. The plan aims to boost their communication, language and reading, raise aspirations and recruit, develop and retain the best leaders and teachers in the region’s schools.
One of the top priorities of the plan is to “strengthen the effectiveness of support for children and young people with mental health concerns and those with Special Educational Needs.”
